Have you heard about the Zombie generation? It is real and it is here! Have you noticed the number of people texting, browsing, navigating, and talking with their smartphones while walking, shopping, waiting in office lines, malls, streets, or theaters, and even driving? I bet that you can see a lot of them around, like an epidemic. They are everywhere. Some are surfing the web, interacting with their social platforms; while others are sending text messages or talking. Many other are only reading the news or seeing YouTube videos. The thing is that they are not just interacting with their smartphones, the thing is that they are so immersed and occupied that they don’t interact with other people around them. They can even ignore each others like there is no one there. It looks that they are acting like robots, or even worst, like I would call them, acting like Zombies.
