Is Technology Turning You Into a Zombie?


Feeling like you’re on the set of The Walking Dead some days? You’re not alone. Most people have observed “Zombie-like” creatures populating our public transport, streets and restaurants. These zombies seem to walk around emotionless, glued to their screen for the next exciting installment of their friend’s brunch photos, a new Yelp review or the latest ice bucket challenge video.

Humour aside, have we become slaves to technology? A McCrindle Research report revealed that Australians spend an average of 10 hours a day of electronic media. The report also suggests we squeeze the screen time across the hours of work and play, hence why most people are starting to resemble the undead as they try to multitask.

Are you displaying some strong Zombie characteristics too? Check out our infographic to find out!
