in Smartphone Addiction

BEFORE | AFTER

There is a before/after in our life; and with “our” I mean we people born before the digital natives generation. I am talking about the moment when the smartphones decided to walk in our lives and take possess of them.

It was not that long ago, actually. Up until only 10 years ago we were able to handle our life (with all its cheerful time and struggles) without smartphone at all. Now most of us can’t imagine a day – and a life* – without it. It didn’t take them that long and, in a blink of an eye, basically everyone started walking down the streets with the face stuck to the smartphone screen.

* usually a feeling reserved to the soulmate.

Do we really need it? Do we remember how it was before?

Here are some pictures that ironically show you the difference.

“Did anyone say something??”

What if now I tell you to change our point of view? Let’s read the pictures from right to left. Do you still think a change is impossible?
