Jump to: navigation, search

A Digital Zombie is a person using digital technology and/or social media to a point that they become fixated only in that faux reality.[1] They have difficulty looking people in the eye or carrying on healthy conversations. Even displaying signs of early onset dementia.[2] Many times they don't see details of life happening around them and they have limited "people" skills inside the real world. Something many internet gurus including Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, is worried about in the future.[3]
