MOBILE DEVICES HAVE GOT OUR NECKS BENT, EYES BULGING AND FINGERS TAPPING.
You probably may be asking yourself if we are being serious right now. Do we literally mean to say no to vaccination? Vaccination is the reason Africa has nearly kicked out polio and a large number of diseases that affect infants and also helped win the fight against Ebola. Vaccination is the reason, in my opinion, malaria is impotent in Africa. So how do we say no to this? This article really is about saying no to a new type of epidemic that has broken out among people especially millennials, so keep reading a little longer to see the perspective.
As we know, lifestyle is periodically evolving globally, particularly Africa as many factors driving these changes didn’t exist yesterday. I’ve heard stories about the difficulties our fathers experienced while trying to woo our mothers who were living in a different place far from his loving eyes. Little wonder why they used to say that they’d cross a thousand sees just to get a message across. But, these days all those hassles have become stories of we tell when we are at the dinner table because all we need do now is collect her number.
We spend most of our time these days looking down on our mobile devices, everything we need or do can be actualized with one click of the button. My sister doesn’t even know where the market is, she buys all of the groceries from Instagram retailers, I remember the last shoe I got was from an e-commerce website and these were done using the phones. If we aren’t purchasing something, we are virtually hanging out with friends, or uploading and downloading something. The mobile devices, buoyed by the internet have opened a portal to endless possibilities. More like exposing the world to an extremely contagious virus; reminds me of World War Z by Brad Pitt. Even though this innovation has dramatically reduced the time people spend communicating with one another, eye to eye, it has in a solemn way improved connectivity.
So, what’s the invention for the future? Would everyone keep looking down on their screens instead of looking straight to the man standing next to them? Well that’s a thought for another day; however, businesses and certain individuals are saying no to vaccination as the mobile device makes it extremely easier for them to reach their desired audience.
So I TINK that the world is going to embrace this endemic for a pretty long time.
