With popularization of smart phone and panel computer, we see a new "Phubbing" group everywhere in our life: aboard bus, in restaurant, hairdressing shop, and in any public place, people could stop to check their phone or panel computer for information or entertainment.
Phubbing is a newly coined term which comes from "photo" and "snub". It describes people who snub someone in favor of a smart phone. Someone jokes “the furthest distance in the world is not the distance between life and death, but you don’t know I stand in front of you while you focus on the mobile.”
Phone is the tool for communication, but it distances people and makes them estranged from each other.
