Will digital eventually take us offline?

What is it that makes us spend so much time online? Anywhere I go, I see so many people heads tucked down like Ostriches, completely absorbed by their mobile devices. And then, when someone looks up to talk about Kim Kardashian’s latest selfie on Instagram, I sincerely fear humanity is doomed. Spending too much time online can lead to stress, sleeping disorders, depression and sever mental illnesses. But even so, people sometimes are simply happier online than in their real lives! How can we use digital to drive people to engage more in offline activities and find the same fulfillingness they do online?
