This picture taken on March 21, 2013 shows a group of people sitting down using their smartphones at a shopping mall in Bangkok. A recent Facebook-sponsored study showed smartphone owners are often connected all day. People can be found glued to their smartphones at airports, on trains, in restaurants and even while walking on the street, creating a disconnection from their immediate surroundings. Smartphone sales are expected to continue to surge in 2013 with some 918 million units to be bought worldwide. AFP PHOTO / Nicolas ASFOURI (Photo credit should read NICOLAS ASFOURI/AFP/Getty Images)
