Having trouble telling apart someone playing Pokemon Go from any old person browsing Facebook or texting on the street? Here are five simple clues:
- Pokemon Go players walk slowly, in circles, into things, without purpose, like they’re sleepwalking. Facebookers and txters still walk into people, but they walk in straight lines.
- When a Pokemon Go player stops, they’ll stop in the most inconvenient places possible – in the middle of the street, in front of oncoming traffic, blocking thoroughfare… Most Facebookers and txters have the sense to stand to the side.
- Pokemon Go players travel in packs and are dressed like they belong in a D&D pyjama party. Facebookers and txters look like regular people.
- Pokemon Go players can’t resist telling the nearest person to them what they just caught. Kind of like vegans, cross-fitters and anti-vaxxers.
- Pokemon Go players use their index fingers in broad swipes like they’re about to cast Wingardium Leviosa. Facebookers tend to poke, while txters use their thumbs.
