An eerie photo of Mark Zuckerberg walking past rows of unaware individuals plugged into virtual reality headsets has been called 'the zombie apocalypse' and compared to 'The Matrix'.

The photo has raised a questions about the future of virtual reality, amid growing concerns will make us more isolated.

However, Zuckerberg today hit back at critics, and says that what is going on in the photo is completely the opposite, because everyone connected to the headset 'was sharing the same experience'.

The picture was taken at the Mobile World Congress last week.

Zuckerberg sat down with Die Welt, a German newspaper, after he received the Axel Springer Awarded for being an exceptional innovator and entrepreneur.

The Facebook CEO opened up about why he was smiling and enjoying the walk as he passed a sea of unaware individuals hooked up to VR headsets.

'What was going inside the headsets was a video of children playing soccer in some faraway place,' Zuckerberg explained.

'Nothing could be further from the truth,' Zuckerberg explained.

'The exact opposite is the case.What was going inside the headsets was a video of children playing soccer in some faraway place.' 

'You could look around and you could see the kids playing soccer around you and it was a shared experience with everyone in that place that would have been impossible experience otherwise.' 

'It would have kind of been like going to a movie but a much more personal thing where you are all actually in it.'

'I think people tend to be worried about every new technology that comes along.'

'Critics worry that if we spend time paying attention to that new kind of media or technology instead of talking to each other that that is somehow isolating.' 

'But humans are fundamentally social. So I think in reality, if a technology doesn’t actually help us socially understand each other better, it isn’t going to catch on and succeed.'

'You could probably go all the way back to the first books. I bet people said ‘why should you read when you could talk to other people?’ 

'The point of reading is that you get to deeply immerse yourself in a person’s perspective. Right?'

'Same thing with newspapers or phones or TVs. Soon it will be VR, I bet.'

'It would have kind of been like going to a movie but a much more personal thing where you are all actually in it.'

The social media tycoon has been working on bringing virtual reality to the masses for some time now.

The firm bought Oculus in 2014 for $2 billion and has since partnered with Samsung for the development of the Gear VR headset.

When the picture was snapped at the conference there were more than 5,000 attendees watching the kids playing soccer with the headset.

'I think people tend to be worried about every new technology that comes along,' Zuckerberg said to Die Welt am Sonntag.

'Critics worry that if we spend time paying attention to that new kind of media or technology instead of talking to each other that that is somehow isolating.'

'But humans are fundamentally social. So I think in reality, if a technology doesn't actually help us socially understand each other better, it isn't going to catch on and succeed.'

Some individuals compared the image to 'The Matrix', which depicts a machine create dream world that humans believe is real.

Jonathan Wade likened it to Apple's 1984-inspired Super Bowl ad, which heralded the introduction of the Macintosh personal computer. 

The ad opens with ambiguous subjects marching in unison toward a giant screen with a Big Brother-like figure, who speaks to an obeying crowd.

Zuckerberg has described headset-based technology 'the next platform', following on from traditional social media websites such as Facebook.

You could probably go all the way back to the first books,' he said.

'I bet people said 'why should you read when you could talk to other people?' 

'The point of reading is that you get to deeply immerse yourself in a person's perspective. Right?

'Same thing with newspapers or phones or TVs. Soon it will be VR, I bet.'

Not only does the sixth riches person in the world believe virtual reality is going to be the most social platform on the market, he just said 'if people want world peace, all they have to do is share more on Facebook'.

The chief executive officer of Facebook said that the social network's mission really focuses on 'giving everyone the power to share all of the things that they care about'.

As Zuckerberg became the first recipient of the newly established Axel Springer Award for outstanding entrepreneur personality, he told the audience that sharing more on Facebook 'makes the world more understanding'.

The idea he says is 'that everyone has the power to share those things, then that makes the world more understanding, it helps people stay closer to the people who they love, all these good things that we value', according to Market Watch.
