What can I do when people would rather stare at phone than talk?

Do I even try? I’ve been trying to talk to new people to make new friends but am rejected as people want to stare at phones!
Im female 50.
This in in social or semi social situations.
Im polite and not rude.
We are truly f...d as humans if this is the situation now
In 10 yrs time we wont talk at all.
