This is a natural phenomenon also known as Contagious Yawning. Certain psychologists and biologists have studied this and they believe there are some specific factors that could be responsible for this and they're clearly not tiredness, sleepiness or empathy. It's not even infection as even reading the word "Yawn" will make you yawn often, It is common amongst almost half of the young generation, except children below 10 years of age.

According to a survey, contagious yawning has been observed more in humans and chimpanzees than any other being. Even whilst reading this answer, you might have yawned a few times. Age is the most important factor/predictor in this as the only specific age group is affected by this the most.

The basic message that neurotransmitters send is called the action potential. It is an electro-chemical impulse that travels down the axon at extremely fast speed (100m per second) towards the soma. The soma and axon are two parts of a neuron, and the third part is dendrites (like branches). Each part has an important function. The axon's main function is to carry the message, as described above, from the soma to the terminal buttons.
