Of course, texting language, and slangish words would be dropped here since it's a take.
Sometimes I believe fast internet speed and portable devices have done more bad than good actually. I’ll explain why.
During 80s and early 90s people were using computers for their work mostly, or programming or some games. Nothing more. BBS existed as well, but they were a cult thing back then, and it was awesome as it seems…It was the 1st form of online communication and it was givin you some space for having a "life" since you had to pay in order to experience this “alternative” (by then) form of communication.
Then after mid-90s internet became available to the general public, but its speed was so damn low…So it’d be a pain in the ass if you were surfing on the internet for hrs. it was useful for seeking for info mostly. So again people had some space for having a life, still.
Now after 00s when internet was becoming more and more mainstream, and speeds faster, things started becoming shittier. You’ve had to share your internet life with your real-life. It was pretty much important to belong to some internet community more or less, otherwise maybe you’d be passed as a boring and uncool person.
Now at 10s especially things became even worse since internet life now’s considered your PRIMARY life basically. Speeds have become even faster and Guess how many hrs/day you have to spend at least to inform your friends in fb/twitter/ig about where are you, and what are you doing now (I don’t talk about me, but many people do this).
Seems like if you don’t use internet then you’ve got no-life and you are considered an outcast. Not just boring and uncool! so you are pretty much forced to use internet in one way or another. Also you’ve gotta carry your mobile/tablet if you go out for a long time, just to check new updates.
Although there are good points for fast internet speed:
- Download files fast
- Quick access to any info
- Videos are more enjoyable and they don’t get stuck
- Phone’s not locked when you use internet anymore
But still…do you believe internet keeps you very busy indeed?
