I don't know if this is bait or if you're smart enough to understand but I'll try... Nowadays everything wants your attention at all times. Therefore, that's how we do it now. Manage many answers to texts, to email, to hltv etc... However, because everything has to happen really fast, there is no real time for reflection anymore. We don't think long about a reply and hence it is bound to be shallow. When I was a kid I had sometimes 3hours conversations on the phone with a friend. I don't even know what we talked about now because it felt so normal back then. Norwadays I see it on myself, I never have a phone conversation lasting longer than 15mins or so. Conversations, IRL and of course in the for of texts etc... have become really shallow. Of course it really depends on the people too, their education, social background etc. Deep and original and interesting conversations are still possible! But have become rare. Facebook and the like have made it so easy to send messages, but as a result everything we express (think?) has become much more shallow sadly. I really miss the times when people wrote letters, because it forces you to take the time to think about the other person, not just about your immediate interest with them. And why in a day and age where everything has to happen FAST should we ever try to understand someone else deeply or try to resolve conflicts if you can just replace them easily (gf for example)? A lot of people act like that sadly
2019-08-18 13:39
The phone had become a drug for almost all people. I say we have progressed for the worse.

I'm +20yo and i had my first phone a nokia 3310 when i was 11. Now i don't agree with giving kids smart phones solely bcuz of the internet access, making calls and sending messages are not compared to social media and 24/7 internet connection.
2019-08-18 00:09
+1 I don't think it's good for children. For something seemingly social, the internet can encourage extremely antisocial behaviour and 24/7 access is not healthy. +1 also 3310 was the first phone I bought at 16yo, it was just becoming normal for people to have mobile phones.

Not everyone below 20 was given a smartphone when they were young kids, you know? I'm 18 and I recall having to ring the bell when I wanted to hang out with my childhood friend. In the afternoon I wasn't allowed to come over until 3 PM. Later, when I got other friends, I had to use the house phone (which we still have btw), I always hated it lol. I got my first smart phone when I was 14, made things so much easier and I'm glad to live today.

2019-08-18 16:48
I remember it, it wasnt that good, if your friend dont come you walk for nothing, it was better with phone, ''hey wanna come out ?'' If yes then I would maybe go to his door. Best time was still at my 20s we had this group of like 30 people to hang out with. Sadly it didnt last, some grew up or have too much work and woman, and some turned to absolute fucking losers
