The more things change, the more they stay the same.

People say they want changes, but when they are given what they ask for, the masses tend to react badly.
Often there are nasty comments, protest websites and aggressive facebook pages.

Common people don’t REALLY like change. They especially don’t like changes to how things work on the internet.
Which is interesting, since the internet is made to be an agent of change.

If nothing else, the internet does offer one thing to the masses that they are all happy about – it gives them a voice.

Sadly, the bad thing about the internet is also that it gives everyone a voice. EVERYONE.
Good , Bad or Uneducated and Ignorant.

I know people who spend more time on their social networks than they do with their kids.

I can already imagine the psychologists and therapists that are wringing their hands in delight at the thought of this.
Very soon, there will be people who need help to get over their abandondment issues caused directly by the lack of attention they are recieving right now.

But you need to face facts here – Being popular on a social network is a full time job. If you are serious about it, you gotta put in the hours.
The internet gods know this, which is why games exist. Then the kids can be kept occupied killing imaginary things, or doing challenges that they will never need to replicate, while the adults talk to people that are not actually there.

See how life just sort of works out evenly?
