Society has changed dramatically over the past several decades. The youngest generation doesn’t even remember a time before smartphones.
Recently, the older generations shared their thoughts on things today’s youth would never understand.
RECORDING YOUR FAVORITE SONGS FROM THE RADIO
Before the era of YouTube and Spotify, people didn’t have access to any song ever recorded on demand. People had to wait patiently for their favorite song to come on the radio and being ready to hit ‘record’ as soon as it started.
PEOPLE WERE NOT REACHABLE 24/7
Before everyone had a cell phone in their pocket, “people could not always get a hold of you, and it was a good thing,” said a man.
Being connected have changed the way people live their lives. We can say younger generations depend on their phones.
Thirty years ago there was no Wikipedia, and no online news archives. If you needed to write a school research paper, you had to go to a library, shuffle through the card catalog, and find a book on the subject.
MEMORIZING PHONE NUMBERS
“Once upon a time, you had to REMEMBER people’s phone numbers. You even bought little books to write them down in,” said one user.
People had to remember their parents’ phone number. In our days, it is really hard to find someone who remember his or her own phone number. Now, people just save in their cell phones any phone number.
Before there were digital cameras and then cell phone cameras, you had to buy rolls of film and get them processed. The youngest generation has no concept of owning a dedicated camera, much less taking your film into a shop for processing and not even knowing if the photos were any good for weeks or months.Comparte
