Are we going back in time?

Are we going back in time?

I remember when the Internet was a group of bulletin boards giving us information in the form of articles.

Nowadays we access the articles via a search engine but we are given the same information but with pretty colours and images. Our social media feeds are becoming the place we consume news and opinion articles. We seem to be drifting away from social media sites initial intent, keeping up with friends and family over a large geographical area. Social media is now the place we consume news articles and opinion pieces. We then attempt to make our voices heard in the crowd of opinions, but we come full circle because the only people who will hear us are our family and friends.

Couple the “advances” with the troll factor and we are definitely back in 1994. Trolls have been around since time in memorium and they will continue to be there for as long as they can hide their identity and get away with it.
