Social media ruined the world
Internet is GOAT
This is totally accurate. In fact, social media has lead to a rise in suicides in pre-teens and teenagers. Pre-2011 suicide rates were 11 per 100,000
Now, those have nearly doubled to 20 per 100,000
It is destroying the younger generations and is a scourge on society.
There is a markedly generational difference between those who had access to social media later in life and those who got it before high school.
Yeah this,imagine internet culture untouched,everyone in black hoodies doing matrix type shit,treating the internet as a curse and a blessing at the same time and never underestimating it,while now retards used the internet to feel less insecure and post about their new shoes,i fucking hate all fuckers that do this shit,WHO DO YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR? YOURSELF OR OTHERS?
Social media is just the logical course of the internet
Fuck social media. The only social media I'm even on is Discord
> Inb4 le tranny meme
I'm only in one server with some friends. Faceshit/Instashit/Snapshit/Twatter can all get fucked.
The real issue is mixing sex with internet. Take the sexual component from internet and shit will be the same.
For example, if i want to go single again i would have to update both facebook and instagram. So i have more -controlled- social exposure and trying to increase my chances of haveing sex.
Lol I miss lurking /b/ listening to punk rock thinking I was some cool internet pirate hacker dude. The 00's were great.
As someone who actually lived pre-internet, I can tell you that it's roughly like 70/30 in terms of improvements/damage to society.
On one hand, information is available on an insane level of accessibility and just sheer volume of it. Wikipedia alone is a fuckin miracle of modern science, you kids know how awful it was to roam through your local library looking for fucking books when trying to casually learn something? I can access all sorts of indie musicians from around the world and buy their music directly instead of again roaming through a shitty music chain store and only seeing Billboard 200 crap all around me. We can see things happening in real time from different perspectives rather than relying on one camera angle from the evening news, etc.
What does suck about the internet is
-Porn, it absolutely ruined people under the age of like 30
-Politics, it made everyone absolutely retarded where you're either a Kekistani incel or a SJW tranny
-Time sink. When I had free time to myself I would like play the piano or play some sports or do something, but now I just get fat on my computer chair.
Fuck if I ever want to go back to 1991 and dick around with rabbit ears on a television set though. I love living in the future.
That is what Jow Forums is. Literally everything that you can criticize about social media, Jow Forums is exactly and even worse.
Teach me Boomer sensei, what went wrong?
It normalized E V E R Y T H I N G. Kids these days think that it's perfectly normal to choke a girl while pretending that she's your sister and having her squirt piss all over your balls because that's what sex perverts bumped up on the front page of pornhub and other porn websites. All these weird fetishes were absolutely nowhere to be seen even online like 10 years except for the very specific website that did cater to those specific weirdos.
Before the internet, depending on here you live or whatever the most you would see is some titties in movies or maybe some like late night european softcore erotica films - maybe you managed to get your hands on Playboy magazines. It was all very vanilla and normal. if you wanted specific porn you had to A. already have that fetish in you and know it exists and then B. go out to a sex shop and physically buy a tape and hope that no one there knew who you were.
Now you got a whole generation of kids who were beating off since they were like 10 years old when their parents let them have a computer in their room and they were like OH BOY I'M GONNA LOOK AT NAKED BOOBIES and they hop on pornhub or whatever for whatever's on the front page and it's like BLACK TRANNY DRINKS PISS FROM HER COUSIN
It's also why younger millenials and Gen Z s don't have sex as much as previous generations.
warning: it's a million words long, but it's well researched and corroborates my old man rant
>All these weird fetishes were absolutely nowhere to be seen even online like 10 years except for the very specific website that did cater to those specific weirdos.
Well more like 15-20 years. I keep thinking that the early 2000s were 10 years ago.
Yup. My girlfriend had it in highschool, I didn't.
There are some huge differences. They have such an incredibly weird view on the world particularly how social relationships should work. And it's far from correct. Her and her friends at least.

I dunno man.. we were making German shit porn jokes in elementary school long before internet.
Thanks old guy, I'll try to cut down on the porn
Yeah but that's just something that was always in the pop-cultural background noise, like how this or that celebrity had to get like 5 gallons of cum pumped from their stomach or that marilyn manson had his ribs removed so he could suck other guys' dicks. It's just something you heard and repeated without ever knowing the context, pre-internet memes.
You certainly didn't see any german sheise videos or however you spell it, and weren't beating off to it because you got sick of regular porn.

Yeah it’s always funny when anons circlejerk about how terrible social media is and how they’re so enlightened for not using it, but fail to realize that Jow Forums is also a social media site
The funniest thing is how the people who use the NPC meme are absolutely unable to articulate any sort of complex thoughts or more than a few words that aren't r9k copy pasta and memes. They all have the same pepe/wojak folder, they all use the same words, they're all mad at the same websites and groups of people for reasons that they're not totally clear about, but somehow it's everyone else who is incapable of original thoughts.
I think there is a difference in Jow Forums and other social media as Jow Forums is a site where you can't really get popular or gain 'clout'.I would even argue that social media isn't all that bad, I think it's more about how you use it . People with an addictive personality who are constantly posting on Instagram seeking validation and trying to get likes is not healthy but just using it a small amount is fine. I personally use Instagram and Facebook just to look at memes, explore my interests and hobbies, and even just look at art I like.
Look at all the bait threads and bait posts, people here suffer from the same thing you describe where they have addictive personalities and are fishing for likes and comments and validation. Here people are fishing for (You)s.
At least on regular social media people mostly get that attention from positive thing or neutral things like taking selfies or posting pics of their drawings or music or whatever.
Here people get the most attention by shitposting as hard as possible, it's all negative.
I don't like social media and I'm entirely aware that this can be seen under the umbrella. I'd probably be better if this place didn't exist just as much as any of the others.
Far, far easier to appreciate what you have without social media. Without the constant comparison with others on such a wide scale and the addictive elements, by design often, which keep you engrossed in an unhealthy false perception.
tl;dr Fuck this place too.
Usually there is a fucking MOD to delete nefarious threads, although lately all the shitpost spam has been in the form of a question which I guess qualifies as a valid advice thread.
Basically type a shitpost but phrase it as a question
“lol u tk her to da bar?|”
True that's a good point but I think because of the anonymity and also the fact it is looked down upon by society make it so that getting a lot of (you)s doesn't have the real world impact that unfortunately comes along with likes, retweets, etc.
If you want to get an idea of what the world was like right before our modern internet age, watch the movie Empire Records. People and life were so much more fun before the internet blew up huge. I'm gonna go grab my sugar free Monster now.....
Dialy reminder that cavemen had orgies, hallucinogenic mushrooms, running for hours after prey, no idea of existential terror and were in general just chilling and enjoying life
