There are days when I just can’t stand to see the state of the Internet. And today is one of those days….ugh!! It used to be that the Internet was a resource for one and all…a place to get and give information, to lend a helping hand, and to provide encouragement where needed. Sure, you can still do that, but now you have to navigate through a quagmire of commercialism. Everybody wants you to click on their links, earn a few pennies more…”Such a Wonderful Story, but What She Did Next Just Shocked Me!!”. Give me a break for crying out loud!!
Just look at Facebook as an example…I’m on it so that I can stay in touch with my kids. But the tons of junk you have to put up with is incredible. I’m at the point of why bother…it’s just not worth it.
But, my kids use it, and I love seeing their posts. After college, they ended up halfway across the country. (Note…don’t let your kids transfer to far-off colleges…they may never return!!). Guess I’ll keep using Facebook…at least for another day. Or two.
