    Ya well after all these are forums for a game that came out in 1984, I kind of expected it but not at this level

    If you do not like any specific social media - then do the adult thing and don't use/view it.

    But stop the name calling, please.

    Generational warfare is as old as civilisation itself.

    Perhaps for the older folk in the game Frontier can send them telegrams whenever they have important news to share.

    You're doing it yourself by the way. I assume you realised I'm poking some fairly gentle fun at the detrators. I'm 46. Age tells you nothing about a person.

    What if you hate ALL social media?

    I know, old timer, "don't use it" - but I already don't and only want to spread the word that one can live a full, productive, informed and happy life free of it.

    ---

    "Garbage Generation" - There were the Baby Boomers, then Generation X, then the short-lived Generation Y, the Millennials, and finally the "Garbage Generation", but it's not quite what it sounds like - the GG are growing up with everything being disposable - and will generate more waste than the previous generations before them, but that's only part of it - in addition to all the disposables, they are also starting to shift in the socio-political views and values too, and will also dispose of a lot of remnants of both the Old Left and the Old Right - throwing out many of the "new" values, the extremes of Political Correctness, the extremes of both social justice and injustice, creating sweeping reforms in their wake, and they will come to embrace this terminology, in part because it sounds so harsh, but also in part because of how much garbage they will be getting rid of as well.

    I'm still in the "Frontier Expo Thread" right? Everyone knows they can live a normal life without having to check your mate on instagram every 5 minutes, the fact that they don't want to do it is another thing and in the end they are entirely free to leave ve as they wish. If they want to live their entire lives in front of a monitor then they can do it, if they want to live everything without a single minute wasted on social media then that's totally ok too, what's not ok is bashing those that don't prefer such lifestyle.

    Anyways I won't proceed to do further derailing, nice to see FD expanding to more social networks.

    I never said it did,what I meant by that was that it was expected to find people that were going to act the way they did.

    And I did realized you weren't all that serious, sorry if any offense was taken.

    Aren't you all advertising the fact that you don't like advertising?

    Generations are meaningless borders drawn by marketing analysts.

    Not a big fan of insta, really. However, I assume anything relevant will be reposted here in short order.
