This makes me feel old. While we are at it, let's have a being-grumpy-old-men-about-technology-and-social-media general.
>BROOKE: If you want to take a screenshot without your friend knowing, turn on airplane mode, take the screenshot, log out of the app immediately, turn off airplane mode, and then load the app back up.
I don't understand.
The girl straight up admits she doesn't look at the snaps she gets. She responds without looking. So too, presumably, do her friends.
That's not communication. What the fuck is it? I FEEL LIKE A FUCKING ALIEN WHAT THE FUCK IS THE POINT OF ANY OF THIS
no, shut up, learn some more words
technically, meme could describe whats happening, but kids these days are certifiably dumber than the last generation, & have an INSANELY strong follower complex.
'all the other kids are doing it' is essentially how they make decisions. i know i had some of that growing up, most people probably did, but damn its huge with these kids
about to drop it after 2 posts and 100 "promoted tweets"
why do people always forget about Gen Y, the next shittiest thing after Gen X?
it's a bunch of networked nodes pinging each other at random intervals to estimate uptime percentages
This. Yik Yak = normie 4chan. They let you put images in the thread OP's and everything. And no "tripcodes" or even names, though for each "thread" you have a set identity. Although I don't think as many people use it as when it first came out.
They are always connected. They never are able to have any isolation at all to be truly self reliant. It's hard to grow and change when everyone is always connected to everyone. They never have to think for themselves because they have a digital leash around their necks at all times. Pic related, typical millennial.
>'all the other kids are doing it' is essentially how they make decisions
to be fair that's pretty much every teenager ever, it's just we're all more "connected" so we see more precisely what other people are doing
>Right off the bat, I could see that my journey as Bitchamin was going to be a difficult one. Brooke and Elsbitch were very advanced doodlers.
I COULD DRAW BETTER SHIT ON MY CLASSWORK IN 2ND GRADE
Oh wow, so the app recognizes the printscreen and sends a notification of it?
I know what's next, eventually apps like facebook chat will recognize when you looked at the notifications to not have your message showing up as read, and warns about it.
Eventually apps will record several seconds of your reaction upon receiving a message by using the mic and camera only to send that file to the other user straight afterwards.
The botnet just keeps getting better and better.
>wanting to know how teenagers use technology so you can feel that you fit in instead of wanting to know just enough to profit from it
do you guys ever learn?
Diaspora is shit because it's Ruby. GNU Social is a bit nicer.
It's just a numbers game, anon. Snapshit as much as you can to as many people as you can. Find some people who also want to boost scores and literally snap each other constantly.
It's like the Borg, but without the cool augmentations.

So you can get away with anything related to spying just by giving a stupid reason?
>M$ does not spy, it collects data only to enhance features and fix problems.
>Facebook does not spy they are making a study.
>Having pizza is fine, it's just research for when you have a daughter.
The purpose is similar to basically any other social media: SHOWING OFF
> Hey look at me riding a horse. YOU CAN'T.
> Hey look at me drinking and being an adult
> Hey look at me skipping class
> Hey look at me ...
I'm 29 too and this article upsets me. I don't know why.
Maybe because I had no friends or social life as a child and people like Brooke would call me awkward, making me feel miserable and waste my teens feeling insecure. Or maybe because-no, yeah, that's it. Fuck Brooke and her ilk
Facebook does let people know if you have need the notification of a message.
The little blue tick means that he has seen my message, but hasn't opened it. If the blue circle was white, it means he hasn't seen the notification on his device.
Is it bad that I'm 24 and am already just as bitter toward what kids are doing now days as some of the 60+ year olds that I went to church with when I was 13 were about kids back then?
I hate the recent "selfies social media" . I don't want to fucking show a picture of me every 5 seconds, I just want to chat with people about stuff and share images.
Those anonymous social media like yak that only allow to upload photos would become somewhat passable if you could also upload pictures but nah, that's not how the NSA wants you to interact.
I'd be down for adding some /g/oons. I'm not posting my user tho.
So from what this article is saying people use this app to send pictures that no one will ever see just so they can receive a picture they won't look at to send another that won't be seen. WTF That's like a blind person watching a movie so they can paint a picture from it later.
