The pressure of the generation of Web 2.0 and how to use it

The Internet with its Web 2.0 wave has left its mark on us passed by with social networks like Twitter and Facebook – now even almost every website is commenting. The use of smartphones with photo – and video function for us means that there are hardly things that can not be published and will. Everything has changed: our treatment of personal information, our concentration and our values. This article should be the pressure that weighs, on this generation and how careless we now deal with information, to be always online, always present.


Everyone likes everything

the “ like ” buttons have managed to pull the entire Internet within a very short time. You can show all friends on Facebook with one click on a such button, “ I like it ”. Likewise for YouTube: there’s a thumbs-up, which means, I like this video. The thumbs down, which is also somewhat sheepishly to press, is hardly popular. One has the impression: everyone likes everything. Nay-sayers, critic and bad makers are in the generation of Web 2.0 as “ Mohammed ” or “ fanboy ” verschriehen the opposite side. Discussions tend to be a rarity, finally we like everything really. That something didn’t like that cannot be published of course on Facebook. Apart from the fact that a statement about whether we like something, is not pregnant, of course, advertising experts and data collector behind – who likes something and products must be placed in what way, exactly what is the purpose of the “ like ”-button.

None read more

Have you is ever being caught, as you read an article and … oh a link. This article is also interesting. Moment, I read just a recipe for a dinner, I wanted something else? Those readers who literally read content on a website, belong now to an absolute minority. The bulk of users looking for “ keywords ”, keep reporting brief arguments, any advice or information on a particular subject. “ A book pass ” or “ sink in a novel ” this is from yesterday. Today Twitter is: 140 characters, shorter than a SMS, this is the spirit of the time. Linking on the Internet allows little to focus on content and we don’t want it. We want to click confused by the diversity of media with 10 or more tabs open at the same time in the browser. Some one overwhelmed at this time already read an article in the newspaper, the note of a quotation or a recipe … we are too unfocused for this – no one reads more, we fly only by the rows.

Google knows everything

Knocks someone at the door and asks for information of any kind, is the basic attitude unfavourable. mostly rather “ no thanks, I don’t have time for so little. ” it is then. Here we give but long all price information. Who is logged in on any social network, has never made a comment or participates in any forum? And if we don’t do it already, we take advantage of all Google. Google consumes more power than some State for data processing systems, photographed all over the world and makes feeding cards with information from users. We ask Google, which we would now no longer ask our parents and do not consider whether this information is processed. It has become a natural process to remember anything more, because someone or something has been the answer to my question: Google finds everything for me, Wikipedia has the answer to every question, my phone knows every phone number … the most but even more the number of best friend. The generation of Web 2.0 is carefree, while Google and co. our data – exactly like the man at the front door, asking nicely for two minutes of our time.

Inflation of values

Punctuality and reliability are values that today still play a role in the context of employment and in any application like herself are claimed, but what does it mean today? Today, the magic word is “ plan ”, “ scheduled ” be one of trend terms at all, which is not even negative connotations. The generation of Web 2.0 is scheduled and is not not interested more in binding dates. Appointments will be agreed in the short term, punctuality is already not so important, because the “ I come 10 min later. ” comes by SMS. Not only we ourselves suffer the perpetual availability of virtual, also objects to fall in value: the old Shellac records collection of the uncle had priceless value that was expressed also subjectively by perpetual care. Old books, shelves of CDs … there’s hardly any such thing. The immediate availability of media content that also rarities do not stop, dropping the value immeasurably. If the hard drive before Mp3 overflowing files and already socially adequate it is illegal to download any content, there actually is no more rarities what applies to films. What anything costs, is worth anything. The cinema, which is actually much more social event, became the mere film look degraded, which is also at home on the sofa. Suffer not only the operators of large cinemas, but also the values of society.

All are online: the pressure of the generation of Web 2.0 and how to use it

I want to make the current technical development not worse, than she is. But many don’t see the downside. Social isolation reached today by the pressure on the button of the computer. Hardly the computer is off, ICQ issued a few minutes it says to miss anything. Like an addict taking a look on the phone, which is actually but pointless every few minutes. Admit it to yourself is not easy to not be a bit more relaxed. My tip on how to circumvent Web 2.0 with the pressure of the generation, is simple: we should eat moderate all the things we consume. This also applies to the Web 2.0 benefits you the advantages, the available data resources useful, but: take a good book in hand but also times and read an hour, sometimes turn off the phone, not everywhere login, but well consider whether enough not a social network and once again go to the movies. All of this takes one of the pressure that builds the fast company. As the trend to the coffee to go, will remove the trend of this speed again and society are again a bit more relaxed – at least I hope that

To the more relaxed can be also help to go for a classic mobile phone that is packed with all the features and functions and Twitter & co. supports. Switch off the helps of course also immensely!
