Letter44

I use Internet daily. Through email and Whats-app I maintain contact with my friends and family. I also use the Internet daily to look up information. Often I find recipes to cook.

If I compare my Internet usage with my friends it’s minimal. My friends are daily on Facebook and Twitter. I am not very active on social media. Because I’m less active I often get irritated when friends have a look on social media during a conversation or in the pub. While I realise that this is experienced as normal for many people.

My life without the Internet would be fine. I would go to the library more often to look up information and I would buy more cookbooks.
In my eyes, life would be more social, people sometimes live nearly half of their lives on the Internet (social media) and are therefore less involved in conversations and situations in the here & now.
