No future generation is ever gonna grow up to be stable until there’s a blanket ban on under 18s being able to access snapchat/insta and any other social media shit like this

Talented? Lol. No. Vine was a cool app and had talented people. This app is a bunch of Lip syncing bullshit.

Yeah. We should make sure our youth dont have access to the most common form of expression and communication, on which the planet's future will be based.

The planets future will be based on apps like Snapchat & TikTok? Can you explain your logic?

Are there people who dont know that social media and online networking is the future?

I wasn’t talking about online networking or social media on the whole, so you’re adding your own narrative. I was talking about specific apps that will be no more in a decade. Snapchat won’t exist in 2030. Insta will but it will largely be used by businesses, though it’ll always have a fan base with hipsters on their holidays too. TikTok will likely not exist in 2025, it’s lifespan potential is even shorter than Snapchat

This. These are all just different forms of communication. They all have their pluses and minuses. 

Socrates thought that the written word would lead to the end of memory and that one could only truly convey an idea in face to face speech. Pretty much every human on earth can see the fallacy of that argument now, but back then it probably seemed pretty reasonable.

Again, totally running with a point I hadn’t even suggested. Online communication and expression is a vital form of lifestyle going forwards, obviously. Facebook & YouTube being the two obvious online spaces that will continue long after we’re all gone  

The specific apps I mentioned will die in their current forms, also obviously. Just like Bebo, MySpace and all that stuff died. They’re short term apps designed to cater to ADHD generation. TikTok already rebranded and will fail long term, Snapchat will have to reimagine itself in the next five years if it wants to continue 

By all means keep disagreeing amongst yourselves on a point I never made though

You said:

“No future generation is ever gonna grow up to be stable until there’s a blanket ban on under 18s being able to access snapchat/insta and *any other social media shit like this*.”

Then you tried to backpedal your statement to only include certain specific apps. Whatever. It’s all the same shit, dude. Will some forms persist while others die out? Of course. Just like writing letters and using the phone are dying out. It’s just that now these tools are being produced, implemented, and replaced at a much greater speed. Either way, making blanket judgements like your original statement is bad cause it’s mostly incorrect.

Yeah except where you said "any other social media shit" but even if we pretended that there was some Dreville79 approved social media list that was excluded from your myopic statement...

You're still wrong as fuck. We let kids fingerpaint but we don't think they're always going to be doing that. They are learning to express themselves in a medium that is appropriate for their age and skill level. These kids can't code... but they can make some interesting videos and posts using these apps.

And that's just on the artistic side... as for the business side, you're acting like there is no value in learning how to engage an audience on an app that is hot right now,  but one day might not be? You betray that you know very little about social media. Knowing how to adapt to different platforms and observe trends are the most critical skills in marketing.

Now would be a good time to go with, "Ya know what? Admittedly, I know very little on the subject. You make good points."

Explain to me how TikTok is going to work in a conference call

I work with a young lad who pretty much exclusively uses Snapchat to talk with his friends. There’s absolutely room for a form of communication where you can say shit that people can’t reproduce (unless they’re fucking weird and screen capture it). It’s kind of like telling your boy you fingered Jessica at the party then denying it, only without actually having to talk to people.

Disclaimer. I don’t use social media other than watching YouTube videos of short guys attacking their wife while she defends herself with a taser and of course talking to you queers on the OG.

I don’t necessarily disagree with you, but the landscape is drastically changing. Zuckerberg used to communicate with others sitting right next to him using Instant Messenger instead of talking. So there might be a day when a conference call becomes a group chat type of thing. Who knows?
