I'm with you tara. while the internet is a very large resource of information there way to many PEOPLE out there who use it to push there desires on others. Before this social media BS. we did not have so many so irate folks being fed half truths. The Ted Koppel's the Walter Cronkite's of the world are long gone, where they simply reported the days events without bias. I'd love to see the Facebooks the Twitters the George Soros all be shut down. When we have a woman who says she idolizes the leader of the training camp in the desert, who was training the kids to attack schools. Who is still a main spokes person for a popular movement there's some serious problems.I don't have social media accounts, this is the only public forum I have Joined. When I leave the house I turn down cell phone volume, when talking to family and friends, it's in person or by phone. We use the computer for school work and researching personal interests. When my kids are older it may change, I just think with kids and teens, I need to be careful. So I guess it will be subscriptions for the next few years at least. In saying all that I have enjoyed the photography here.
I thought I was the only one who walked into restaurants with my camera gear and maybe even a laptop checking out the shots of the day. But alas my wife is generaly not with me I often get my vacations at a last minute and she has a job where she has to give a month or more notice so I often go on photography adventures.I even bring my cameras into the restaurants when one trips
My kids are like that addy until they realize there at dads and I will not tolerate it. they think it's funny if they see they have a voice mail they know its from me no one but no one uses the phone in there generation. it's half the problem today they have no idea of to interact with one another.lol my brother and his gf text each other rather than talk and that is sitting in the same room!
@GBBUDD you will have to get an old fashioned phone for your kids, my middle boy has one so it takes a lot of effort to text with those push buttons. The best part is he gets plenty of exercise biking up the road to his friends.My kids are like that addy until they realize there at dads and I will not tolerate it. they think it's funny if they see they have a voice mail they know its from me no one but no one uses the phone in there generation. it's half the problem today they have no idea of to interact with one another.
I could try but my youngest is 22 so he'll just lol at the old man and break out his second smart phone.
I know what you mean, I tried to be strict and impose the no pc rule on my kids to keep them away from social media for as long as I could have, little did I know that they could go online on their XBoxI could try but my youngest is 22 so he'll just lol at the old man and break out his second smart phone.
