I read time and time again from ATS members criticising 'mindless drones' and 'millenials' addicted to social media, but I log on to ATS today and no less than 30 new threads in Board Business & Questions almost desperate because the site is having problems.
Obviously something went wrong, but so many threads asking essentially the same?
First thing I did was check MSM, realised there was no end of the world doom, and then chuckled to myself reading the almost desperate threads because our beloved ATS was having issues.
So, to the people who berate facebook users for using their chosen platform of social media, what about the ATS users who freaked out? Are they superior to FB users? Is your ATS addiction any less than the 20 year old 'liking' memes every 5 minutes?
Genuine question, because it seems that because we are 'anonymous' on ATS, many members seem to think this is some sort of platform which is more 'mature' and 'above' facebook users.
I see the same in other forum type social media, but cannot really discuss them as I believe it is against T&C's, but it is certainly the case, if you are a regular on any digital medium platform then you are as wrapped up in it all as any other social media user. You're just in denial.
All thoughts welcome.

They do this during job interviews.
I can't imagine how much it would happen on the job if I hired them.
The problem isn't really their fault either. They honestly don't know they're doing anything wrong. Kids are a product of their environment.
