Youngsters not happy about seniors going online

Posted on Tuesday, February 05 2008 @ 05:26:40 CET by

News.com.au reports people under 30 aren't too glad that older generations are moving in on the online world:
Increasingly, however, he and other young people are feeling uncomfortable about their elders encroaching on what many young adults and teenagers consider their technological space.

Long gone are the days when the average middle-aged adult did well to simply work a computer. Now adults have Gmail, upload videos on YouTube, and show off the latest hi-tech gadgets.

Young people have responded, as they always have, by searching out the latest way to stay ahead in the race for technological know-how and cool. They use Twitter, which allows blogging from one's mobile phone or BlackBerry, or Hulu.com, a site where they can download videos and TV programs. They customise their mobile phones with various faceplates and ringtones.

And sometimes, they find ways to exclude adults – using high-frequency ringtones that teenagers can hear but most adults cannot, for instance. Nowhere are the technological wars more apparent than on social networking sites, such as MySpace and Facebook, which went from being student-oriented to allowing adults outside the college ranks to join.
