Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
While checking my feed I bumped in this quite interesting reading, and thought I'd share https://curlybracket.net/2022/03/31/internet-kids.html
An excerpt:
A 12 year old girl imagines the internet like a second, intangible, planet where Google, Wikipedia, Facebook, Ebay, or H&M are continents that one enters into.

Copied from the article:
The 15 year old boy had different ambitions. He told me he would change:

"the age of access to the internet. More and more younger people access the internet ; especially with TikTok there is a recommendation algorithm that can influcence young people a lot. And influencing young people should be avoided but the internet does it too much. And that can be negative. If you don‘t yet have a critical spirit, and you watch certain videos you cannot yet moderate your stance. It can influence you a lot. There are so many things that have become indispensable and that happen on the internet and we have become dependent. What happens if one day it doesn‘t work anymore? If we connect more and more things to the net, that‘s not a good thing."

There's still hope folks.
