Internet changed the culture, not the economy
It has revolutionised culture by allowing anyone to create and share content within a matter of seconds!
Hope you all are doing good. I came across this line “The thing the internet changed the most was culture, not the economy” on a YouTube comment section and it stuck with me. Let's talk about how the internet has totally messed with our culture. This might be an exaggeration, but it did have an effect.
Back in the day, you had to suck up to big publishers, TV networks, and record labels to get your stuff out there. But now, thanks to the internet, even your grandma's cat can have a shot at going viral. From banking to baking, (IYKWIM) the internet has it all!
Social Media platforms have made it so easy to create and share your own content, you could do it in your sleep. And let's be real, some of the stuff out there is wild. From dance challenges to online art communities, the internet has given us some pretty awesome and not-so-cool trends.
But it's not just about the weird and wacky. The internet has also made it easier for us to connect with people who share our interests and to discover new and exciting things. So, if you're into something obscure like beekeeping, you can bet there's a whole online community out there for you.
And let's not forget about how we consume culture now. No more hoarding DVDs and CDs - we've got streaming services like Netflix and Spotify to fill our every need. And they've given us some pretty epic TV shows and movies that are designed to be binged in one sitting.
So, there you have it - the internet has turned our culture upside down and we have a love-hate relationship with it. Who knows what's next? Maybe next we'll all be creating our own virtual worlds and living in them forever. Okay, maybe not. But, isn’t that already happening? You never know until it goes viral!
