I believe this chart tells more about the culture we live in today than it does about facebook.
Obviously, we live in world today where we embrace technology faster. My question is why? Is it because of the massive availability of technology? Is it a fundamental shift in how we think about technology?
As a youth pastor, I see the current teenage generation’s fingerprints all over this trend. I see the power and influence that the younger generation has over our world, culture, technology, and economy. Oestreicher hit the nail right on the head when he said, “One of the things I notice is that the fuel for the fast rise of the most recent technologies has come from youth (whereas the older technologies were forced to go through the slower progress of adult acceptance first), which says something about the leading role of youth culture in the world today.”
Thoughts? What is your reaction to these technology growth trends? Why is the world today embracing technology faster?
Out of curiosity, how many of you are one of 150 million facebook users?
I am one of the 150 million.
