Oh, boy, this might take a while…
I’m not trying to act like an old man or anything, but there are a lot of modern trends that are NOT doing it for me if you know what I mean…
Let’s see what modern trends people on AskReddit despise!
“”News” agencies writing articles about “all these people are saying X” when it’s just a few random people on twitter, and generally the trend of amplifying fringe theories, beliefs, conspiracies, etc.”
“I h**e those videos with a split screen and something interesting is happening on one half, while an ‘influencer’ is literally just watching on the other half.
I do not give a single f**k about the influencer. I just want to see the thing on the other side. You know, the thing worth reacting to.”
3. So annoying.
“The abundance of unskippable ads on videos.
I 100% guarantee I will actively try to not buy your product if you’re interrupting what little precious time I have to watch something.”
4. For real.
“All controls in a car being through a touch screen.
For driving safety I wanna keep my eyes on the road, and want to find controls (like window wipers, radio (OK in car audio podcast)) by touch.
With a touch screen I have to look to see if I am touching the right place on screen for the control I want.”
Everything is being turned into a monthly bill.
Pretty soon you’re going to have to subscribe to keep your artificial organs functioning.”
“Putting your whole life on social media.
If you want to ruin your life, look up family YouTube channels.
Didn’t even know that was a thing until recently.”
7. Messing people up.
“Social Media umbrella and what it’s doing to this and future generations.
Just off the top of my head:
Ignorant echo chambers
The desperation of attention or clout
the views/follows/friends obsession
I’m sure there is more…”
There’s no reason your 5 year old should have a public Instagram made for grown adults to comment heart eyes on. There’s no reason you should be teaching them to not smile in photos.
There’s no reason they should be experts at posing and dressing and whatever before the age of 9. It feels like so much damage on their self esteem.”
“The “something terrible is happening right now. Those people totally need someone to help them. I gotta get it on video!” trend.”
10. Enough of that.
“Everything being smart.
I don’t need my fridge and toaster and f**king door locks connected to the internet, especially if I have to get up to use the thing anyway.”
“Those stupid f**king reaction videos where someone is pointing at another video and nodding their head or over emphasizing their facial expressions.
It drives me nuts. How pathetic do you have to be?”
12. Lonely world.
“Lack of meaningful interactions.
Loss of the average attention span.
The feeling of loneliness and proper human interaction. The parasocial relationship problems rooted in the 21st-century social-media-centered society is a real threat that we’ll only be seeing its repercussions in a few years.”
