From what I’ve seen, most people vaguely agree that modern technology causes problems, ranging from reduced attention spans and self-esteem to a lack of interpersonal communication skills. The weird thing, though, is that no one likes to hear it criticized, especially if they’re in their twenties or younger. We are defensive and laugh at anything bad that is said on phones, social media, TikTok, etc.
That’s partly because it’s repetitive. The same criticisms of modern technology and the Internet are constantly repeated; normally this would be seen as a model that should be listened to. In this case, it is rather perceived as an annoyance, because it almost always comes from people older than us and the classic generational divide prevents us from taking it seriously.
