Have you asked your parents how they met? Or your grandparents? Have you asked them what they would do when they hanged out with their friends and how they communicated with each other? If you have, I bet that they didn't mention facebook, twitter, skype, or whatsapp. They probably didn't even mention phones or internet. Your dad probably sent paper notes to your mom and instead of texting his friends, he actually went to their house, knocked, and asked them if they wanted to go play. This, of course, was more than a decade ago and everything has drastically changed in the world. Technology has improved and trends have changed over and over again. Now, we send a short whatsapp to ask a friend if they want to hang out, we tweet to let the whole world about anything interesting, we upload pictures to Instagram, and we call people through skype or viber. None of that existed ten or fifteen years ago. Your parents or grandparents probably still can't believe that video calls are possible. They are probably still surprised of all the technology advances that us, as teenagers, are so used to. None of that is new to us like it is to our parents.
