We are living in the information age, which is a grand privilege for most or all of us. Information at our finger tips. Soon enough we will see the extinction of our favourite newspaper. Is it good or bad?
While social media and the internet are useful, I think it will be sad if newspapers disappear - where will I find my sudoku fix? Also social interaction is very important and already some of our young ones are showing signs of a lack of social skills in 'real' life.
@BlossomSB, I share your sentiments. It is more about smart phones, games and a variety of gadgets. Gone were the days when kids would be more involved in outdoor activities than being buried for hours in a couch for instance playing video games or surfing the net.
It's mostly bad.
Hard copies are items that lend themselves to accountability and proof, while social media/internet lends itself to confusion and lack of accountability.

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
