for me it is non-negotiable :naughty: ...they are called PROGRAMS...and they are installed in "program files"...(zoom and other new apps...sorry programs...they are installed differently and "hidden" as programs of Android...

Going back to the main topic...only 30 years here....I hate the cell phone (a lot)....you write to everyone...but you don't TALK to anyone in a serious way....for me it's either face to face or by phone. (mail only for procedures, and similar things)
even the PC (although very powerful, not mine, I mean in general) people see it as "old", heavy, (very powerful, but not very practical)
... they prefer to make a video with their cell phone and quickly upload it to their favorite social network while walking down the street... before having a great tool such as a PC. (on a stationary desk)

I grew up being the generation that saw the introduction of computers. I started with a ZX81 and today have a Note 4, smaller thinner and more power than an early computer could dream of being. In comparison, today's phones are in the realms of science fiction. I have Facebook which I generally visit in the evening if I have time. My family is all over the world and it is a great way to stay in contact with pictures and what's happening and as it is instant, those who are 1000's of miles away it is possible to have a conversation in real time with more than one person unlike the phone that cannot share content. I also use Whatsapp a lot.https://gbapps.net Again it is possible to send pictures and messages and with whatsapp, messages that can be as long as an email. Reading between the lines, this is more about the size of the keyboard that anything else. Email can be just as instant if you happen to be sat at your computer. Before Whatsapp, I had very long instant email conversations with my cousin in America. Why is everyone here so hooked on email. Why not go back to writing a letter, a photo or two enclosed..? Letters became email, email became Whatsapp or Facebook. Seems odd that people jump happily from letters to email and then stall at the next generation of communication. As for teenagers walking around head down, what were you doing at the same age that was annoying the crap out of the senior generation..... :lol:

Matt

I used WhatsApp a lot but since I found out that WhatsApp and Instagram were bought by Facebook, I have stopped using WhatsApp. :hand: :doh:


Sorry for the late response, Matt mentions abandoning WhatsApp after Facebook acquired it. Does he find Facebook itself acceptable for staying connected with family?
