Today and Yesterday

What we have today wa s no diiferent from what we have in the past.

YES. Everything we have today was no different from what we have during the previous times. People from all over the world have been practicing social media shares like we do today. The difference only is the method of approach this media shares are taking place. For example, today we use facebook, twitter, google plus, personapaper, and the likes all uses the sharing method emposed during our medieval periods.

Although I wish to add another image to emphasize my article, I will site examples on how people before have practiced this.

SOCIAL SHARES:

Back then it was communication via scrolls and letters. Now it is all about posting.

LIKES:

Although the likes system was not properly introduced back then, but people then observed it in a more simplified way.

They cooperate more on the share to show that they like what the group thinks. In more previous years, they show they like the share by shouting (that was when the battle cry was introduced as well-it was said to boost the moral of those who fought back then) and if they dislike it they would immediately battle on and whoever would win will mark the decision.

THE DOWNSIDE

Well the down side of the new technologies and everything gadgets that we use everyday is that people tend to lose confidence in dealing with people right ahead. And the trend today is asking for friends via online making it a virtual world out there. Some people can't even stop to look at a road for a second while they are walking. They try to do things simultaniously making it hazardous and dangerous for him and to the other person who, in mischief, get involved if he gets caught in an accident.

THE UPS

It is all good. YES. The advancement we have today and what we are experiencing today are all good. They show that the world we have today are all moving forward. This also marks the innovation of the modern living we have. But also, please do remember that these things that we have now wouldn't even be possible without the things we have before.

All in all it is good to be sticking in at social medias but please do bear in mind that we still have a world outside to live on. World doesn't revolve only on the internet. Mingle with others. Talk to someone. Experience and live life. :) Because we only live once, we should live life to the fullest.

You have some interesting ideas here, but I think maybe you need to read up on what life was really like in the Middle Ages. Almost nobody was literate, so forget the scrolls and letters. Besides, paper was too expensive for most people. Literacy was reserved for men of privilege. As far as fights breaking out because people didn't agree, not so much I think. Most people were busy enough just trying to put food on the table. There may have been gossip, but nobody was going to stop work to pick a fight over it.
