New York Magazine shed some light on the ongoing controversy and misunderstanding between generations when it comes to revealing everything in cyberspace in its recent article Say Everything. It claims sites like MySpace, Flickr and Facebook have contributed to the "greatest generation gap since Rock and Roll."
As younger people reveal their private lives on the Internet, the older generation looks on with alarm and misapprehension not seen since the early days of rock and roll. The future belongs to the uninhibited.
Not to join the chorus, but I have to agree. Not only do most 20-somethings and younger have accounts on TeamSugar, MySpace, Facebook, Flickr or Blogger, but many post saucy pictures and expose bits of their personalities and life they might otherwise not share. I don't think it's always a negative thing, I'm just not sure older generations will ever understand online expression and community sites. What do you think?
