    • My hypothesis is that they were the first generation to grow up with computers as part of everyday life. As children, they couldn’t question that which was so familiar to them. Dependency was built in at a very early age. Now they are old enough to question online surveillance and spying, but are reluctant to do anything serious about it. Can you imagine a well-connected young adult today giving up Facebook because it had manipulated their news feed as part of a psychological study? I can’t. Not many of them anyway.


      • That makes sense, but I wonder if they also care less about these kinds of things. At my school, I hear very few discussions about what’s going on in the news. Instead, I hear people talking about what drugs they’re doing, parties, sex, money, selfies, and other personal things.
