I think you raise some good questions here. I think what I like most about Facebook is that it captures a kind of history that won’t be told in history books. Have you ever considered how people’s posts can alter historical narratives? A family member of mine once printed out her timeline to add to a scrapbook and it really made me think about the platform differently.
The question about how or which social media platform we use when we get older is an interesting one. It made me think about the idea that people get more conservative as they get older. Will Facebook and Twitter be the conservative platforms?
