The Internet has created a generation of fickle people who are only compelled to act when they see visuals. No visuals? No action.
It’s also created a generation of collectivist people, with the demons of all collectivist societies: suppression of the individual; groupthink; a tendency toward mob “justice” (online vigilantism).
Related to collectivism: artists cannot earn much of a living in this Internet age. Musicians are starving. The back-catalogue value of established musicians has been all but wiped out. Indie filmmaking? Good luck. (Though corporately-engineered artists… such as Justin Beiber… are doing okay.)
