Are you the Grand High Master of Interneting? Or do you need help Googling? Are you all online, all the time? Or will someone have to pry your VHS tapes and audio cassettes from your cold, dead fingers?
Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Tumblr, Google+…and probably a few more I can’t remember.
What is your favorite browser?
What’s a browser?
Internet Explorer, I guess.
Google Chrome or Firefox.
How do you listen to music?
I have tapes and cds, or I listen to the radio. Back in my day, we sang if we wanted music!
I listen to the radio or cds. I also get music channels through my satellite or cable company.
Free Amazon, Pandora or Spotify accounts, or iTunes.
Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, or iTunes. I have at least 1 paid account.
What’s your favorite meme?
What’s a meme?
Something with a cat?
Man shakes fist at cloud, from the Simpsons. An oldie, but a goody.
Salt Bae, Tiny Trump, Babadook, cracking open a cold one with the boys, chicken SpongeBob, blinking guy. There’s a meme for every situation, and asking me to choose one is like asking me which body part I don’t want to lose.
How easy is it to build a website?
I don’t know what you just said.
I think it’s pretty hard.
I wish I knew how to code. I need to take some classes.
I know how at least one coding language, and plan to learn more.
You do email. You maybe even can use a search engine like Google, but anything more in depth than that warrants a call to the grand kids.
But maybe that’s all just part of your plan to keep in touch with yourgrand kids. You sly fox.
You live in the physical world, and so does your media. You get your movies, books, and music through traditional channels, and aren't looking to mess up a good thing. However, there is an entire world of media just barely outside of your grasp. If you could learn just a teeny tiny bit about navigating the Internet and streaming services (like Netflix, Spotify, and Amazon), you could access way more media for way less money than you think.
You know a thing or two, and can use most sites and programs as long as they are user friendly. Social media, YouTube and Google searches are your main uses, but if someone starts talking about servers or processing speeds, you panic a little. Don’t worry; millions of people use the Internet everyday without ever needing to learn about the mysterious inner workings of the web.
You straddle the line between two generations and two worlds: traditional physical media and digital streaming outlets. Your parents probably don't have much to do with the Internet, and your kids use the Internet for everything, and don't remember what things were like pre-Internet.
You do your shopping online. You watch tv online. You play games online. You Google before you ask anyone anything. Maybe you even dabble with programs like Photoshop or run your own blog. You’re get around online better than the majority and learn new skills quickly.
You could easily learn enough to be a web developer, an IT support person, or at least an Internet guru. You know how to learn what you want to learn online, and the sky is the limit!
You are the person everyone in your family calls for IT help and advice when purchasing computers or software. You run websites, learn HTML, Ruby and Java for fun, and make your grandma uncomfortable with words like “servers” and “processing speed.” You probably spend more time gaming than any other activity, and are in touch with up-to-the minute internet trends.
Congratulations, you win the Internet!
