I think we'll look back and realize many corporations falsely propagated good messages to the public. Many social concerns like police brutality, racism, cheating politicians, sexism, feminism, general discrimination, white power, etc...were given decisive attention in order for the news to stay relevant. The 2010's are arguably the first decade in which the most people ever had access to the internet and social media. The public wasn't paying for news media when it was so easily obtainable for free and we saw the the news media react in horrific ways to stay relevant. These issues always existed, but in order to stay relevant, the news media ramped up issues and fabricated division and segregation that wasn't always true. TV was dying and desperation showed.

However, despite that negative view, I do think the world going forward will improve. At least people, not the physical world. We might all melt and drown in so many years.

The decade of people disconnecting from each other while being under the illusion that they are more connected than ever.
isnt that just so true? I was watching collateral last night, and he said

LA, 17 million people. If this were a country, it'd be the fifth biggest economy in the world and nobody knows each other. I read about this guy, gets on the MTA here, dies. Six hours he's riding the subway before anybody notices his corpse doing laps around L.A., people on and off sitting next to him. Nobody notices.


such a realistic representation of the world we live in.

its quite sad how disconnected we these days, no-one really knows each other, the world is getting a lonelier place by the day tbh. Social media keeps people connected whilst also discouraging them from really bothering with each other, chances are most people don't bother really keeping in contact with people because "hey, doesnt matter, we are friends on facebook".There is no real consequence to not keeping in touch compared to years ago where people could literally disappear if you didnt keep in contact.

same with relationships, people are so quick to drop someone because temptation is only a click away, there is so much distrust around because of social media. Everyone is connected to everyone, there is no barriers. People can flirt with each other without even really admitting it. You dont have to physically pick up a phone or walk up to someone to speak to them. Liking someones picture would be called flirting now, Its all so passive.

some days, I think it would probably be the best thing for us as a species if some EMP wiped out our electronics. People would certainly start interacting with each other again and treat each other with value.

computers have been one of the greatest inventions of anybody's lifetime.......yet its possibly also one of the worst. Society is dying in many ways. Its really no secret why people are so unhappy in this day and age.

It's really sad. The less people interact in person, the less we see each other as people. It's way easier to be mean and nasty to people over the internet, as we've all seen with Twitter and stuff like that,

More then anything people will remember this decade as "The Beginning Of King Corbin's Reign"
Well played.

This will be known for Trump exposing politics for the clown show it is and the latter rise of the alt-right around Europe and other places.

For the internet getting worse due to news and commercial companies scraping the bottom of the barrel to get the most clicks.

PC culture/Industry and the resulting Anti PC culture/Industry.

Public mass shootings in America.

Climate change.

Look I can do a full list of errands and without having to say a single word to anyone.

1- I go to Sainsbury's for my weekly supermarket shopping and there are the self check-out tills. No questions asked I'm even working for the damn company scanning the items myself and packing them.

2 - Next I go to Boots same story

3 - And I need to post a letter to someone... Royal Mail... same story

4 - Next I'll pass by the library to fetch that book I reserved online. I go straight to the shelf...Scan the barcode and done.

5 - At night order a deliveroo and me and missus can have whatever we want from different food chains. Ah damn, I'll have to say to one word to the delivery guy: "Thanks mate!"

Yeah, we are more disconnected than ever, and it will only get worse.

The decade of egos and intolerance.
Not to mention a decade of useless politicians shafting their countries for personal gain - on a larger scale than usual, that is.

But we can all be thankful that this was the decade of celebrities forgetting to change their iCloud default passwords and giving us many gigabytes of filth to distract us from the void into which we're staring as a whole human race. :)

... not forgetting of course, the advances in HD streaming allowing for really crystal clear porn. #priorities

Probably as the decade of social media, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc, yeah some of these were around in the 2000s but the 2010s I feel was when they really started to dominate life culture, pretty sure it was the 2010s when very show on TV started promoting Twitter and hashtags.

problem is, people have less and less reason to interact with each other. Much of people's social anxiety probably boils down to lack of interaction. Like you say people don't even need to talk to workers on checkouts anymore. Those simple, small pieces of human interaction in everyday tasks are drying up. Its becoming increasingly abnormal to talk to people. I usually say "hello" to people when Im out and most of the time they just look at you like you are mentally ill.

Its probably a big reason why things like tinder have become so popular, people don't need to address their social issues but rather hide behind an app to meet people, its ideal, they dont even need to leave their house. The skill of learning to accept rejection is disappearing, tinder keeps it hidden from you, people have no idea how to approach someone in person, the concept is too terrifying, they want all of the reward and none of the risk. Again, approaching a person in a public place is becoming increasingly abnormal because no-one knows how to both do it and react to it.

one day it will probably end being like that "surrogates" movie where no-one leaves their homes except through the virtual reality of an android because people are both too terrified and too lazy to leave the house themselves.

people's laziness and desire for ease of use is isolating them from people, people dont even really physically interact with their friends and family anymore because of social media. Its really no mystery why loneliness is such a problem, people dont need to interact with people and when they do, they are so terrified of doing it that they try to avoid it. They just sit alone, looking into a phone at a edited version of someone's like wondering where they went wrong.

technology is amazing and has some really great advantages but it would be ignorant to ignore the clear disadvantages it is bringing upon people. Simple interaction is being lost.
