The rise of social media has been beneficial to an endless amount of people, but not all. Learning technology could be very complicated especially for people who did not grow up in the generation where technology played a big role in their lives. Growing up in the generation I did, most of my friends are technologically friendly. However, there are several of my family members and acquaintances that have no idea how to work their devices. This article discussed 20 basic tech things older generations don’t understand such as terms and acronyms. I thought that it would be beneficial for others to read so they are more understanding and know that many people struggle with this.
Luckily, for people who have trouble understanding how to learn how to use their technology there are: videos, tutorials, and websites such as youtube that makes it easier for individuals to learn step-by-step how to work technology. I myself had every different kind of phone besides and iPhone and when I received my iPhone6 around Christmas time, I had no idea how to use it. I was checking out one day at work with my manager, and pulling up something so simple such as my calculator was so difficult for me to figure out. I wasn’t sure how anything worked on the phone in which I explained to my manager. However, he responded to me saying, “How could you not know how to use an iPhone when they are so user friendly?” I was a bit offended by this, and until this day I understand why it can be so hard for people to understand technology especially since they are just not used to it. All it takes is time and patience to get the hang of it. This is a video that shows tips and tricks how to use an iPhone6.
