The Future: Children & YouTube
The future is an amazing place full of technology and many more. But, the future relies on our children and their consumption of the internet.
Children in this generation have many positive and negative impacts on the world around us. Firstly, Children all over the world constantly view Google for information or games. This provides knowledgeable adults for the future of the world. The negative is that children can not get enough of the internet and Google. Google has created an addictive site that children from the age 5 years old up to 18 years old, who use Google every day, can not stop going online. This is a negative because children are not getting outside enough, this can cause many body problems and addictions.
YouTube is one of Google’s most prized possessions. The amount of profit Google makes from YouTube is insane. So many children go on YouTube every single day, children watch their favorite YouTubers prance around and sing. Instead of learning about informational things such as “How Animals Act in Nature,” children are watching people playing videogames. The dream of becoming a famous movie star is no more, children dream about how life would be like as a YouTuber.
