Is Being Dependent on a Website Like Google or Facebook a Sign that You Are Illiterate?
I know many people who say or act as if they depend on websites like Google or Facebook… and they don’t seem to feel there is anything wrong with such dependency.
I also know parents who read bedtime stories to their children, and joke how they skip lines and abbreviate the story. Children who can read are, of course, more independent from their parents than children who are still “illiterate”.
If you depend on the recommendations of Google or Facebook, does that mean that you are unable to read without these websites? Are you still like the illiterate child, who still cannot read for themselves? I still know a lot of people like that.
