Social change exploded as fast as the internet, no wonder so many people aren't able to adapt.

Within 4-5 years whatever was acceptable is now passé and folk are left wrong footed by potential cultural landmines everywhere.

Comic books and cartoons have been priming the pumps for the social change well before the internet, people just didn't absorb the messages

There was plenty of research on web use being done 20 years ago.

This added insight into crowd thought processes and behaviors.

Only roughly 5% of the entire contingent of people present on the web contributed about 90% of the content.

Considering that when something as different as the internet cmes along the exact number of entheusiastic participants and their ways of using it are varied according to the nvelty factors, that proportion is probably closer now to the pareto distribution.

The web isn't really as important to most people's lives as many of the newbies and web addicted may believe, I believe.

As an former amateur radio station operator, I have has a considerable off and on presence here since about 1996 and so I have a fair understanding how sociality at distance works.
