Nearly one in two Internet users say privacy and security concerns have now stopped them from doing basic things online such as posting to social networks, expressing opinions in forums or even buying things from websites, according to a new government survey released Friday.

The above coupled with the shortage of variety has changed how a lot of us use the internet.

The "new" has worn off, the economy (and the users) have less disposable cash, the trolls and SJWs have made it a mud pit, and yeah, that privacy, threat of identity theft, tracking and spying is a piece of it.

Plus there's too many sites, too many copycats, too many evil doers, too many of everything ... and add to that search engines which seem to have ideas of their own about what to present and HOW, a real nightmare is in the brewing.

The 40 and up set are weary of bad search results and all the other. The under 40 crowd seeks instant gratification and the easiest to find (they aren't taught to think for themselves any longer, nor do they have a clue that you can change your search parameters to drill down to what you're really after!).
