Communication during the 2000s:

  • Computers improved, but information was still not as easily accessible as today
  • Cell phones are advanced enough to become relevant
  • First social media platforms begin, including Facebook and Myspace
  • Still had to look information up in textbooks


“Technology is quite a bit more advanced than when I was in high school. Everything is much quicker and much more accessible. I think people are just a lot more impatient now and need to know everything right then and there.”

“Computers were maybe in half our classes, and it was only one or two. I don’t remember anyone really using them.”

“Communicating with classmates and friends isn’t too different today. We had phones (texting or calling), facebook, myspace was around as well, but Instagram was not.”

“Social media is pretty different today, I don’t remember people sharing every little detail of their lives with everyone.”
