People Are Sharing The “Less Obvious Things” They Miss About Life Before The Internet

Life before the internet was obviously much different than it is now.

Before the internet there was no GPS to get around, it was more work to keep in touch with people, and all of the devices in your home weren’t dependent on having a good wifi connection. 

But what about all the less obvious stuff about pre-internet life? Life without the internet or a smartphone was much simpler and less stressful. Yeah, we didn’t know as much or have access to as much information as we do now, but that’s not always a bad thing.

Did we all really need to know who bean dad is, all of Chrissy Teigan’s life mistakes, and our Aunt’s conspiracy theories? Maybe not. 

People on Reddit are sharing all the less obvious things about pre-internet life that they really miss.
