Potentially millions of Facebook users don’t realise they are on the internet when they use the site.

New research by the website Quartz goes some way to confirming a three-year-old study that showed people in south-east Asia were more likely to claim to be Facebook-users than internet-users.

That research from Helani Galpaya in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Burma, saw her then boss at the LIRNEasia thinktank remark: “It seemed that in their minds, the internet did not exist; only Facebook.”

Quartz tried to replicate the phenomenon of Facebook members in emerging market countries not associating the site with the internet by commissioning surveys in Nigeria and Indonesia.

The research suggested 11 per cent of Indonesians and nine per cent of Nigerians say they are active on Facebook, but don’t use the internet.

In all fairness they were from Indonesia and Nigeria, and most likely haven't a clue about a lot of other things either.

Yes, and none of that is rocket science by a long shot.

It gets worse

one element dropped out of the school system about 30 years ago .

Teaching people to think it out .

Calculators were first sign .

ask one person under 25 a math problem .

see that hesitation in their face ?

next was almost 1/5th of all media broadcasting ,
is dedicated to commercials .

believe in this : When your Image matters more to you ,
then anything else ,,,
you're creativity and thoughts become focused at creating
you're own avatar , and little more then that .

The strive to learn and discover is derailed toward
self image .

Thank commercialism for the faults .

Dumb ?\

Studies show average Finnish intelligence declining since 1997

“The decline in the average IQ has been detected in several Nordic countries, Australia, Britain, the United States and the Netherlands,” added Helsinki University assistant professor Markus Jokela.

Jokela stressed that the fall in average intelligence was not dramatic, but was moderate at the level of the wider population.

Researchers have so far not been able settle on a clear explanation for the fall off in intelligence gains. They have considered factors such as lifestyle, health status and culture.
