23 Photos Showing the Struggles of People Born Before the Digital Era, and We Can’t Get Over How Innocent They Are

The world as we know it now with smartphones, tablets, social media, and the internet didn’t exist a little more than 50 years ago. Technology had major breakthroughs from the late 1950s to the late 1970s, and this is what we call the digital revolution. It’s not easy to keep up with technological progress, especially for those who were born early last century. These people need our help getting familiar with the new digital world, and sometimes it can be hilarious.
