Comment I don't believe the results. (Score 1) 174

I think people are underestimating how many they use, or not counting everything they use that fits with the spirit of the poll. SMS, Steam, Skype, and Slack, I'm already at four and I consider myself on the low end of the count compared to people that use social media or mobile apps that I avoid. I also don't use IRC as I suspect many here would. I'm really surprised that 5+ isn't the highest result.

I used to think this. I changed my mind when I starting thinking about all the tech we've developed as a result of our desire to fix those problems. I think our desire to help those who can't help themselves is ultimately a good evolutionary direction even though it can seem like a waste of resources in some cases.
