Back in the late '90s and early 2000s, snagging concert tickets didn't break the bank. But ticket prices have now skyrocketed, often starting at $100.

Numerous YouTube families have evolved beyond cringe-worthy content. A Youtuber mentions that she does not like the YouTube families.

Another user says there is no such privacy left, and it also affects children's development.
