We Printed Instead Of Using Social Media
Instead of digital social media, it was printed and hung on a wall. If you wanted to put up information for the world to see, you needed to stick the paper to the wall as hardcopy and hope people walking past saw it. You may still see this in community libraries or coffee shops, but printed ads were usually the best way to connect with strangers. But that doesn’t mean you were immune from trolls. People would still make unsolicited comments on your notice and frequently draw and scribble all over it. Even though it’s still effective to hang notices around for people to see, it doesn’t reach as many people as someone with thousands of followers on Instagram or Twitter (Chilli Printing).
