The Internet Is Toxic

I feel like I've become jaded by the internet. As a whole. I feel like I've oversaturated myself with it and I've grown to progressively hate what it's become.
I can't go anywhere without a comment section being filled with hateful arguments, idiots, teenagers and pretty much every stereotype in the book.
I can't even come to 4chan, possibly the only tolerable anonymous website on the internet without it being spewed full of memes, bait posting, shit posting and just all around cuntery.
Reddit is another shit hole. Completely full of social and regressive leftists. The voting system is stupid and it's full of recycled pun trains and shitty jokes.
Social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are a cess pool of attention seekers, narcissist and egomaniacs. It's full of fake people trying to show how normal and happy they are. Only posting the highlights of their life. While hiding anything remotely bad or negative.
News websites are just a complete red flag.
I definitely feel like with the saturation, I've warped my own sense of reality. I look at things differently in the real world because of the sheer amount of time I've spent online. Not that it's anyone elses fault but mine.
I'm of the opinion since the iPhones inception in 2007 that it kind of doomed the internet as a thriving community. That might sound stupid but hear me out.
Think about it from 2007 and onwards. Smartphones were getting better. Tablets became a thing. Now think about it in 2016. Almost every single person you see in a civilised country has a smartphone or tablet. Whether it be an iPhone, or a Samsung, or what have you at least someone has one. Kids, teenagers, adults, even the very elderly.
Most of all who now have access to the internet to spew their garbage all over the place. I don't remember hating the internet this much nearly 10 years ago.
This is just how I've come to feel. I feel like maybe I should take some time away from my computer as a whole. I don't know.
