Thank you for commenting! 


By the way, here`s some words that can be used for this topic. I hope this will help you to absorb some words. 


Firstly, let`s examine the question itself. 





ex) A is -er than B. A はBより-。

__years ago= ~年前

ex) 50 years ago=50年前


Now, how do you say share your opinion? Well, it`s quite easy. We say ~をシェアする for sharing something in English. Opinion as you already know means 意見(いけん), so what will you share? Yes! 意見”を”シェアする,right?


This time 人々が彼等の意見をシェアしました.Those were constructive and very happy to take a look at. Hope to see you next time as well.

I found a quite good example of why I sometimes don`t think people today are luckier than the people in the past. 


My father was surfing the internet and he addressed me that he gets frustrated when it`s loading. It takes a few seconds to download,but wait. It`s just a few seconds. It`s not a big deal for me though it was for him. 


Come to think that it was much slower before but of course people at that time must have been content with the speed of it though it might have been quite slow for us nowadays. 


One thing we can learn from this is that we don`t actually know whether we can say we are happy just with some new technology and some sorts. People might gets frustrated even with some new ones like my father did ^ ^
