    Part of the problem is that internet users have tended to be too young to be worrying

    What are the differences between these two sentences with respect to meaning ?

    1. Part of the problem is that internet users have tended to be too young to be worrying about their mortality.

    2.
    Part of the problem is that internet users have tended to be too young to worry about their mortality.

    Thanks
