"Before you start using social networking and personal online
services, you have little idea of the convenience, just a hazy idea
that things might be better. The affirmation of social networking
can be exhilarating. You get addicted to it all. The computer is
your window on the world. Time to get outside that window. Social
networking isn't what it's cracked up to be.
"Example: there's a Facebook picture of a couple that I recently
met. They're at a rock concert. One of the comments stated simply
"Way better than the ex...." I'm glad the ex never logs in to this
page. Or is he in jail? An ax murderer? Simply a jerk? I don't
know. I just see the increasing banality."
