"It seems that a huge segment of the world's population has gone Twitter and Facebook crazy. People are busy updating their statuses, sending each other links, and trying to see how many "friends" and "followers" they can get. We are becoming social "broadcasters", constantly bombarding our "friends" with 140 character chunks of information. In reality, these social networks are all about making "ME" feel good about myself, tricking us into thinking that people care about what we say … or maybe they really do care?

"While sociologists are studying the effects of this social network phenomenon and what it means for society, there's no doubt that social networks are big, really big! Not to be left out of the bit "ME" craze, the upcoming Ubuntu 10.04 release will include the "MeMenu." The MeMenu will be your one-stop spot for sending out all your social media broadcasts right from within Ubuntu."
