A friend mentioned that you could write an entire paragraph about social media that no one would have understood 5 years ago.
I’ve got my Twitter posts tied to my blog postings, linked to LinkedIn and showing up on my Facebook wall. Technically my WordPress Blog posts are broadcast to Twitter and my Facebook timeline and LinkedIn, but not to Google +. Honestly, I’m not sure who is in my circles on Google + and whose circle I’m in. I’m not even sure I understand the concept of ‘circle’ the way Google has applied it to Google +. Instead of circles, I think they should use fractals. Isn’t social media, in some way, just chaos theory with pictures of kittens?
I think I have a social media disorder (SMD). That is different from Social Media Obsession (SMO), which has taken out a few of my friends these past years. I still love them, but I don’t really care if they LIKE – 100% cotton socks…
I don’t know about 10 years ago, but I can hardly understand it all now.
But I am a survivor. SMD will not stop me from reaching out 3, 4 or 5 times a week and using the internet to bug people. To bug people whom I have never met, except on the net. And I get bugged right back. And that’s communication in the 21st Century.
