What have I become??

Well, I haven’t written forever! I have not been feeling very creative lately. But I HAVE been following current events, etc., and now have joined the ranks of those addicted to social networking sites….in fact, for awhile, I was so addicted to Mafia Wars on Facebook that it was all I was doing for 16 hours a day (no, not really, but you get the idea….).

Then I just got really sick of Facebook and didn’t go on it for months. During that time, the longer I stayed away, the more phobic I got about trying to get back on it again. I figured it would be overwhelming. Well, this past month I did get on it again, and it IS overwhelming, and they of course have changed things….but, I am going to use it in moderation.

Twitter is another story. I am on that as an inside joke, mostly with myself :). I find it absolutely useless and silly. And God help us if that’s a news source for people! But, anyway, I’m on that occasionally, writing some twaddle for some reason or another.

But it’s crazy. Social networking is totally out of control. People are forming backlash groups. What would happen if we just picked up this new invention called the TELEPHONE???? And actually talked to real friends?

Calling to talk to someone is 9 times out 10 faster, more direct, and to the point, than texting, Facebooking, Twittering, emailing, etc.

But then it’s not really cool, is it?

However, when your 90 year old grandma is on Facebook, and you are getting friend requests from friends’ parents, the thing is not cool anymore anyway. I thought that when my generation (GenX) started joining Facebook in droves that we were all too old for that. Little did I know. But I do know that once Facebook becomes as non-controversial as Elvis did years after his debut, and that once your parents start loving using it just like how their parents started to love Elvis, well, it’s just not cutting edge or cool or rebellious or any of those things anymore….maybe going back to a pen and paper, or a telephone, or, if we still can, having a real conversation in person, will become the “New trendy way to socially network…” I think that would be a good idea!
