If it isn’t obvious, I don’t like social networking sites. I don’t use facebook or myspace or twitter or digg or delicious… I don’t even know what that one does. The fact that these things are prescribed additions to our lives without actually considering if they are “better” for our lives is a little unsettling. Sorry if I sound like a luddite, but I don’t even own a microwave.
What’s worse is people just assuming you’ve bought into all of it. I can’t tell you how many times people just assume I’m on facebook.
“Oh yes. Just add me on facebook. We can keep in touch.”
At which point I am forced to tell them. “Well. You see. The thing is…”
If I find it useful, I will use it. If I don’t, well, there is always RSS feeds.
