The Emperor Has No Clothes: social networking kind of sucks

So you might have noticed that I am still hanging around on here, and posting. Actually, at this point I might be doing half of the posting to this community. And it is not just because I am bored and like attention or whatever. Well, not "just because".

To be honest, I don't really like social networking. It can be useful sometimes, but I've noticed it can get dragged down into such total banality and triteness and spam and dumb stuff that on the whole, it was a net negative for me. I've deactivated my Facebook twice this year, and after the first time, I noticed that its claws were much less deeply into me. I am currently deactivated on there.

The thing is, I talk to a lot of people who say that they don't like Facebook but they use it because other people use it. So we are stuck using something we don't really like because we think its the only way to communicate. So I just wanna say that we don't have to stick with something we don't like.
