It’s kinda of funny. I remember getting into Twitter all those years ago. Loved it. I write TwittFilter and a few other programmes for analyzing twitter feeds and social graphs. I tried other socmed apps, including facebook, but never really got into them that much, but still, I was pretty deep. But in that last six months I realized, I just don’t care anymore. Sure I still look at twitter now and again, but I spend more time reading the news (newssnacker.com) then anything else. I have an account on Google+ and have looked at it perhaps 10 times total, yet I still get a new follower everyday. WTH?
So I do not tweet more then twice a week, mostly ignore facebook and we have already covered google+. So happened? I … just… dont … care. I think there is SocMed overload and I hit it a few months back and I also found I’m not as social as I used to be. I was hitting meetups once a week, now I do not remember the last meetup I went to that I spent more then a few min at. So yup, I’m becoming unsocial.
And that is how it should be I think.
If you are spending time on social media sites and doing more in social life in real life, then good deal. I would be concerned if people are spending time on socMed sites but not doing anything IRL.
Ok, not the big realization here, but just one of those things were I noting how SocMed sites and IRL should be connected. Thats a good thing.
