But is that really what’s bothering people? In the aforementioned self-correcting way, I think criticism is warranted. Thoughts that refine and improve social networking can only help. But for those that aim to impede social networking, or even to have away with it altogether, I invite some perspective. Facebook, Twitter, these are only the predecessors to the unified electronic social networks in the days to come. In a few short years the lion’s share of young people have jumped onboard wholeheartedly. It’s a social landscape upon which society is both playing and working with great success, and absence from it only serves to exclude you from the modern dialogue.
Do you miss the old days when you understood the ways we interacted more easily? Are you secretly hoping for an end to social networks?
