Thanks for sharing the SNL episode -- that was pretty funny. "It's that easy!"

I just got back from China and Hong Kong, and I was like everyone was glued to their smart phones, on their train, subway, restaurants, and even just walking on the streets.  I mean it was really stranged, everywhere you turned.  I wanted to know if at some point social media is going to be the world language.  LOL  Here is a little skit from SNL I thought would be funny.

That's a good one Lyndon. Thanks for sharing.


 

And here's one that sort of captures why I've hesitated to get involved with Twitter...

I have to wonder how many folks feel the same as you, Lyndon, but have been forced into opening up social accounts by their employers.


 

Well, if I find myself in that kind of situation, and they hold a (metaphorical) "gun" to my head, I guess I'll have to open a FB account ... hopefully, with the company's address.

But, actually, I haven't completely ruled out opening one anyway, if I can just retain some shred of privacy (fat chance, these days) and minimize the chances of FB tracking me on the Web.

I just hope I don't end up like this...

Perhaps everybody should use a "who cares?" filter. If they can't honestly answer something othre than "nobody" they ought not bother posting after all. I bet the petabytes of digital data saved from their cloud server destiny would tally up pretty quickly!


 

I have to say that my own "who cares?" filter has been functioning and has kept me from even having a FB or Twitter account. Maybe one of these days these will become as essential as the Internet itself ... but right now, I keep expecting them to fizzle and become replaced by the next New Thing fad. I maintain at least a half-dozen blogs, plus moderating a rather active discussion list. Seems like FB, Twitter, Linkedin would just add more clutter to my cyberlife.

@kq4ym, picture how people behave on competitive reality tv shows and that's how we'll all be acting in a generation -- like we're in a nasty free for all where the loudest most obnoxious and fake person usually wins.

It would be interesting to see if the use of social media changes one's personality or the personality is attracted to the increased use of social media.

I suspect the mere use of media will graually change one's personality into a bit more narcisim. How that might affect society in general over a generation will be interesting to see.
