It seems that as of late, blogging and Twitter are turning into a ghost town. A lot of my favorites have hung up their keyboards in favor of REAL interaction with REAL people in REAL life.
But as I contemplated giving up that which I love so dearly, I thought of all of the good times...
Without social networking, how would I randomly say something in less than 140 characters and then have people I met one time two years ago comment on it?
Without social networking, how could I randomly know every single detail about that one guy that I went to high school with but was three years below me and I always forget his name?
Without social networking, how could I possibly know "Which Sex and the City You Would Be"? Or your Twittascope? Or what mood you are in? Drunk? Haha that totally sounds like you! I think. I don't really know you but you sent me a friend request on Myspace and you had one of those weird angle pictures that make girls look cute so I added you.
Without social networking, how can I keep up on the everyday workings of random strangers' lives? How can I leave witty comments about their updates? How can I track my blog traffic and feel like a better person because I got 20 comments?
You want me to give up social networking?
