I think it’s clear form here that I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with social networking sites.
I do enjoy playing about with them when I first join, then I start to get annoyed over various things (flashing graphics, anyone?! lol).
I like linking up with people I know, re-discovering old friends, and even sometimes making new ones.. then I get annoyed because strange people want to be my ‘friend’, and I have no idea who they are!
And so on..
But, the main problem with them is that I simply get bored of them. I used to leave comments for friends, but now I find it easier to send emails – I’m writing to them because I have something I want to say to them, not because I want to get involved in a ‘popularity contest’. Etc..
It seems as if others feel the same, according to this article.
So how about you, are you still caught up in the ‘craze’, are you feeling the boredom, or did you stay well clear in the first place?
