I am thinking that socail media has gone too far, and has removed some layers of privacy from our Real lives... And has added a ton of 'connections' that in some cases have more to do with the freinds of freinds, than anyone you realy know.. Back in the day before the internet, we had "BBS's " , which worked for small groups of freinds and those whom had an affinity for what we where doing. we could even restrict access tosome degree with group passwords and other means of identification authenticity.. Now? Its been replaced by a transparent, but somewhat deviod of functional speciality form, called social media... I kinda miss those days to some degree.. IT wasnt just any blow-joe idiot off the streets with his/her own modem either, you either knew enough to get into many of those sites, or you where not there, and unaware...

Ho well.. Socail media as it stands now is being turned into social exploitation , in many ways.. Not always a good thing... Sometimes good, but many times not... Which is why I dont have a Facebook account...

Maybe he has active accounts, just not in his own name.
Some people (Meeting boy on twitter for example) dare not reveal their identity as it could cost their job.

Makes sense.

After all, Dilbert's company is all rewarding incompetence while punishing competence.

A person being in face book all the time does not have time or the inclination to get or remain competent.

I forgot my password to my social media outlet with the word book in it for a week, I got an email from a friend asking if I was all right and that he was worried because I was inactive for a week.

I started a new account and had to convince the people on my friends list I was me, by having them email me and I would respond confirming I was who I claimed to be.

At the end of the day the only useful piece of technology I had was email, but I realized that I was assumed to be dead, kidnapped, or impersonating myself unless I was active on my social media outlet, but using email I managed to communicate with my friends just fine.

Has anyone else wondered what exactly it is that social media has done for us aside from separate your identity from the meat suit you wear in your alleged real life even further than it was before?
