Do you still use your social networks the way you did a year ago?
While chatting with my old friend Eliza on Gchat I realized just how lazy I’ve become about my social networking (not blogging).
I find myself unwilling to do anything on a social network that requires more effort than writing about 120 characters, pasting a link, or clicking some version of a like button. If it takes more effort than that the odds are that I’m not doing it.
I rarely post photos.
- Play games
- Like companies
- Spam my friends to get free garbage
- Use Facebook chat

I’m at a point where I do quick glances at my feeds for less than a minute. If nothing jumps out, I’m gone.
Maybe I’m a bit jaded. Maybe I’d just rather spend my Internet time reading or writing. I’m not sure. All I know is that my social media usage has been changing.
Am I alone in this, or has the social network lost its luster?
