    Dunno. Just seems that when you get so much inter-networking and inter-awareness it crosses some line that should not be crossed. How much can someone want to be intertwined with everyone else.

    The whole social networking things just seems to be getting pushed too far.

    IMO.
    ...I sure hope this is the real deal.

    I also do not get this. I guess there is something people find somehow appealing and this driver forces them to exporting their feelings and immediate thoughts to the whole planet.

    You certainly won't find me on Twitter. I have a Facebook page but I'm never there. I'm over it already. Thinking about dumping my MySpace page as well.

    Hah! These sites will do anything to get traffic. Seems like that is all anyone cares about these days is how many hits the site gets each month and what are your adsense earnings.

    it seems social networking rarely does what it says. real friends/partners stir up jealousy. of course that is the fault of those that become jealous. still, there is an integrity issue involved. employers find out what a person is like by searching and at times disregard that person for what is found. and companies, like the one for whom i work, use the email addresses provided to search out fraud and illegal activity.
    why one wouldnt leave their profile listed as private is beyond me. yet, we all want the chance to express our right to free speech, our chance to broadcast, and in the same breath ranting that privacy has been invaded.
    what is more interesting to me is when a person is actually the same in real life.

    Ditto. Its funny how now most employers will Google your name now as part of the hiring process. Just to see what you've been up to out there.

    Social networking is a social phenomenon. I started working in the web in 1996 and the fad was bulletin boards, facebook, myspace, etc, are just communities on steroids. It seems a lot of people are using them as tools to network themselves for work and creative endeavors but like others have stated many more are looking for pixelated companions.
