What's your social network

Hey Facebook get your Twitter out of Myspace. You are not Linked In to me, but can you please check out my Playlist? (Just to name a few)  Are you a Social Network junkie?  

Social networks seem to be some peoples curse and a guilty pleasure for others.  The truth is the surgent of the social network seems to be the path to the death of the e-mail.  More importantly, I wonder if it's the path to the demise of human contact.  Is this an aide to those of us with the need to express narcissism?  Do I really need to know that the guy next to you on your flight smells like onions? No.  Do you really want to know 25 things about me?...probably not.  

So what's the point of all this technology?  Well, aside from being a good way to waste some time, it can be a very good way to reconnect with old friends, classmates, employers. What a way to get a birds eye view into the life of someone else.  They can also be fantastic tools to help you get a new job or for a writer to get ideas to write about.  

Here is a good thing; Apparently today, Demi Moore called police after she saw a tweet on Twitter from a person who was about to commit suicide.  Wow technology!

Until next time, when we can chit-chat again!
