24 hour news and information cycles elicit a strong sense of redundancy made more so by Twitter, Facebook and the like. I don't have a personal FB or Twitter account although I manage both for my company. I see much value in Twitter as it's a lightening fast way to get out news, PR, information, and now, photographs. It's short and doesn't hang around making it less likely to have the mind boggling entries FB users like to post, e.g. "Eggs for breakfast & now I'm washing my feet".
Between the photos of people's kids with food on their faces (not cute), ThrowBackThursday photos of 80's big hair, ugly prom attire, etc., it appears people have waaaayy too much time on their idle hands. One girl I've known since she was 5 yrs old, is now the mother of two adorable tow-headed girls identical to her own cute self. She posts incessantly with photo after photo of adorable mother-daughter ventures, crafts, excursions, tea parties. This is a sweet girl but her daughters, six and eight, pose as if they are models...you know, arched back, hand on hip. Six months ago, her home was burglarized, the thieves stole her computer and I feel her children are very exposed, IMHO.
Other people I know, mostly women now that I think of it, pose provocatively, post egregiously, and put stuff out there for anyone to see. And they use their real names!!! I know there are some privacy settings but FB is known for their ever changing modifications and who knows who is really seeing your "stuff"?
Guess I'll keep my inanities to myself...and my blog.
