It's not that social
Those cute, harmless, little lower case letters, t and f, leapt into global cyberspace this century and rocked our world. And frankly I am wondering where social ends and intrusion begins. Yesterday I was looking up a hotel on the web site Trip Advisor, and up pops the face of one of my “friends,” a co-worker I rarely see. “Amy has been here. Ask Amy about____.” Facebook has its good points but I find it just a little too creepy. Way too much personal info is out there. And twitter? “Follow us on twitter!” everyone is asked to do by various media sources. Why, I ask. It is getting to be a bit overstimulating.
