The online life

  Isn't it kind of passe that one wants to spend the whole life on the Internet these days- Facebook, Twitter, and the other army of social networking sites that get updated every second by people. And guess what, people lap it up too.
 
    I don't understand the way people think their lives are historical, that they share every single moment of it; most of them useless updates to be frank. What, are they waiting for some historian to look up their electronic diary?

   Well, I guess it's the will to communicate.

    I like the way people present a specific though, opinion or idea in the form of a tweet or a blog post, as long as its sane enough to be read. That said, I have read some wonderful things on the net as well as some bad things. It all, comes down to the writing.

   Finally, I hope this ain't something hat hard-hitting. No, I haven't intended it to be. Just the fuelled ramblings of a man.

  1. interesting ramblings i must say :P
    even i cant understand the point of people becoming so addicted to FB and twitter. but then its an ADDICTION :P i had an FB account once, got bored, quit :P i am thinking of activating it back though, it helps to promote blog.
    but i think blogs are different and whatever blogs i have visited till now(which are many :P) i have always found something interesting to read.
    and true, it all comes down to the writing style :P

    1. Thanks! yes, I too don't see Facebook and minute-to-minute posting coming into my life any soon. Although Twitter got me addicted and I'm only removing the bug now.
      Yeah, no one can beat the medium of blogging.

  6. I do have to make a special effort to stay connected to the real world, real people as I enjoy blogs, movies, plays and books. That's where I discover ideas and thoughts - some good, uplifting, unique and some not. As for fb, being away from family I really enjoyed it for a while - felt good to be reconnected. Now my visits have started tapering off. I don't think they will die out completely though.

  8. Hello! I love your blog! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

    I just saw a news clip today where a journalist was in Havana and speaking to teenagers, how the kids talked about communicating more by sitting at a cafe and talking, more so than via FB or blogging. A good thing in my opinion. :)
