The "me" that is represented on these platforms is not a true representation - it's shaded in particular and confusing ways. I find it dangerous lately - I sort of feel like I'm losing the inner, private "me" to the public one that you get when you google (err... live search) "Marc Sirkin."
- I share things with strangers that I don't even tell my good friends about. That's odd isn't it?
- I connect with people who I'd otherwise never be "friends" with under any other circumstance (this is both good, and bad I think).
- I find myself getting wrapped up in following people who clearly have nothing going on, or so much that it's impossible to catch up with them. I think that's what I've become myself - hard to catch and impossible to know.
I am even starting to believe that regular, normal people manage their lives MOSTLY in private! Could that be?
