Are social networks…

1) Bill Gates’s nemesis?

2) The Hotel California?


3) Just a time sink you can map (and of course, waste more time doing so)?

Everything has its limits. Thousands of daily “friends” requests aren’t going to do you much good – those “requestees” will either try taking yet more of your time, or they’re making the request because you are desirable for whatever reason and their hope is the resulting association will make them so too. Not having the ability to fully extricate yourself from the situation doesn’t help matters.

I am quite surprised users are just waking up to these issues now.

Mark Cuban thinks the internet is just dead and boring, and blames the economy. But maybe it’s the users…dying of boredom, and attempted to alleviate what ails them through the virtual world.
