Are the Social Networks Ready to Implode?
I was reading a post at Mashable:
He also references GigiOm:
The fundamental nature (and utility) of social networks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_network hasn’t really changed. The platform-ization of social networks has led to the rise of social apps that are best described as time wasters. You can be fascinated by vampire bites and what not but in the end, there is a finite amount of time you can waste.
This is my comment:
Yawn is right. I’ve been saying for years now the so-called social networks are time wasters and misdirecting everyone away from developing their real blogs.
I compare the SN phenomena to bar-hopping. Today’s popular hangout will be yesterday’s flavour of the month.
Sooner or later the barflies are going to wake from their delerium and regret all those years wasted and realize their privacy has been raped and come back to haunt them.
Sad but true.
Whatever happened to common sense? Are the Social Networks Ready to Implode? What do you think?
