We use these tools and promote them to our friends because we can express ourselves and create networks but I always thought networks were the tools to reach friends and colleagues. More and more it seems like the network is just that, the network. Youâ€™re not reaching friends, youâ€™re reaching network units. You are not â€œfriendingâ€ people you want to know and interact with, youâ€™re â€œfriendingâ€ viewers. You are not â€œaâ€ media in the sense that you are your own means of distributing your thoughts and interests, you are â€œtheâ€ media, a money grabbing, self interested, profiteering, people using media like the ones you claimed you wanted to take down.
Great post from Patrick. I’m not saying more about it because everything is there. Go read it on his blog.
