Our shared anxiety

Facebook. Twitter. Google+. LinkedIn. Blogs. RSS feeds.

Fatigue.

“What I want is to be creative, I said. I want the tools to serve me, not the other way around. I’m getting absolutely nothing significant done, but I’m supposedly “busy” all the time. And it’s all driven by a shared anxiety: if we don’t keep up, we’ll be left behind; if we don’t flock over here with the Crowd, we’ll lose our audience and no one will talk to us or listen to us anymore. We’re not so sure they’re listening now…maybe we’d better issue another Tweet or Post or Dent and make sure they’re there.”

  1. Amen to that.

    I also really hope that Google+ can take over and morph to something that can get rid of FB & maybe even twitter. And maybe even LinkedIn. One site to check in and hopefully do it faster/spend less time than on three different platforms. Perhaps unlikely, but I can dream.

  2. Ça devient effectivement étourdissant d’être en ligne, avec tous les choix de médias sociaux disponibles. J’ai de grands espoirs envers Google +. Sinon, je fais ma cheap et partage, à l’aide de HootSuite, la même information sur toutes mes plates-formes.
