Sometimes I think people my age are lucky. Why you ask? We grew up with technology and more importantly with how quickly technology changes. We are much quicker to adapt to these things than say someone twenty years older.
Recently though, I have noticed points in life where I am old and no amount of adapting will ever put me on the same level as kids a lot younger than me. Social Networking sites. I belong to myspace and facebook, but I really have no use for them. Sometimes it is cool to find some person from high school that I have not heard from in years, but other than that, what use do they have?
I cannot understand the need for people to add as many people as possible, having thousands of friends, and yet not actually knowing any of them. This is not me being critical, this is me being honest. I do not think badly about them. If it were something I had time to do, I probably would, but honestly I can not see why.
It is funny because as I sit here writing this, I hope people will comment with their opinions, yet I think it is weird when I see someone’s myspace bulletin that says PC4PC…by the way, I had to wikipedia that one to figure what these people meant.
Maybe the thing I find weird about the whole phenomenon happens to be that ten years ago if you told someone you had thousands of online friends, people would think oddly of you. This is now considered normal. It fascinates me.
If there was ever a point to any of this, I have no clue what it is or was.
