“Instead of a single app to click, I’ve got a little folder of apps on my phone now. At my desk, I’ve got three tabs clogging up my tiny social sidebar monitor (remind me to tell you about this great little thing one day). I end up dropping in and out of them pretty much at random throughout the day. I never look to any of them when news breaks, which is telling.”
I'm one of the people who didn't go anywhere post Twitter and even the places I was before the melt down have slowed down considerably in how much is going on (these are private chat rooms). I've been offline more than on and it's been a really good thing for me. I've become convinced that the use of social media, overall, isn't very good for us in the long term.
