Social Media and the Freakiness of Joe Tordy

I can confidently say that, having read Joe Tordys post and subsequent query to all of us, that my answer is yes. A freak you are, Joe, but the best kind of freak imaginable. With entirely too much time devoted to the merits of connectivity, we, as a generation, have willfully chosen fabricated reality over the natural environment which can disturb our senses. The cost of this, due to the collective mass we all are in relation to where we have chosen to place our original thoughts, is the loss of ownership rights for a generation of human ideas, whether original or unoriginal.

I've felt the same way as Joe described while perusing statuses and photos, all of which I would soon forget. It is a time waster, Facebook specifically, that is, which is better left in the past of human thought as opposed to the present, meaning you have used and understood why not to use it.
