Woe of social networking sites

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Social networking sites, forums, discussion boards, blogs, messengers, emails - these are just some of the many ways to connect to people across the globe.

They've changed the way many of us lived. I don't feel the day is complete without checking my gmail, yahoomail, twitter, facebook, multiply, blogspot, skype, ym (the list goes on) accounts. But sometimes, they can be stressful because they demand so much of our time.

Last year, when I still didn't have a full-time job and I only had the part-time work tutoring Japanese people online at night, I had all the time to update this blog, connect to other bloggers, check my emails, respond to almost every comment and messages in my chat box, acknowledge all requests... I enjoyed everything.

I get so lazy responding to every comment, every request... it takes so much of my time.

Since I started FaceBook last February, I got hooked with its accompanying games, quizzes and other applications, as well as connecting to other people in my contact list.

Now, I am tired with it as well. I realize I have more things to do than check all my online accounts. I want to break-free from my addiction to it.

I hope to be able to update this blog regularly and hopefully create a new one. I keep saying these days and I hate myself for repeating my self every time but not being able to do what I say.
