Are you burnt out? Has the political crap and every other thing just making you want to tune out? Is it media overload?
Hey look at this! Read this. Listen to this?
Seems like we are feeding more and more into that online world where we act, react and create content. But who is curating it?
I look at my own online persona and wonder, photos, words, posts, videos… can I even figure out where I am in the online tapistry? Who do we create these masterpieces for? Friends, family, lovers, haters? Who is watching?
We used to talk about TV as having 300 channels with nothing on. Where are we now? More content and people vying for your time more so than ever before. We are the product. We create it and we are sold.
This weekend I will be at my reunion. No doubt, we will be tweeting; facebooking, instagraming, snapchatting and more. And it will be fun, and the moment will last as a moment in time. Facebook will remind us in a year or 5 years that we were there. They will show us photos.
But so much content. We are snapping moments and letting them be cast to the wind. 24 hours of a story, then gone forever. The trend is living in the now.
I don’t know if that is so great, because you have to examine your life. It’s hard to know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been.
I want to remember the people I love, as we have been, and as we are. Online is a slice of life. Good or bad, it’s at least moments to share. And I’m glad to be able to do so.
