Bugroff Welcome To The AntiSocial

I found this image and site mentioned on TheGlobalGeekPodcast blog and thought it was so hilarious, that I would share it here as well. It’s interesting that I just read a blog post over at ChrisBrogan.com that discussed the overall feeling that social media was nothing but a waste of time. Then, I took a visit to Michael Baileys site and checked out his post, showing off his ability to disconnect himself from MySpace and Facebook.

I smell a battle of all battles brewing within the interwebs. Social vs AntiSocial. Wisdom of crowds vs Wisdom of one. A realization that, just by having an account on all of these services that appear to be a boon for companies is simply not enough. Although you try and try to garner friendships online, nothing compares to a real-world friendship/relationship. Using Twitter and other social outlets becomes a fruitless attempt of being heard as you find out no one is listening because your’re seemingly not important enough.

Let me know what you think.

  1. Uhm – yeah.

    If you ever want to stand out in a group, just do what everyone else isn’t doing.

    Or, looking at this another way, and the real (only) reason I dropped out, is because I want to regain a portion of my life.

  2. A quote I remembered that applies to many Facebook and MySpace lovers:

    “Just remember you’re unique… just like everyone else.”

    I joined most of those social networks, but the novelty wore off after a few weeks when I got sick of being given virtual beers or non-stop pokes.

    Real life friends are the best. So is real life beer for that matter!

  3. I almost feel stuck in social networks at times. I have a BUNCH of friends on myspace that I haven’t talked to in years and if I were to delete my MySpace account I wouldn’t talk to for many more years.

    So if I want to stay in contact I’m stuck.

  4. Because of my lack of real-world friends, I don’t know if I can maximize the value of social networks. I’m on Facebook but because I don’t know anyone on Facebook, it’s like a moot point.
