Wake up, social media users, we're crushing our creation

Just look at the numbers: YouTube is the third most visited website in the world, according to web monitor Alexa. Twitter, according to Nielsen Online, has grown 2,565 per cent in the past year alone, while Facebook announced it has surpassed 200 million users.

  1. I love that graphic Lori, but why is email Bacon? Oh, that is probably some social media application I know nothing about! The article is very good, too. It is interesting that with all the information and access coming at us we may just become normalized to it. Surprises and the little things don't have as much meaning as they used to, or as the author states "The irony is that as more people climb aboard, to tell the world their life stories in a photo gallery or in 140 characters or less, the romance and democracy begins to fade." Well, we certainly don't want that! ~Ginger
