I got three invitations for the new Google+ but I declined them all. I don't need to join another black hole that will suck the life out of me. Too much time is already wasted on social networks that would be better spent on going out and getting some fresh air. Google is also taking over the world invading our lives and this is just something new in Google's evil plan to know every single thought & move we all make.
Many years ago I practically lived on Myspace, yes it still exists, and it devastated me when the root of all evil known as Facebook lured away all my friends. Twitter seems to be more my style and I much prefer it to talk to friends.
The stupidity that exists on Twitter is utterly fascinating making me realize that I'm not the crazy one that my family thinks I am. I watch in amazement as people say things to one another that they would never say to anyone else face to face. Lives have been destroyed and families have been torn apart because of saying too much on social networks. You can't even get a job anymore without your employer pulling your entire online history into question.
My private Twitter account already takes up enough of my time and I don't need something new to take me away from my already chaotic life. I've now joined Daily Kos which will now take away even more of my time. I've been told we can write what we want about any topic we want. I feel at home here already and my constant need to voice my opinion whether people like it or not seems to fit in here pretty well. I'm a semi-reformed keyboard warrior trying to change my life and Daily Kos seems to be the perfect fit for me.
