Is Social Networking Killing You? – The Lede Blog – NYTimes.com.
We are of the same opinion as written in the Lede Blog. We say the same thing only expressed in fewer words. We are accused of being “old” because we do not use Face Book or Twitter to communicate with “friends.” However, I really enjoy the Traiger Blog and wish that more members of our family would share their thoughts and experiences on it. Right now, Saul, Larry, Sarah and I are about the most faithful contributors. Does anyone else read it? Isn’t anyone interested? Should we drop our Family Blog? I would love to get opinions and suggestions. Glenna, Joe, and Franziska, you are our family. Please contribute…
The great thing about social networking, whether on Facebook or on a blog like this one, is that each person can contribute or read as much or as little as they want. Some people have more to say or enjoy posting more than others, who may be reading and enjoying as they have the time and inclination.
The same is true with other social networking sites. You take what you want from them. It’s just like any technology, different people use them differently. Just because some people talk on the phone all day long doesn’t mean other people shouldn’t have phones to make an occasional call. The technology is neutral.
I agree with Ilene on this. The family blog is here to be used as family members see fit, and there shouldn’t be any pressure to contribute. The blog is always there, ready to be used when the mood strikes.
