kallistixf: (time for a break)
I love social networks.

They're how I follow the news, get different perspectives, stay in touch with friends -- and make new ones. When people complain that online connections are just a poor substitute for "real life", I just shake my head and tell them they're doing it wrong. And as I've argued passionately in Cognitive evolution and revolution, The future of civil liberties, A grassroots social network activist's perspective, and Freedom not fear, combining social network and real world activism is a great opportunity to regain our rights online and off.

But there are downsides as well. Facebook constantly changing its interface and finding new ways to violate my privacy, the arrogance and elitism of the guys running Google+ and their evil naming policy (along the incessant circling over the last few days), Diaspora*'s inability to edit posts or block obnoxious people … and the time I spend checking FB, G+, D*, Twitter, Quora, Dreamwidth, tribe.net, free-association and elsewhere.

So it's time for a break from social networks.

See you in a week or two!
