I subscribed to Facebook a couple of weeks ago and I found it exciting because I could find some University peers, family members in the US, former colleagues and so on but now I wonder: what to do now?
I spent some days at “building relationships” trying to find all persons I could by searching, inviting,asking friends, I’ve also joined a couple of communities but now I’m stuck, don’t know what to do next!
I still remember the days in which I started surfing the web on Mosaic, Yahoo and so on…I went to bed with my mind working at incredible speeds. I was astonished at thinking how many opportunities I had from that moment on: I could have news about my favorite band (U2!!!) without the need of buying newspapers, I could chat to someone on the other side of the world, I could have tech manuals at a glance and so on … my mind couldn’t stop thinking on the possibilities.
In the last months I’ve tried these new “hypes” on the net such as SecondLife and Facebook in the end what they gave me was just an initial excitement, they “pumped up” my curiosity for a couple of days but after that all became boring, not interesting anymore because they are not real “a step forward” stuff.
Is this due to my mind or simply we are so much flooded of new things everyday that suddenly our attention looses its way?
