When all I needed to do to connect to someone I know was to email them but obviously this is just too simple and obvious. Now, if I don’t have Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, Linkedin, Tinder, and who knows what, I can’t do the simple, direct thing anymore, send him or her an email.
Just now I wanted to send a friend an email and I was directed to his Instagram page, no go. So onto his Tumblr account, still no go, so off to his Twitter account but I don’t have a Twitter account so I can’t message him!
Do you wonder why I’m so disenchanted with all this crap, never mind surveillance, data mining etc, for ultimately, even with the plethora of ‘communication tools’ available to us just makes it even more difficult to actually communicate, simply and directly! In the end I used my phone.
