Great! Now we are all scratching our not so-itchy-heads for plunging ourselves into a quagmire of social unrest. We have too many accounts on the World Wide Web – for emails and social sites alike. Each has a specialty and/or familiarity that others do not.
We have Google Mail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter, Blogspot, Facebook, WordPress, etc. We are supposed to rejoice; but alas, we are spending too much time trying to sort out which is which. What mail to use as the primary address? What blogging service is to render our latest blabbering? What social site is to visit to keep in touch and get connected? Plenty is good, but plenty is also plentifully unmanageable.
Of course we have choices; we could try all and later pick and opt. We would scour each services and would try to adapt to different modes and styles. What good is there to sign up and then abandon the account without penning a single post?
Perhaps we don’t like the interface. Perhaps we are not comfortable with some rules and regulations. Perhaps we don’t even like the assigned address. Perhaps we do not even have an inkling of what to do with the account at all.
The internet is getting overloaded with traffic; with each enterprise trying to divert the scouring surfers its way. Good; but not so good.
But then again; free is as free does.
