I find that it can be variable. I switch how many people I follow and the like depending on mood. Lately, I've been trying to cut back from social media entirely just due to all the anxiety it causes.

I sometimes wonder if this is a backlash that will send a few of us to "RL-ONLY" lives. But I hope not. Social media has allowed me to meet so many people. But boiling it down to a "like" or a "+" is a problem ... but also a solution. I know that, on Facebook or g+, if I see something that leaves me uncertain of how to respond, I'll just sorta flag it so the person knows I saw it. But, beyond that, inventing words would seem insulting. But, again, no less than clicking "like" rather than saying anything. It's a catch-22, isn't it?

Anyway, I'd love to know a solution... The number of social media outlets keeps growing and, with it, it dilutes our ability to have meaningful conversation.

Yours,
Sylvan
