I received lots of birthday wishes today--over the phone, in person, on Facebook. But I’ll tell you right now, the majority of them were on Facebook. Not that I’m saying anything against any of these people, this is just a bit of a rant about the internet in general. Does it not bother anyone that a majority of our communication these days is on the internet or through texting? Personally, and I know this is ironic seeing as I’m currently using the internet to communicate with you, but I think to some degree, we rely on it too much.
The internet is useful. But it’s also overused. I would like to challenge everyone to take a full day off from the internet. That includes all forms of social networking, google, everything. I challenge you to try it and see how long it takes before you pick up your phone and go back on Facebook.
