  1. Tew, I enjoyed your journal entry.

    I have found that social media like Facebook and twitter aren’t bad ideas, but their potential is wasted by 99% of the users. I left Facebook after I realized nobody was posting anything worth reading. Rarely did I read anyone’s interesting observations or links to some important news or interesting website that would make me think and grow as a human. Instead, I just saw cat and food pictures, and “look at me having fun in the shopping mall” pictures. It was actually sad to think that people couldn’t value and enjoy their own experiences unless “the world” knew about it.

    Am I too cynical about social media people who use it? Maybe I am. But I’d much rather read these journal entries and see what you are “chewing on” with your brain than what you are chewing on in a restaurant.
