overuse of social media

I am normally not a fan of the Doonesbury cartoon strip. But they had a brilliant cartoon last Sunday concerning social media and its overuse by users. Check it out here. Based on my observations, this is the sort of thing some users do to varying degrees. Whether it is lamenting problems with the Farmville application on Facebook, or some other trivial or not so trivial issue, many users get caught up in unredemptive online drama which then creates stress in other areas of their lives. Indeed, for many folks, online and offline stuff is becoming one and the same, especially with the use of handheld devices. I simply think it would be helpful to revisit the need for boundaries in life.
