Virtually dizzy.

I was confused.

I stared at an article I was reading…

This should be shared…

The window in the corner kept telling me that people were re-tweeting me, @ mentioning me, and I had 3 DM’s.

My mind drifted…

Then the whispers started…

“It’s a good read.”

Post it on the microblog.

Stumble on your way to the bookmarklet.”

“Who cares? Get back to the +

“Your circles are waiting at the +

“Your page needs it. That’s why no one “likes” your page.”

I shake away the madness for a second, gulp some water, and take comfort in how many people I’m LinkedIn with.

I put shoes on Facebook, play with my circles, and try to categorize my virtually social life.

“ding”

It’s a text. I should look at the DM’s first… those might be more important.  What happened to those shoes? Did I Facebook them? Shit. I think I pinned it. Wait, that’s what I wanted to do.

If I stumble with the +, it’s because I’m busy posting pins in circles and lists.

Then there’s a knock on my door.  Do people still use those?

It’s the little guy…

vaguely familiar.

I think I knew him in a past life.

The little guy throws a shovel at me.

And tells me I need to digg something.

I’m dizzy.

Which is weird…

considering I have Klout in technology.

  6. I have figured out that I can give, at most, 3 social cites my attention after that I get overwhelmed and can’t even function. Much like this!

  7. This is exactly what social media does to my brain. We need help.
