In the short time I’ve been on the Net ( since 2004 – I was a very late starter ) I’ve met some really great people, some people I wish I knew personally, unfortunately they live all over the World. But in many ways I still consider them a part of my somewhat-extended family.

The problem I find is staying in touch. Friends on Facebook, Friends on Twitter, Friends on Blip, here a friend, there a friend, everywhere a friend friend. 😀

You want to be able to talk to them all, but where can you find the time? If 30 people want to talk to you all at once and you only have time to reply to 10 people are the other 20 people who want to talk feeling neglected…rejected…ignored? Do they understand that you just don’t have the time to respond to all 30? Are they going through the same thing and wondering about the same questions?

How do you deal with the new modern social demands on your time?

  1. To be entirely honest, I’d be surprised if they cared. It’s not that our online friends don’t have a place in our minds, it’s just that face to face friends and family are more important. 

    And I betcha I’m one of those people you wish you knew personally 😉 Just blowin’ my own horn up in here. 😀
