In One Word, What Frustrates You About Social Media?

Yesterday, I was getting buried in Twitter/Facebook and I realized just how many frustrations I have with social media. So, hoping I wasn’t alone, I posted the following:

“In one word, what is your greatest frustration with social media? Go!”

Within a few minutes, some non-existent, very accurate words came out of it.

Jeff B. – abbreviations

Munya P. – privacy

Stanton S. – denuancification

MaryLu E. – hypervoluminosity

Richie F. – TimeSuckingVacuumEffect

Scott O. – NonThreadedDiscussions

David W. – safety

@allenoliver – farmville

@RyanHurlburt – noisy

@devinmaddox – self-promotion

@_ChrisBoyd – impolite

@kylelreed – distance

@jjhawes – buy-in

@Lyn_Smith – misunderstandings

What is mine? @KerryBural – truncation

Half the time, limits like 140 characters force me to be succinct. The other half of the time it renders an incomplete thought.

How about you?

  1. Addicting, Earlier in the week i realized how much time it took away from me. But yet i still got on it. Even now i'm blogging. The whole realm of social media is addicting and time-consuming. It is awesome dont get me wrong. but i know there are times when i just have to take a step back and clear myself of it for a week or two so that i can get in tune with God again.

    Sorry for the long post but i just had to explain my word.
