Social Media bubble

Mi tocca citare di nuovo Umair Haque che parla di bolla dei social media con una interessante ipotesi che in sostanza si basa sulla scarsa qualità con la quale ci colleghiamo agli altri sui social network:

Today, “social” media is trading in low-quality connections — linkages that are unlikely to yield meaningful, lasting relationships.
The social isn’t about beauty contests and popularity contests. They’re a distortion, a caricature of the real thing. It’s about trust, connection, and community. That’s what there’s too little of in today’s mediascape, despite all the hoopla surrounding social tools. The promise of the Internet wasn’t merely to inflate relationships, without adding depth, resonance, and meaning. It was to fundamentally rewire people, communities, civil society, business, and the state — through thicker, stronger, more meaningful relationships
