How many of these people do you know?
I know too many of these kinds of people and I discover more and more of them online every day.
Abandoned foursquare accounts, half-hearted facebook profiles and twitter accounts that have not been touched since the end of 2009 when twitter was the “next big thing”.
I believe that the average everyday “person on the street” from the age of 25 upwards, still does not really “get” online social media.
They merely partake so they can be a part of the excitement that the news media tells them is occurring.
The internet is already full of abandoned sites, forums and message boards.
They are the online ghost towns just taking up file space and providing virtual rubbish for future generations to clean up in years to come.
