Social networking !!


I Don’t remember when I made my last post. I am just soo.. free today and I thought atleast a month I should make a post. Today’s post is something deep, atleast for me. Everyone knows social networking, who hasn’t heard of Facebook, MySpace, Orkut or Twitter.

I was just reading about twitter, that was what led me to this post.

Anyways, a little background is needed here.

I am going to share my Social Net Past here.

I have been there and done that pretty much in social sites, but not good at keeping it up.The core reason obviously is I am not gung ho about socialising, I hate to talk about my blogs to my friends, oh I do have friends! It ‘s not that I don’t have any.

I am not very good at keeping touch with friends. real or unreal, I am just not happy when I am forced to post them, poke them or whatever is it. It’s either I see them or I don’t. Ok coming back to track 🙂

I started using Orkut since everyone was using it, Duh!! what a revelation. First time not so good. It was when college was over (2006 ). People were saying their Hi’s trying to keep in touch. Then it got less, got new friends moved on. Was busy too sometimes, so didn’t care to post. Then I decided some fine day, I am gonna commit Orkuticide. I deleted my account 🙂 This was before, Google acquired Orkut. There was a delete profile 🙂 Now you don’t have it, by the way. I am feeling old now 🙂 ! Technology does that, making you feel old :-). Then there were some queries about my mysterious disappearance. Some called, Wow they called 🙂 but I still didn’t revisit Web 1.0 Social sites.

Then Web 2.0 started, got interested into MySpaces, not even a month, I started losing interest 🙂 Then after an year or probably 2 years, I donno, now my memory is not so good. I am really getting old…

Just recently I restarted my Orkut account. Now its accessible using my gmail account 🙂 Just like this blog. So basically google is ensuring that I can’t commit Suicide in Web 2.0. It’s egging me on to become social. Oh ! I remember those days when my mom and dad lecturing me on socialising. Saying a Hi! asking How are you?..

I still am sticking with my responses 🙂

“they are in front of me.. They are looking good to me.. So why should I ask? even if I ask.. even if they had won a million buck lottery.. or lost a loved one.. or feeling like killing me.. Their response would be only this. I am doing good or better, I am fine.. ”

I think only think 1 thing after they respond.. I knew you would say that.. never heard anyone respond in a different way.. call me crazy but can you prove me wrong. Well anyways, let’s get to the point.

I am joining twitter, or atleast considering it. I donno, I just wanna try cos I donno what this is about. I am very curious.. I just want to document this moment, and revisit it some time later..

For Fun’s sake, making fun of my own is not very nice thing but probably this could end up in a nice way, I can’t define what nice is at present, so let’s see… How this cookie crumbles 🙂
