Comment on Moving Life Online – Me vs. the WELLites by Hayashi Hougi

Hi Mia,

I totally agree with you on the part about missing out – when my friends got Facebook and I didn’t, I found them talking in real life about things they had discussed on Facebook that I didn’t know about and hence the quality of my real life friendship declined.

I’m curious about your claim that your use of social media is “anti-social”. What do you mean by you use them to share “real-life experiences”? Also, when you consume content on social media platforms, do you “like” or “retweet/reblog” things you find interesting?
