  1. I am definitely similar to Gina. I run a small business that is based completely off social networking. I have to Instagram a picture wherever I am. I am always condescendingly critiquing my friends repetitive foursquare check-ins. I compose close to 15 tweets and 5 Facebook messages on any given day. I am constantly connected and checking Twitter for news.

    I am not like Gina in that I see my online life as an extension of myself. I am able to disconnect from my networks because I see them as tools. I am not addicted to social networks because I know the statistical “downtimes” when I do not have to be online. I can simply optimize the timing of my own posts to go out in a time when most of my followers are online.

    • I completely agree with what you are saying about how you see networks as tools. Everyone can be addicted and attached to social networks at times, but they don’t take over some peoples’ lives.

  2. Honestly, I have said some things on the old Call of Duty, that I definitely not like brought back up at the pearly gates. It was during my time in Highschool football, and around the time that the infamous “2 girls 1 cup” was circulating, and it was in vogue to say some pretty disgusting things. It was an effective tactic.

  3. WOW! Dogs have many special skills as well. Such as acute hearing and a sense of smell that can be 1000 to 1000000 X’s better than a human! This is a true story— There is a drug-sniffing dog that “found” a plastic container packed with 35 pounds of marijuana submerged in gasoline within a gas tank. Take that Dolphins!!
