Digital Composition Sites
NOT THE MOST SURPRISING THING!!!!! 27 Million hits on youtube, that's a lot for a video from '87. I have used youtube to look at shows from my past. By the way I don't have facebook, and refuse to get it. I kinda feel like it is huge social blackhole, as in it is ruining the way we interact with one another, soon I'll sit in one room my fiance in the other and we will be typing to each other about are day. I don't really use much of any online media though, my typical online experience consist of looking at a vehicle forum, searching google scholar on a topic I'm interested in at that moment. As stated before I do not have a facebook account, youtube account, or really most other social networks, but beeradvocate.com and iH8mud.com I frequent. While looking at the social map, I see Skype, i use that almost daily to talk to my best friend who is Afghanistan, I enjoy being able to see him with the video features and hearing him. That is a cool experience almost as if we are hanging out at our apartment but are a world apart. The map shows a lot of things that I almost didn't think would be considered social networking, aka WoW, which i feel is a lot larger part of the MMO world. I feel as if I am in the soical network dark ages though, for instance just the other week I learned about Anton Fisher. It does amaze me that if you do something stupid you can become so famous.... ever see the movie Idiocracy.
