Wired

I'm having social media fatigue.

I need a break.

It's nice to know what your family and friends are up to once in awhile but not all the time.

And when Blackberry experienced a service outage for three days, I couldn't contact my closest friends on Blackberry Messenger for a day. But I was still receiving my Facebook updates and Twitter feeds.

I laughed when my brother stated he had to resort to live conversations - face to face.

Could we be suffering from crackberry withdrawal?

I think so.

A day without Blackberry Messenger wasn't so bad.

Have we forgotten to socialize and interact with others on a personal level? Who still makes phone calls anyway? I now receive texts from my own mother!

Everywhere we go, people are wired.

We want the latest news, gadgets and technology.

Even as I write, the alerts on my Blackberry haven't stopped flashing. Who could it be? Is it breaking news? Should I check?

Oh dear.
