Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

My Internet Mess

That's what it feels like with all those social networks. We are all connected now arent we? Web 2.0.. the chaotic numbers of social websites.. there is no end to this madness.

I do admit, I do enjoy connecting with people, and I have my fair number of social websites. Im on Flickr and twitter, and Facebook. This is minimal compared to others who enjoy a much wider social presence online.

However, even with this many social networks, I ask myself

I got my photos on Flickr. Now I want to upload more wait, I can put those on Facebook. Hmm, but cant I put them on both Facebook and Flickr? I can, but why should I? Ill just install the Flickr app on Facebook. What about personal pictures? Oh.. Im not even sure if I should put those up there, or anywhere! I guess Ill keep them locally. Oh but wait, I can always upload the public ones to my Google Picasa web thingie, cant I? And upload the personal ones and set them as hidden? Or wait, cant I integrate that somehow with the rest of the social websites? Bleh!

I need to update my status, something happened and I need to share it with the world. Ill blog about it. Nah, it isnt worth a blog post, how about I tweet it. Hold on, I can also update on Facebook, at least I am not limited by 140 characters. Bummer, if only I can update both at the same time oh wait, I can do that! Great.. so what now?

Alright, I admit, it isnt as chaotic as I had suspected, but still very troublesome none the less. If only there was a way to put it ALL together. *staring at the blog*

welcome to the Internet.

    Well, what can you expect. Is similar to real world. You can go to one place, or two, but you have to remember what are you for here or there. Why do I want to go to that grocery? Why I don’t like that mall? I think we could compare those things because all these social networking sites are just another “shops” where you can purchase advertising tools to your blog or social contacts with other people from around the world. You can also resign from being a part of such sites and go to club X each evening and try to meet some people there, on in any other place that is connected to the idea of “meeting people”. It’s the same. But Web 2.0 gives many opportunities to find people from far away :)

Reserved, going to add something here later.
