I No Longer Want to Know What You Ate for Breakfast

Social media are here to stay.

But a small number of wired but weary people have begun unplugging from Facebook and other sites, burned out by the “constant contact.”

Martha Irvine calls it “online sociability fatigue” in an Associated Press article this week. (I’d quote from it, but AP might break down my door for borrowing its content unfairly.) 

A trend? Maybe not yet. But it’s certainly a challenge that Facebook and others may have to face soon: What happens when you’re so ubiquitous that you’re no longer cool?
