Wow, I have found my people!!!!
I am not big on joining sites but today I joined DC because On DC, I have found many like-minded people regarding Social Babysitting (Networking).
I have no use for these sites (FB, Tw, etc) but I don't object to others joining the herd. If that is what they want. I do object to their pervasiveness, to the point many things can't be accessed online unless you login through one of the babysitters. I am beginning to wonder if other sites are getting kickbacks from the SB sites.
I figure if others want to use them and be part of the herd, so be it. But don't lock me out of major websites (ABC "instant index", PBS 10 min. early preview Downton Abbey) because I don't use them! WTH
Some on here, mentioned that those of us that don't want to use these sites must not know how to use them, or their privacy settings.
Excuse me, but I am very computer/internet savvy. I am fully aware of settings (ROFL, I won't even get into that). It's still feels like a herd mentality to me. And I feel like I am being forced down the loading chute.
