Social Networking Fatigue February 20, 2007

Day by day more and more social networking sites are emerging and it can be really difficult to keep up with them all, not least to keep your different profiles and networks up-to-date. Recently, I stumbled across the term “social networking fatigue” which signifies the:

Mental exhaustion and stress caused by creating and maintaining an excessive number of accounts on social networking sites.

Read more about that term here.

However, it seems that there is now a solution to that problem. Yesterday my colleague Thomas Ryberg told me about a new kind of social networking service, Explode, that makes it possible to connect to all your friends without signing up to the many different sites that they use. Thomas writes about the service:

I guess one could call it a meta-social networking site – as it is not as such a social networking site itself, but can aggregate your friends across different sites and have them displayed anywhere you want [...] – no more see my Myspace contacts here, see my bloglogcommunity here, see my 100 other networks here …I think that’s quite clever…

Read more about this at Thomas’ blog and explore Explode here.

Your comment on Explode is spot on. Tools that allow cross platform communications will revolutionize the way we use social networks to avoid the fatigue you mention.

In my opinion, there are some important facts about social networking.
They keep collecting information in every detail they can.Privacy is beeing harrassed and damaged, and in the near future people can face with really serious problems… (not just simple spams, more serious than that)

Check out this article what I mean is really clear :

[...] Here’s a new phrase for all of us on Earth: “Social Network Fatigue”. It started on QZog with people getting fed up with maintaining multiple spaces on multiple platforms. It further manifested itself with people just falling out of love with the whole thing because, like nostalgia, it just wasn’t what it used to be. It might not sound like we have that problem down here, but on closer inspection, there are people writing PhD theses about it. [...]
