How do you approach various kinds of social media?
My approach to Facebook is mostly lurking. I rarely comment but I do follow what other people say. This contrasts with my boyfriend’s approach, which is to have arguments and discussions on a daily basis.
When it comes to large pseudonymous social networks, like Tumblr or forums, I honestly feel like I never get to know anyone. In contrast, I’ve made many friends through blogging, including commenters and other bloggers. Often these relationships are tenuous. But tenuous relationships are good!
