Getting real about social media

“It amazes me that we’re all still on Twitter and Facebook. 
By ‘we,’ I mean adults. But emotionally we’re a culture of seven-year-olds. 
Have you ever had that moment when you’re updating your status and realize that every update is just a variation on a single request: 
Would someone please acknowledge me? 

“What do I have to do to get a little attention?”
