The Atlantic posted an opinion piece that nicely responds to people who complain about social media. This is pretty much what I say to people who whine that social media is full of mediocre, meaningless crap. What you see is what you cultivate. If all you see is garbage, that says a lot about your “friends”. If you want to read interesting things, build up an interesting network!
“My diagnosis is simple, Roger: your friends and associates are terrible and boring. Being that you are a smart and interesting guy who would distill only the finest information from any social network, the problem is the garbage going into your feed, which can only come out as garbage in your column. And that garbage is being created by the people who you choose to follow and know. “
