Why are these people following me? It’s a horror story for the social media age, from Animation Domination High-Def (ADHD).
This video made me think. My career since 1982 has been based on how many people pay attention to me, and I’ve always had a layer of anonymity built into my public persona, beginning in radio. When the internet came along, it was simple for me to jump in with both feet. It must be very different for the average person who casually uses a social network that requires a “real name” and then one day posts something that goes viral. It has to be quite unsettling. -via Geeks Are Sexy
