Cooking dinner? Show me. Saw a funny picture online? Post it. Did your relationship status change? Update it. This is the life we live: where every thing we do is linked to a post whose significance is measured by the amount of feedback we have received. If we're not sure what to wear for a night, we post our options on Instagram and then dress accordingly. If someone gave us a compliment we have to retweet it on Twitter so our followers can see.
In high school, the symptoms were traceable but not overwhelming. We weren't as plugged in as we are now. Maybe we had Myspace and Facebook, but that was the extent of our online identities. As we got older, and as new websites began to flourish, the number of username-password combinations that we had to remember increased. Now there's Tumblr, Instagram, Google +, and so on.
