I’ve blogged before about how difficult I find it sometimes to keep up with everything.
I blog, I tweet, I post – there are so many social media platforms it’s overwhelming.
Zed and I had a conversation the other day about how she felt SL was slowly moving out of SL.
Back in the good ‘ol days, when a shop came out with a new item, you would get a group notice and a LM or pic attached.
These days, you get a notice from their subscribo or group. Said notice tells you to go see the item on their Flickr page or their Facebook page.
In addition to notices, people plurk, tweet, and tumblr all over the place.
And since, as Zed pointed out, SL is essentially a fancy chat room, is it becoming unnecessary?
I’ve always had my offline IM’s set to go to my email, so I didn’t miss anything if messages got capped.
Although I resisted for some time, I now have that email accessible on my phone.
I have enough going on at various times that it became more convenient to be able to reply to people as soon as possible.
However, I find that my phone now goes off waaaaayyy too often.
If people come to SL looking for connections, is it unrealistic to think that once those connections are established, then they move outside of SL into RL?
How much of your SL bleeds over into your RL?
Do you keep the two strictly separate?
If so, how?
