How social networking provides support for nerds
Social networking is sometimes the bane of my existence. I find that people from high school or college that I was never friends with, never had conversations with, have located me on Facebook and want to add me and fill my newsfeed with posts I don’t want to read. I follow people on Twitter and on Tumblr that I have never met before in real life and never will meet, I’m sure, but I sought them out because I like their content. Others have sought me out for the same reason, or because they hope that I would join their flock, thus boosting their numbers and making them seem even more popular and in-demand.
