Technology is meant to be a tool to enrich our lives and enable us to do more with less. Instead, too often we enjoy technology for its own sake, and embrace anything new not because it will help us but because it is new. Then we unconsciously use it to isolate ourselves instead of connecting. What do you actually want to do with Twitter and why? Same with Facebook. Rather than switch it all off, though, question yourself before you use it each time: is it enabling me or isolating me?

PPS - And I joined Facebook because a critical mass of my friends did.
