With all of the social networking sites (SNS) today, a lot of what we do is transferred from analogue to digital. I worry for my children; I want them to experience a bit of analogue before being sent into the unforgiving culture of digital.
Social networking sites (SNS) have increased in numbers by large amounts over the past few years. We now have Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Bebo, MySpace, Friendster, Orkut, Netlog, Buzznet, Blogster and that doesn’t even cover the tip of the iceberg. This doesn’t even include networking sites created for more local purposes such as Rhodes University’s RUconnected or Ratchat created by anonymous Rhodes students.

In light of the upcoming South African elections and today being my 21st birthday and all, I have been thinking of what it is like to be a born free South African in an ever expanding digital society.
Everyone is fighting for their own opinion to be heard over social media, blogs, news website comments. We form kinds of web communities from what we believe and think about.
