Questioning Social Networking and Giving In All At Once

While I wonder about the value of blogging and social networks, twittering, etc. I can't help feel the appeal. From an active participation standpoint, I question whether this is simply egotistical narcissism in thinking that other people actually care what I think or what I'm doing. From the passive role of reading and following others I wonder if I enter into the role of voyeur. Yet I continue to buy in more and more from my blog, to my initial entry into the Facebook fray. Perhaps it's a question of the whole being more than the sum of its parts with the delude of posts and comments and discussion somehow leading to insight and enlightenment, or perhaps it's just drivel.
