The Age of Notworking...oops..Networking.


Orkut, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Hi5 are just few of the names that come immediately to my mind when I think about networking. Its amazing how with the advent of mobile phones and all these amazing sites people are always hooked and connected. Networking takes priority over many f daily needs or rather we push our daily need till a point we cant have a control just to continue our networking.

Today when I look at kids in 7th-10th grade or even college, I just am unable to figure out if I had more fun or they are having more fun. I guess the answer is not straight-forward.
Today there are times when I have observed that individuals who are busy networking don't get time to network at home. While they "Net"work the only thing they do for their families and themselves is "Not"work.

Well Am I saying its a bad thing? Absolutely Not !! Right from being a kid I have learnt "All good things in measured quantity". I am too addicted to networking cause I like to know what my family &friends are doing once in a while, see their pics and also share mine with them, also vent out my frustration in my statuses.

But today looking around myself I kind of get the feeling we are reaching the "age of networking" and "notworking".
