Twisted is the word, all right. A very accurate commentary on a national craze, made personal.

I think that for some the 'social networks' are just a place to emote and tell everyone that they have a life. Nice write Ken.

Especially verses 4 and 5 -> my head nodding in so many yeses, as I reach around the for another hit of idealism...

i could not agree more. Social networking is getting way out of control. I found out my kid got married over coffee one morning. People will (and do) post totally inappropiate,personal tidbits of information. It's ....
YOU NAILED IT!

You hit the nail RIGHT ON THE HEAD! You're so very right about all of these things. Even as a young person I find that social networking is much more open than I'd prefer.

I'm definitely feeling this way about love these days. Brutal and brilliant.

How much is too much? I think we've past that limit as well.

I'm sure she'll derive gratification from having inspired this paragon of ex-positions. I guess twisted is the new mundane, while this undoubtedly qualifies as a true classic...

You've managed to convey your voice very well.

Another jem of poetic expression, Ken, dealing with a very simple and yet complex subject. Excellent title, love how the text and substance builds to it and that unforgettable last line.

It can be rather disconcerting to find the intimate bits aired in a public/social forum. Thanks to the Internet Gods for making the entire world a smaller place to vent? It is amazing, how much more I seem to know about my children and various other relatives, along with folks whose goings-on I'd rather not be witness to. Well said, Ken.

I really like this, the truth of it. Social networks have opened us up to a whole new view into people we don't always want to know that much about!
