A lot of people on Tumblr seem to blow through a lot of pretty deep quotes on a daily basis. Are they thinking about them?
A lot of people on Tumblr also consume a vast amount of images, very quickly. Do they look at them for any period of time? Really study them, get to know them?
Facebook is similar.
I don’t like the way social media does TIME and MEMORY.
To be fair, I think we are almost entirely guilty of this, as a community, to some degree.
However I absolutely unconditionally think it sucks the way social media does time and memory.
For myself I can only say that the more I write about something that I post/reblog, the more likely it is that I spent some decent time looking at it/parsing it/thinking about it/meditating on it.
Also when thinking about this (your post) I realized that I spend a lot more time on word posts than on picture posts, which sort of chagrins me and I have made a small vow to myself to change that.
