Gentle readers,

I think I mentioned I'm an staying away from Facebook. In it's absence I've been reading Twitter instead. They both have some of the same flaws, the biggest one being that I can't just pick up where I left off. However Twitter just seems to have less urgency associated with reading it. With Facebook there feel like there is a compilation to keep reading, just one more screen to see if person x posted. It's easier to put aside.

The people I follow on Twitter also have the advantage of being followed because of what they post and not just because I know them (or rather know one aspect of them and am astonished at their other opinions).

I think the word I'm looking for is obligation. I often feel obligated to read Facebook and that obligation makes me crave schadenfreude which is not a good thing.
