joy and social media

Thanks for posting this, Hannah.  The question of joy, while funny here in the Onion text, is actually quite important by my lights.  How is social media becoming obligation, work, stress . . . and how would centering it in joy change it?

Also interesting to think

Also interesting to think about: if joy and happiness are so often achieved through "living in the moment," can we really expect facebook to bring us joy when we use it as a way to stop still in time and adjust our identities?

Looking forward to meeting you all this week...
