‘To post or not to post, that is the question’, as William Shakespeare would inevitably have posted had he been around today (he probably would have had @BardboyofWarwickshire as his Twitter name). How many of us have posted on Facebook or tweeted something, having been economical with our 140 character allowance, only to regret instantly once hitting the Send button and bloating the blogosphere with the minutiae of our daily lives? Are we becoming obsessed with how many likes we get from friends and friends of friends of friends? Did we really need to let all those people know we have just eaten a fifth doughnut at work or that the person standing in front of you in the supermarket queue is wearing their t-shirt inside out (LOL!! :))? Perhaps future generations of social historians will look back and laugh at how the advent of social media – though undoubtedly a powerful and effective means of connecting people – actually marked the dawn of trivialisation!
This Sanguine Books cover also comes in an alternative version, ‘The Dawn of Trivialisation’ by a different author. Both covers use the main corporate colour and depict the avian outline of the well-subscribed social networking corporation’s logo.
