Richmond's Own (but unowned) Website

 
 
To post or not to post? For class, we’re reading Sherry Turkle’s  Alone Together, about how we interact with technology, especially communications networks. Many people post their jobs/internships on Facebook.   I’m conflicted; I’m usually against it – but I suppose I have more social/psychological perspective now.  Yes, prospective employers may see it. But am I using a post to replace live synchronous conversation? Do I feel less accomplished than people who post? Do I need to feel the emotional response when others like my activity? Questions to answer later as I turn and seek shelter in the safety of blogging instead...
