We often talk about online social media channels as they are some kind of inebriate or illicit drug.
- “Are you ‘on’ LinkedIn?”
- “She’s addicted to Facebook.”
- “I’m a heavy Twitter user.”
I wonder if it’s because we sense that our online social media behaviors aren’t exactly healthy or moderate. After all, we seldom admit an addiction to leafy green vegetables or that we’re heavy elliptical training machine users. And when was the last time you asked someone if they were “on” clean water?
