Is there life after social media?

My son invited me to join him on Google+, probably because he can choose to put me in a different "circle" from his friends and show me only what he wants me to see. :) But I barely have time to blog, especially now that I've decided that my health requires me to get to sleep at a decent hour. (Hmm, gotta relearn to set the DVR so I can watch Jon Stewart while eating dinner.) When do people have time for all this stuff? I haven't even bothered to accept my numerous invitations to join LinkedIn (on the assumption that nobody's going to hire a 62-year-old female anyway, so it's not worth worrying about professional networking). All of you folks who "post" (or whatever) on Facebook and tweet on Twitter, etc., when do you have time for live people and real life?

Its easy for me- but then again I don't have a spouse or children.

Without (a) kid(s), it's easier for you to resist, too :). My son talked me into it--I'm now on Google+.

My blogging output (never high to be with) dropped to nothing but comments to other people's posts as I joined FB. (Still not on twitter).

I'm also on Google Plus, if you'd like to add me to your circles.

Larry, I'll probably use Google+ for posting photos. I'll also probably be the last blogger left. :) I can only write and follow comments in just so many places, especially since my new goal in life is to improve my health by getting more sleep.
