the beginning of the end of “T.M.I.” and “oversharing”? :)

from Amber Mac, Fast Company, “Social Media’s Next Act: Disappearing, Private, Secret-Filled Networks” (via mattcreem):

“…Secret-filled networks do feel a bit (well, a lot) childish, but what they do enforce is the reality that there are plenty of users who want to stay anonymous online…”

A social pendulum swing from “TMI” towards exclusivity, curated networks as opposed to just edited content, might be a natural countermovement to social oversharing. The new “vaporware” might be just that, given current ephermal pic sharing mobile apps like Snapchat. Attention “KimYe”s of the world, please take heed. 🙂
