The quote in the title of this post from this blog post got me thinking… How do we approach our consumption of information from blogs and Twitter? Is it more like “everyone shares, nobody reads”? How many people actually read – in a thoughtful way – the blogs they subscribe to and the tweets they retweet? Why are there so many more hits on a blog post than there are comments? Why don’t readers take the time to comment? Too much work? Too much time? Or they didn’t really read the post or follow the tweeted link?
Do we need to be more thoughtful consumers of information and use consumption as the entry way into deeper conversations? Or is “deeper” not even possible? Are we doomed to superficiality?
