Something that Facebook and Twitter have in common: they are short form by force. They are vaguely blog-like services with very short character limits. Also, they are wildly and rampantly popular.

Part of why I don't post here enough is that it feels like I need to offer a lot of content to do so. That's time consuming, and often difficult, and it thus often doesn't work out.

I suppose this is the advantage of such media; low-content, brief factoids lend themselves both to reading without a lot of attention or comprehension invested, and composing them is no more difficult. Our culture has become dangerously multitasking-centric, so I suppose it's a natural consequence.
