Do you let social media accounts whither and die, or should you make a proclamation and strike your accounts dead? What effects the system more, or does any action have minimal effect. Do you transfer from active to shadow profile? Does Amazon continue to sell you nappies and wet wipes long after your toddler passes puberty?
I lecture on digital media and use of personal space for identity branding for musicians, and I feel I am peddling gawk to the easily addicted. The marketing discourse of identity construction demands participation. And to be able to talk about the central concepts here I have to be party to them. I can’t sell pups I wouldn’t stroke. So, if I leave any of the social networking sites or social media platforms, how can I continue to lecture the next generation of participants for the network.
This needs more thought.
