The Social Networking Sourpuss

So much has changed since the advent of social media. Many of us now long for better days without the incessant flood of updates, requests and other digital annoyances. A chief complain I've heard from social media sourpusses was echoed by Elizabeth Bernstein, who explained in the Wall Street Journal how Facebook can have destructive consequences on real life relationships (wait, what are those again?). (An extreme example would be the case of Brian Lewis, who murdered his partner, claiming she spent "too much time on Facebook.")
