Selena Larson, writing for ReadWrite, hits the nail on the head in her post, “The Unbearable Sameness of Social Networks.” She shows screencaps of her profiles on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and LinkedIn, all of which have embraced the “cover photo” (to put it in FB language). Maybe this explains my recent disenchantment with social networking sites; and the increase in social media “hiatuses” I’ve seen popping up from “friends” and “follows.” Or maybe we’re seeing an acceptance of the visual. But more likely we’re seeing a troubling uniformity in how we engage with one another on social networking sites.
