I am not alone in noticing the severe lack of original content coming out of Hollywood these days... remakes, reboots, re-imaginings and endless sequels. So there is no need to rehash that here.
What I have been noticing more and more, however, is a similar trend on social media sites like Facebook and Google+. A lot of people posting seem to be endlessly reposting content from other sources rather than posting something original. And by this, I mean reposting (or sharing) posts made by other people, or videos or cutesy pictures and random quotations, most of the time without any additional content beyond "This is cool" or "Awesome!" This is akin to when everybody discovered email and forwarded every single joke or cat picture that came along (this still happens, too -- it keeps snopes.com in business!)
I know I have been guilty of this myself, when I am bored or can't find something better to post about. But in the past few weeks, I have realized, if I have nothing to post about, maybe I just shouldn't post... or... better yet, write about something and post it via this blog :-)
