Nee, mensen worden niet moe van het bezig zijn met elkaar (op bijvoorbeeld Hyves). Zoals Nathania Johnson het zegt:
"My personal answer is that people aren't necessarily sick of social networking as they are of all the "gaming" of social media systems. Who's the most popular Twitterer? How many friends do you have on Facebook? Those vain social status games are what I find tiring. What's not tiring is simply connecting and networking. After all, networking is as old as man. It simply adapts to the technology at hand."
