[Blog] Has your social ego taken over?
At every turn on social we’re being scored on how influential we are, showing off how many fans/followers we have or showcasing how many people read our blogs or have us in their Circles. Egos are a lot like a s… everyone has one. Focusing on these numbers makes it easy to fall into the trap of feeding the ego. Much like a Mogwai after midnight, feeding an ego can have disastrous repercussions. The most common of these is inflating one’s self-worth. While we all fall into this trap every now and then, it’s important to make sure that you are not consumed by your ego. Look and Laugh.

But it is hard to blame people for the dramatic belief that the icon’s end is near given his ongoing health issues and his weight loss. Further, Jobs’ sudden departure from the day to day helm of Apple broke a monotonous summer of no technology/social media news. Perhaps it’s simply time to balance his life a little more because life (health, family, mind, etc.) demands it. Keep breathing the air, Steve.
