Everything is Great on the Internet

After posting about why the Internet makes me feel like an idiot my friend Tim had this to add:

Tim: Did you read the slate article I shared re: Facebook makes you sad?

Chris: I have it in the queue.

Tim: I think that goes in to your blog post, if tangentially.

Tim: Everyone is cool on the Internet.

Chris: Exactly.

Tim: No one is sad or imperfect or boring or lethargic.

Tim: Because it is filtered reality.

I didn’t think about this factor when writing the aforementioned post, but man Tim hits the nail on the head.
