Is Fluther truly significant and important to some peoples lives?
In a comment to one of my questions @wundayatta made this observation:
“Some people’s emotions run high around here. What happens to them here is a very serious matter affecting much of their lives.” (emphasis is mine)
Now this sort of made me stop in my tracks.
I admit, that Fluther is fun, and there are all sorts of interesting folks that participate in it. I am surrounded by computers all day, and one of them is connected to Fluther so I can watch the action-just like watching the stock market (These days, even better than watching the market).
But the truth is, when it gets down to it, Fluther is a fun distraction, a form of entertainment, and nothing more. It really does not provide meaning to my life.
I do not mean this personally- I am sure that most of you are individually nice, bright, friendly, and likeable people and if we met face to face, I am sure we could be friends.
But is @wundayatta correct?
Is Fluther a big thing to some people?
I mean, It is perfectly OK if it is, but I never thought about it that way.
Well maybe that is not true. I have considered that some people who are sick or disabled might connect to the outside world with Fluther. Fair enough
But outside of extraordinary circumstances, for whom is Fluther an important value in their life?
