Constant connection: We expect more now

Thanks to Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and Foursquare and all the other sites that help you update all your friends, it’s easy to expect everyone to know what you’re doing and what you’ve done.

I know when I talk to someone I haven’t seen in a while, I often wonder how much they know about me. Do they know I lived in Korea for a year? Do they know a moved back to America? Do they know where I’m going next? Do they know about the adoption plans?

And then I start wondering what I should know about them? What have they posted that I’ve missed? What have we talked about that I’ve forgotten?

Once again, the expectations kill it.
