When I first started in the fashion 3 or 4 years ago, EGL on LiveJournal was a very busy place. One could find at least two or three pages of posts all within a day or two of each other. The same could be said for Daily Lolita. Today, the posts are fewer and further between. Why has this happened? I think a lot of it has to do with the boom of social networking, particularly, Facebook.
Facebook is initially a very attractive medium for us all to keep in touch. Posting and responding to each other is at lightening speed, it’s very easy to find people, and you can upload seemingly infinite photos. Most information is just as easily shared across large groups of people as well. This limitlessness, I believe, is its Achilles’ Heel.
