This Seems Like More Social Media Than Necessary

I was reading an online article today, and at the bottom of it I saw this:

Look at that! I swear this is not a Photoshopped image. Look at all the ways you can share this incredibly interesting story with your social media friends. Not one, not two, not three, but TEN freakin' different ways. Ten. Actually the count goes to twelve if you count email and printing it out I guess mailing it to someone. The mind boggles.

Do we really need ten different kinds of social media to keep up with? Aren't Facebook and Twitter more than enough? 

I don't even know what half these icons are. There's Facebook and Twitter of course, followed by... Happy Robot? Gee Plus? Indiana Interest? Inchworm? Proctologist Network?  Depends Media? Red Pee? Not-Twitter? I have no idea.

Jesus. It's clear to me that if I want to keep up with all this social media I'm gonna have to quite my job and devote a full twelve hours per day to updating my status on all these sites. It'll be more than worth it though, to let everyone know what TV show I'm watching or that I just got my hair cut.
