When social network fatigue sets in

Buzz and bandwagons usually lead to an oversaturation of a market before the bubble bursts and activity levels out at a sensible equilibrium. What happens when everything becomes a social network?

I have been getting frequent pings from Plaxo over the last six months or so, a service I stopped using a year or more ago. Looks like they are up to something new. Should I re-join before my invitations expire?

Plaxo has been through so many different variations, I don't know what to make of them!

Don't do it. Plaxo has (or once had) some value for keeping you and your contact's address books up to date.

Plaxo Pulse, the newer service, is like the world champion poster child for social network fatigue.
