State, a new social network

I stumbled upon and joined State.com a few weeks ago. I have waited to write this blog in hopes that something “profound” would happen on this “up-and-coming”social network (founded in 2013). I found State through a satire video “No one cares about your social media posts” that @Mashable shared.

ImageThe video is brilliant because it illustrates all of the ridiculous things that happen before, during, and after we post on social media. “ I wanna post about how great this coffee is but I can’t think of a funny way to say it”.

At the end of the video we are left with: “Time to use another part of your brain” and a visit State.com. 

So. What is State.com and does it help eliminate some stupidity of the use of social media?

State may be a step into the right direction for a way to share opinions. The platform needs some serious tuning to allow for quick “stating” and meaningful dialogue.
