How many more do I need to join???

So I got this email today... Hello, someone liked your blog at http://conch-to-be.blogspot.com and sent you an invitation to http://purebloggers.com .

Sign up for free now and join the biggest blogger and companies network!
 Have you gotten it? If so, (or even if not) why do I want it or care? I mean yet ANOTHER social network? I joined bloggers networking thingy sometime ago and the "friends" I make there are not even visiting my real blog! I am on Twitter and have a LinkedIn account. What does that do for me? I have friends on Goodreads (which fortunately has the benefit of helping me keep track of my library although I should enter more of them) But what is the point? To get me to sign up for more stuff so that more companies can track whatever I am interested in or buying?? I don't buy (haha! I don't buy it!) that it's connecting me to more readers anymore. I don't think if I add Facebook to my list of "I-should-have-my-smiling-face-here-too!" websites that I'll be that much more connected to the outside world. I'm fine with my 218 friends social networking here in my little corner of the world Companies-who-just-want-to-sell-me-more-stuff-I-don't-need. I'm just fine! Now leave me A-Lone.
Now here's a picture to remind me of what's good and lovely in the world.
And it don't cost a thing.
