Ask HN: Is “social network” a dirty term now?
2 points by olegious 9 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | discuss
Does the term "social network" bring up negative emotions in you? If so, is this a recent phenomenon or have you always felt that way?

Personally, I noticed that the term has generated more negative emotions as I have become more privacy and productivity focused, I'm wondering if others have experienced the same thing.
