I'm completely out on the loop on fads. It's not that I'm "out of it", but I'm not a novelty seeker. I've also largely stopped consuming mass media, particularly entertainment.

I think I'm missing out on opportunities. I only get informed by friends and family now, since I don't have coworkers. I need a connection to the fad-interested people.

I use twitter to connect with like minded people and I use Reddit quite a bit for promotion of my site. These allow me to somewhat understand cultural shifts, but for understanding fads you need to be fully plugged in.

The best way to understand these fads is to join the online communities for them. However this is a time sink and you will need to decide if it's worth your time to follow these fads. They are fads for a reason instead of lasting phenomena, right?
