Huw is no doubt responding to the needs of the Young Ones, Dave.
Either those, or the idle chavs
with nothing better to do than fritter away their semi-waking hours (starting around midday, usually) with so-called "social networking".
You know, important messages like:- "I think I'll have Heinz Spaghetti for lunch today"*!
Everyone's at it, apparently. You know, those we all admire so much. Like "celebrities", politicians, journalists, footballers ... all sorts of "real" (or should that be "extremely sad") folk, in fact.
What's the point? None at all!
To be fair (?) I should imagine that, as far as this forum is concerned, it allows you to alert your friends (eh?) to new and exciting posts. "Hey Dude, I've just made a really cool post on the ebme forum"!
What the more paranoid amongst us may care to bear in mind are the dangers involved in leaving digital footprints here, there, and everywhere. No doubt all those Tweets
get stored on a hard-disc in some dark Data Warehouse someplace ... just waiting to come back and bite you in the butt sometime, who knows (cares?) when?
Did I say that back in 2010? Me? No way!
But just imagine all that, er, trivia
filling up those RAID drives. I can only begin to wonder at the numbers involved.
PS: what about those (of us) born before 1960?
