Tried to answer this “Plinky Prompt”, but it’s not connecting me to WordPress at the moment.
“Has social networking – Facebook, Twitter, and everything in between – actually improved your relationships?”
I’ll answer it here anyway.
I’ve never used Twitter, haven’t felt the need. Maybe I’ll get around to it eventually.
As for Facebook, not sure I would say it has improved things in any way. It did help me keep in touch with my two youngest, when they were away at university in Manchester. Also now as one son still lives in Manchester and the other quite a way from me (I don’t drive). If it wasn’t for keeping in touch with family on a regular basis, I don’t think I would still have an account.
I get tired of the drivel some folk put on there. Every minutia of their lives in detail. So much so that I have cut my friends list by half recently.
I’m also concerned about the privacy aspect too, even though I have all the right settings in place.
I read today that FB has been forced to turn off facial recognition tagging in Europe and has to remove all collected data from such. That can only be a good thing methinks.
