Social Media and Answering to the Mother-in-Law

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hFor all that there is to despise about it, you have to love social media for at least one aspect – it gets people talking – err typing.

I was blissfully and willingly late to the world of social media. I looked upon the likes of Myspace and Facebook with great suspicion in the early days, and I still do.

If not for this little newspaper, I doubt I would even have a Facebook account. The Independent also has a Twitter account, though I confess, I know nothing of the Twitterverse, and I am far too verbose to try and limit my expressions to under 140 characters, so I have avoided it aside from establishing an account for The Independent that is automatically updated with whatever we put on Facebook, so it's like Twitter doesn't exist, and that's fine for this old hippie.
