The internet and digital technology has changed many aspects of our lives for better and for worse. But what is your view of social media? Have you embraced it, or do you avoid it preferring to stick to traditional forms of communication? David Edwards of Wangi Wangi in New South Wales, Australia, came across these reflections which he thought Evergreen readers would find amusing.
For those of my generation who do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists.
I am trying to make friends outside Facebook while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers- by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day. I also listen to their conversations, give them the “thumbs up” and tell them I “like” them. And it works just like Facebook!
I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist.
