Social media such as Facebook is the only socializing (along with this Forum) that I've been doing for quite some time now.
It keeps me in touch with people that I enjoy communicating with. Like many other things in life, there are stupid people but manly friendly people. It's amazing how many messages I see from people all over the place and end up getting them as e-mails sometimes from people thousands of miles away. Ah technology !
Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
