And now the social networks are coming to the fore more and more as we deal with disasters and dangers.
It seemed almost instinctive to turn to Facebook to make comments of support or warning to friends as the tornadoes blasted through our area on Tuesday evening.
To find on the spot news and pictures from Tuscaloosa Alabama, I logged in to Twitter and search for “Tuscaloosa” The tweets from the tweeps were flying in. Hundreds of them. Some with pictures or videos or links to other information. Quite astonishing!
Its certainly fascinating to observe the growth of the Social Networks and the ways that we as users are finding to utilise them.
