leaving facebook

No, I’m not personally leaving Facebook. In fact, I unashamedly LOVE it. I love sharing photos when I’m out and about, reading what my friends are up to, checking in at various locations and sharing status updates. I’m not embarrassed…

A Picture Says 1000 Words

A picture says 1000 words. Or so they say. But whether you believe the clichés or not, there’s no denying the fact that images make a blog post (particularly a long one like this) look friendlier, easier to read and…

how many registered users on facebook

One of the things I love so much about Facebook is the fact that it is so open (compared with other platforms) about its numbers. This page on the Facebook website gives you figures relating to user numbers, time spent…

You can’t miss the news today – Ding Dong, the witch Bin Laden is dead. It seems to counter human nature to celebrate someone dying, yet I’d imagine most of us are united in thinking “about time,” this dude was…

I might have said, upon the launch of the iPad 2, that I definitely didn’t want. Like, ever. Under any circumstances. Well, ahem… I might be indulging in a little humble pie this afternoon as I sort of, maybe… well……

#100factsaboutme is (at 9:30pm UK time on 20th March 2011) a global trending topic on Twitter. This confuses me because Twitter is limited to 140 characters. But, I feel like I am missing out, so am going to embark upon…

My name is Stacey and I’m addicted to Dexter. There. I said it. Granted, there is probably something wrong in the fact that I am marginally infatuated with a fictional serial killer (albeit one who only kills the bad guys)…

Ever wanted to acquire 30,000 followers in an hour? Well, we have the answer. Nope, I’m trying to sell you some spam infested service whereby I line up my army of faceless bots (all incidentally ‘Tweeting’ automated messages from the…

So, the Government has just announced the biggest budget cuts in a generation here in the UK, that (over the next few years) could leave literally thousands upon thousads of public sector workers unemployed. All this comes, let’s add, in…

Personally, I am quite selective with Facebook. With Twitter, I am happy to follow, be followed by and converse with people I have never met with whom I share some common interests. I think that particular platform lends itself well…
