Social-networkingLet’s talk about the use and abuse of social networking and before you say don’t you use social networking the answer is yes we do. But we don’t walk around with a smart phone or tablet and constantly tweet or post to any of the other mobile social networks. We use Facebook as way to stay in touch with our friends and family in the US. Twitter started out the same way but now we use it to promote this Blog and Jeff’s books. You must understand Jeff comes from a generation where you either waited till you got home or went over to your friend’s house and talked in person. Jeff has been in social situations where everybody is texting and he wonders what’s so important that it can’t wait. He would become bored with the other person if they kept texting about every little thing. He understand the business use but people should realize that unless you have a lie detecting app on your phone you can’t really tell the emotional meaning of the comments being texted to you. Jeff has probably only used text twice in his life he doesn’t really use his cell phone he has it for the original reason he got his first one emergency situations. Jeff also realizes this is probably a generational thing although he’s very tech savvy. Jeff just doesn’t really care what you’re doing at this moment and thinks texting while there are people having a conversation with you is rude. But he is old so you’ll have to take that into consideration. I could go on manly because it’s fun to make fun of humans and there electronic gadgets. They better hope the power grids and internet never collapse because they wouldn’t have a clue how to talk to each other. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin.

    as you know I do not like face book but I am guilty of texting – that is when my phone is turned on which is not very often it seems as though people don’t answer phones but they will answer texts that is why I do it.
