Alone or together? The dilemma in social networking
A global survey has revealed that 23 percent of
Facebook users check their accounts five or more times every day. A
surprising fact, isnít it? It is obvious that social media websites
are taking over the Internet and that new users are signing up every
second. Social media sites are by far some of the fastest growing
businesses online. It seems that our generation cannot get enough of
social media and what it has to offer. No matter how many types of
social media sites are out there, new ones keep appearing and
capture our attention.
The mobile mania catches on
We are a nation madly in love with the mobile
phone. Although the purpose of using a mobile phone is to contact
someone in an emergency, we have found new ways to live with it.
From the lowly paid janitor to the highly paid corporate executive,
the mobile phone has become a virtual vade mecum (come with me).
Thorns on the Side
You may think that electric cars are a recent
fad, but they were around more than 100 years ago. So why did they
virtually disappear by the 1920s? One word - oil. The rise of the
gasoline engine ensured the rapid death of the electric car and
before long all vehicles were petrol or diesel-powered.
