Social media: Never used it, never will

by allthoughtswork

I’ll climb on any soap box at the drop of a hat and give you an earful about the cerebral evils of social media. The closest I come to chasing that dragon is You Tube but 98% of the videos I watch on there are instructive and educational. The rest I get from Duncan.
