I certainly do to see using the social networking aspect while sailing.
If you do not like it then fine, you do not have to use it but do not disparage others for using it. Yes, we get it, you like to do things the old fashioned way.
Nope, more then happy to use new technology. But you will find, once you get out here that the new technology has it's limitations, and will get you in big trouble in a hurry. Get just a little further away and all the social networking things don't work any more. You actually have to have live, face to face encounters.
Funny I read a business story how the younger generation was having to be trained on how to use the telephone.
There are consultants, charging 1800 bucks a day to coach the younger folks on effective communication skills on the phone and in person.
Yep, some of the old ways still work. Look up once in awhile, you may see the sun set.
