That’s what they call it.
Remember the days when ‘social networking’ was something you did at company functions, golf days and the like? Events probably equally as facile as Facebook it should be said. The Social networking website largely popularised by students is currently having it’s fifteen minutes of fame in the online world alongside MySpace and Bebo, arguably upstaging blogging, instant messenger services, web forums and personal sites.
I originally signed up as a Facebook member just over a year ago whilst studying at Nottingham Trent University. My first introductory glimpses of it were by observing fellow students in IT rooms glossing over large pictures of other students apparently ‘having fun’, pouting for cameras on student nights out, pulling ‘zany’ faces and the rest. At times there seemed to be hardly a single student that was doing anything legitimate, but rather browsing this new phenomenon instead. Anyhow I noted that many fellow students were using the place so, being a person who has always been interested in the latest developments on the Internet, decided to take the plunge.
The Tracks of My Tears
Hi, my name is Stuart Frew and I began The Tears of a Clown in August 2007 after experimenting with a few online ideas as a repository for my thoughts and words. My favoured themes can be located below as can a full site search and historical archives for the site. I like to talk about sport (Hibernian FC in particular), music, history and travel, amongst many diverse topics. I’m trained in Psychology but no, sadly, I can’t read your mind.
Please take a look around and feel free to leave a comment or two. I always attempt to reply to visitor’s contributions. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read the site.
