Remember Facebook? I don’t suppose anyone else gives it a thought, now everyone’s gone over to Livejournal, but for me and my generation it was a godsend. Knowing that all my embarrassing rants would disappear into grateful oblivion with a matter of days, that I would never be able to link to any of my posts, that there was virtually no nesting structure for comment threads and that the site was constantly reformatting in attempts to hoover up personal data and maximise advertising revenue... That lack of functionality was just what I needed to get me out of the house.
We shall not see its like again!
(Oh, and Happy New Year, everyone!)
