It may seem like I have something against Facebook but that's not the case. It is now, and is likely to remain for some time, the number one social networking site in the world and frankly reaches more people than I can ever hope to. But it's the 'reach' part that is causing me concern.
Why hasn't politics - more specifically, voting and influence - transferred into the realm of smartphones and micro-thinned tablets? It makes no sense. There is an obvious social disconnect here.
Maybe outsourcing isn't so bad after all? Brands wouldn't be able to offer the customer service that consumers expect if they didn't work with an expert in the business and it's also creating thousands of jobs that are just getting better and better. Don't knock it.
Our social networks have become part of all walks of our life. LinkedIn was once your 'go-to' site for connecting with colleagues, but now the paths of our digital personas cross over, making Instagram and Facebook as important as WhatsApp, Snapchat and Twitter.
Facebook is the site where social media users are most likely to have suffered harassment or abuse - reflecting its much higher usage than other social media sites. Nearly two thirds (74%) have experienced this type of activity on Facebook with Twitter next at 12% and then YouTube at 9%.
Last December's acquisition of Topsy Labs by Apple was unexpected and many in the tech industry raised their eyebrows at the reported £122 million price tag.
Context has been thrown away for many people online and in its place is a new and dangerously ignorant reality. By the time art collector Dasha Zhukova issued her grovelling apology on Tuesday afternoon for having been photographed sitting on a Bjarne Melgaard chair in the form of a black woman, millions of people around the world had already got a completely wrong opinion of her.
Sometimes everyday experiences, even seemingly trivial things like social networking, can be used for spiritual growth. Instead of going with your first reaction (to get upset and angry), taking a few deep breaths and seeing the larger picture can turn around a situation that feels otherwise "stuck".
This 'friendship paradox' was the surprising result of a 1991 study into the properties of social networks. Sociologists have since seen this in evidence in a wide variety of situations. On average, whether it's Facebook, Twitter or sexual partners your friends, followers or partners all have (or have had) more friends, followers or partners than you.
You've got to feel sorry for celebrities these days. They really miss out on the finer things in life. Things like the majesty of the London Underground, self-service machines at Tesco, and - of course - Tinder. Wouldn't societies most judged love to do a little judging themselves?
Today I panicked. I'm not sure why, but I decided to change my Twitter background. Perhaps I'm still drunk from Christmas or feeling frivolous at the advent of 2014. I didn't have myself down as one of those folk who bought into the 'new year, new you' brand of thinking... I guess we all have the power to surprise even ourselves
I have always believed that anything is possible and that if you really want something, you'll find a way to make it happen. It's this very belief that made me think it would be a good idea to attempt to get around the world in 14 days.
In many ways, Channel 4 has accomplished something that very rarely happens in the mainstream media. It has managed to create a three way dynamic that forces us to question ourselves. It has asked us to watch ourselves watching the residents of Benefits Street. Now that I can see that, I'm not sure I like what I see.
Online abuse is more akin to a slow poison that continually erodes confidence, security, and peace of mind. Dealing with it is not easy, either for the target or investigative bodies, but we must get better at recognising that it is as "real" as offline abuse.
If you are a woman who wants to live a profitable and rewarding life, then go into business ... your own, not someone else's. Even though I'm fully aware of the benefits of 'running your own show' and made the decision to do so long ago, I'm still inspired by the stories of others who have done the same.
I'm not even sure what it is that I'm addicted to. Perhaps it's the constant access to content that might make me laugh or cry, or maybe it's the daily contest to see if anything I say on Twitter or Facebook will get a reaction, or perhaps it's just the feeling it gives me of always having something to do. Either way, it can't be healthy.
