There is a vast difference between me scanning the news over my first and second cup of coffee and occasionally commenting on same (yes, ElReg contains news), and the idiots using so-called "social" networking.
Yesterday, I was parked outside my Wife's ophthalmologist when a minivan pulled up alongside. The 6-ish year old lad in the back was all excited, "C'mon, Mom! Let's go!", apparently he likes his eye doctor ... or the lollipop that he'll be allowed at the end of the visit. ANYway, the Mom in question was busy thumbing her cell phone and said "We'll go in after I've tweeted that we've arrived at the eye doctor's" ... They came out right after my Wife, and sure enough, before driving away the Mom tweeted all her "friends" that they were leaving the clinic now ... The mind absolutely boggles.
 The Wife needed to get her eyes dilated; normally she drives herself.
