Big Brother is watching you…If you know me, and are reading this, you are probably on a social networking site; I am on quite a few, so most people say that I am addicted, how rude. So, why are we still making mistakes? - I don’t get it.Social Networking is more popular now than it ever was, with different sites reaching out to a variety of people – Facebook, Bebo, Hi5, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Myspace – to name a just few. People want to find old friends, connect with new acquaintances or make new contacts; you need people to locate you, so there is usually no anonymity.Writer and blogger – Shea said on Twitter recently@Sheamus: Social media is the virtual Big Brother; people have a habit of forgetting they're on camera 24/7. Be smart.It’s all over the Internet about the high number of employers and prospective employers checking social networking sites to research job candidates or to check up on what employees are saying or doing.

There was a big group of us staying in caravans, we had 6 caravans in total and we all spent most of the time in the sea, either body boarding, surfing or kayaking. The weather was mostly very hot, so my boyfriend Dav decided it was time to invest in a pair of flip-flops. He had never owned any before, as he himself [...]

I had to wonder; am I clueless or is he gormless? I don’t get it.What on earth were 2400 different people going to do on a plinth for an hour? How will they make it appealing - or will it just be embarrassing? After all, this is supposed to be an image of themselves, and a representation of the whole of humanity, otherwise known as ‘the portrait of Britain.’"Through elevation onto the plinth, and removal from the common ground, the body becomes a metaphor, a symbol… In the context of Trafalgar Square with its military, valedictory and male historical statues to specific individuals, this elevation of everyday life to the position formerly occupied by monumental art allows us to reflect on the [...]
