Courtsey of Wikipedia

DO WE REALLY NEED ANOTHER????!!!!!

The answer is no. Is it about money? Probably. That’s what this world revolves around, right? To some it does. If you have a profile on 75% of these sites, I’m sure all your information is out there waiting for the hackers to come gobble you up.

After reading an article about how Google had to shut down invites for 6 hours is absolutely ridiculous. Does it surprise me? Not really. It’s just like anything else that comes out in this world. People crave it for about 2 weeks then it dies down. (Example: Movies, Books, New Cars, Purses, Watches. The list could go on and on)

Whoop-tea-do!
