Social media has taken over,

Social media has taken over, well it is essentially people socialising but through their computers, so it's not really surprising, it's something human beings in general are known for doing, so this so called revolution was inevitable, with that said, I have had my hiccups using social media as a viable revenue source, whether it be for a project ( Compuchenna ) or anything, it can be rather difficult, and that's because most people on these things are only interested in talking and very little else. Anyway, great stats, it opened my mind to a number of things, I was unaware of.
