NO. If I have your number, isn't that enough of a way to communicate?  

Not really cause phones can break so make sure to have their email at least.

 

I'm curious what Mu- could be. Until I know i shall call it MuvOn (a social media that will randomize your account every time you log on)

Mu- is just some weird thing called Musically where you post videos of your lip synching songs. That's literally it. It's basically Instagram, but 100% videos. I find it totally boring

I do have Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook. I only play around on Snapchat with my younger cousins, the lenses are fun sometimes. I don't use it for much though. I like Twitter, particularly when something significant is happening in the world, I like seeing the real time feedback and commentary from people. Facebook is okay, can get annoying as evidenced by my gripe the other night here. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 But it serves its purpose. My friends and I are so scattered, it's the only way we really keep in touch and stuff. Yes we email, too, and phone. But I like Facebook for bringing people together. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Oh and I do have Instagram. I like to throw a photo up if I run across something interesting in the course of my day. And I like following certain brands and celebs on there. Sometimes I do feel like I'm beginning to spread myself too thin on social media. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I've just noticed that on my official Beatles t-shirt the albums are all in chronological order except for 'Pepper' which for some reason has been switched so it comes after 'MMT'. It means that instead of 'Pepper' being bang in the middle, which would make sense legacy-wise, it's now 'Magical Mystery Tour '

Can't Apple get even the basics right without screwing it up? blue-meanie

I put my foot down after Twitter.  After Twitter, I said "I'm not jumping on whatever is next unless I absolutely have to."  No regrets.

 

I have Facebook, Twitter and Myspace.  The Twitter and Myspace accounts have been dormant for years.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

I visit my Facebook page two or three times a year, but only if I'm bored. This Forum is the only social media I need. When I want to connect with family and friends I...ready for this???...I know it seems odd...I call them on the phone and actually talk with them.

There, I said it. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I have an app that lets me have text conversations with family. We're all pretty awful on the phone.

I have a Facebook, Insta, Snapchat, and I used to have two Tumblrs but I got sad one day and deleted them. 

 

One of my pet peeves is that one of the headers on this site has a little kid John, a little kid Paul, a baby George and then a little kid Ringo. Why is George the only one where it's a baby picture of him? I think Joe should have used this picture of George for that particular frame.

That Richard bloke from the Something About The Beatles podcast. Why would you do a Beatles podcast if you dislike Paul so much? paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

People who say "this source is biased" like it actually means something or is a legitimate criticism. Listen: everyone and everything is biased.  Being biased is not a big deal. One can be biased and still tell the truth. Being biased and lying is a big deal.

Bias can also make you withhold the facts that don't go with your beliefs.

Like if Qendi released a study showing that rolling along in grass can give you the flu but can also repair your liver but then a newspaper takes their findings and put that rolling in grass, the new killer and detail how rolling in grass can get you the flu which can sometimes kill but unlikely and neglect to mention that rolling in grass can repair your liver.

It's been my experience that people say that when the source disagrees with them.

Yep. That type of bias is almost as bad as lying.
