Facebook? Pintarest? LinkedIn? Twitter? What's next?!

What is the purpose of the new Facebook Twitter, Pintarest and LinkedIn buttons? I don't want my posts on these forums for the world to see! I don't think any of us would! People here see us at our absolute worst! And AgingCare now can let any of us publish our words to the world?!

FF, you are right about the age of magazines. My dr has a tv with health info, magazines but most are geared toward men like outdoor hunting, then there is wall street type magazine, people, and something for women that has to do with decorating the home. Yes, I take out my cell and web surf.

A lot of employers are banning cell phones. The director of a nearby nursing home told all his staff to put them away, and if they can't they need to leave and not come back.

cwillie, LOL about reading the posters. I remember decades ago the standard joke about old National Geographic magazines in the doctor's office. Now a days the joke is People magazines from 6 months ago.

You are right, seems like everyone is glued to their cellphone, no matter what age.... except me, I don't have the capability to see what Kim Kardashian is doing at the moment. I have to keep alert in case my name or my parent's name is called. No multi-tasking here.

Ha ha ha FF, haven't you ever had one of those appointments where they keep you waiting forever? Sometimes it seems so long I'll even read the posters on the wall about whooping cough, the benefits of breastfeeding and the warning signs of STDs. It seems that most local of the doctors offices have done away with magazines now though in favour of TVs, and the waiting public are all glued to their phones. The holdouts are usually places like dentists or optometrists, or the labs and diagnostics attached to hospitals. When I was waiting for my last mammogram I had my choice of several magazines that were at least 10 years old ;)

Say what, caregivers have time to read a magazine while in a doctor's office with their elderly parent??? Not me, I am busy filling out paperwork and more paperwork, or helping my parent with this or that. The distractions are constant.

Also, I stopped reading magazines in a doctor's office years ago after reading that you might pick up a magazine that someone had sneezed into a few minutes prior.... oh gross.... when you think about it, many of the people in the doctor's office are sick, thus germs are lying in waiting for you to browse through that magazine.

I can understand our concern for privacy, yet many are on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin. Never was on Facebook nor Twitter. Was on Linkedin and got very strange mail sent to the office, so I quickly deleted myself.... I was thinking about all the information that I had on that website due to my work, since Linkedin was a networking business site. My gosh, someone could create a resume from the material. I wanted to jump into the witness protection program !!

Download the selected sections of 6 magazines here, scan them for malware and viruses, then skim through.

Jessie, Countrymouse, Sandwich, Windytown, Blannie and others are specifically quoted. In earlier magazines, quotes weren't attributed to specific posters, but I haven't skimmed through all 6 magazines entirely - just did some quick skimming.

So, Jessie, et al - you're getting your 15 minutes of print fame.

Whether anyone can identify you by your screen names is your guess. I think I'd be changing my screen name, though, if I thought family could identify me.

CWillie, well, you could always watch the Trump if you want to hear intelligent conversation (choking on my chuckles as I write this)!

I was thinking more in terms of if Suzie123 is being investigated for neglecting her mother, and authorities become aware that she frequents this forum, then her rants about wishing mom would just hurry up and die could potentially be used as evidence against her.

I like that comment about Big Brother becoming Corporate Big Brother, it opens up a whole debate about the nature of government and whether politicians are in the pockets of corporate interests... I think my brain is getting starved for intelligent conversation lol.
