When I go on ‘Linked In’, I’m often reminded to congratulate an old friend of mine for having been in business for x years.
The problem is, this old friend passed on some time ago…
Today I was reminded by Facebook that it was a relative’s birthday. Again, this person has been dead for some time. Nevertheless, I followed the link and found that no fewer than five of this person’s ‘friends’ had wished him a happy birthday.
So not only does the Internet suffer from linkrot and media rot, it also suffers from a lack of sanity checking.
