No Facebook?

How did people let each other know what was happening in their lives before the social networks were created? I mean - how weird must it have been to write long letters and sit for hours over a kitchen table swapping news, rumors and war stories? Nowadays it is so much easier, faster and non-committing. How non-committing it is is a question, particularly in the light of the recent developments in Germany, where Angela Merkel is planning to put a ban on using information contained in personal social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Tuenti) in hiring practices - read the full article here.

However, this is too serious of a topic for a Friday blog post, so have a little fun with this attempt to simulate what Facebook entries might have looked like in the fairly distant past. Have a great weekend!
