I realised that I had not held (or shared) a photograph for years - they were all on my computer, same with my boys .... I also found it impossible to get my boys to write to their grandparents, because they were always glued to Facebook, and only ever email or message friends and family. I am a bit wary of Facebook - it is great - but many people feel it is too open for them and their family and closest friends.
It sort of became apparent to me that you keep your friends on Facebook, business colleagues on LinkedIn
but where do you keep your family - especially older relatives and youngsters who are too young for Facebook?
Finerday was born ....
Hope you don't mind me joining in.

Could I ask you please ... you mentioned your older relatives, would they look at family photos and/or join in an easy Live Video conversations if they could see it on their TV?
I was lucky enough to be with Intel the other day and they showed me the new net top computers, the size of your hand, and very low priced, which will turn your TV into an internet device. They are very easy to set up - even I could do it - smiles ...
.... would your older relatives use something like this, with a simple wireless keyboard?
