    I wish I found this site and joined it earlier to see the rise of PlanetC during its best days. But I guess I wasn't born in the right time :( :p

    Sadly so. I have very conflicting views on social media considering I work in the industry. A big part of me wishes it never moved on from anything more than online forums.

    I don't do any social media, much prefer to read a book than to see people trying to make out their lives are perfect! :p

    I asked one of my staff what he'll do to keep himself occupied during lockdown, he said his wife bought 4 large tins of paint recently!
    The look on his face told me he's decorating against his will! :lol:lol:lol

    I feel like social media itself is not a problem but rather how people use it. There's a fair amount of toxicity in everything but it's amplified on social media because everyone can see it. The product itself was made for good and I think we should be putting more blame on the people who exploit it rather than the people who made it.

    About 2 weeks ago i volunteered my services with the NHS, I'm an expert in chemicals and thought I'd be useful during the pandemic.
    After being vetted and passing, I've been asked to do some hospital cleaning! :lol:lol:lol

    Which I'll do with pride! :D
