When face book crashed, i had absolutely no idea and i think every ones reaction would be pretty traumatic only because, everyone tends to use face book as a social connection and although no one wants to admit to pretty much being addicted to face book everyone is. I think if face book was to disappear right off the Internet it would be the hottest talking phenom out there, i think my reaction would be that its very boring with out face book but no where near to reacting as if the world was ending. I actually think that it might be a good thing for everyone to get a break from it. Face book was one of the smartest idea's invented out there by far, it has everything beat.

Social Networking

My first experience with social networking was msn, absolutely everyone had it and that was the "new cell phone" before everyone had cell phones everyone had msn and that's how you communicated with all your friends. But now the new social networking is all about face book and cell phones, to make plans or talk to someone or even share what your doing in your life its all done over the common the cell phone and face book, now they have even made cell phones so you can atomically take a picture and send it over your phone to face book or even across the world within a matter of seconds.  I believe that most of these social networking sits and utensils are not being used properly because, now all you hear about is people posting inappropriate things all over the Internet. Even all bullying now is done threw the social networking communications because, everyone has become to wimpy and adapted to hiding behind a computer or a cell phone to cyber bully someone else, i think that the world would be allot easy er/happier and simpler if these social networks were not created.

My first flattning experince

My first flattening experience was when, we were taught about how McDonald's drive threw windows there orders were not only taken by the people working inside of McDonald's but, the orders were being taken from people who could be across the world, this is called outsourcing, this is something that intrigued me. The ten flattners are .. Collapse of the Berlin wall, Netscape, Work flow software,Outsourcing,off shoring also there is Open source,Supply-chaining,In sourcing,Informing and The steroids. Another experience was when we went to Mexico and before you get on the plane you are able to check in online before you board the plane.  You are able to do any of these anywhere at any time. I think that home sourcing is something allot of people do not realise is out there, i sure didn't until i was just told. Its definitely something people forget about easily and don't realise when they are ordering from McDonald's or calling for reservation's. I think home sourcing is an upgrade and pretty cool.
