Final Note

Using social media in the bathroom

This final note today, which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, but still does kinda make you go ‘ewww.’

A survey out from the social media consulting firm NM Incite says almost a third of people 18-24 — that is, the fastest growing group of social media users — do so in the bathroom. It’s too much information, in the very real sense of the phrase.

It does also get us to another study from the independent warranty provider Square Trade, which shows 9 percent of iPhones wind up getting dropped in the toilet.

I’m not makin’ it up, people — I’m just reporting it.
