  1. Now evensome police forces use Twitter and Facebook in some countries. This text made me think that how we were meeting up with our friends before we had mobile phones. It was possible at least, wasn’t it? But now it is easier with the use of it of course. I hope that those companies do not miss any possible higher revenue. Thank you for this interesting post Nida Zaidi.
