Virtual footprints

2 Comments

We hear a lot about carbon footprints these days but what about virtual footprints?

I’ve just signed up to another site which requires a username and password 

I was thinking how many websites or email accounts I have subscribed to or created in my years of internet surfing 

I don’t think I could count how many places I have signed up to, there are so many 

I have three Yahoo accounts, two Hotmail addresses, and various other defunct ones that I stopped using for one reason or another 

Not to mention blogging sites, shopping sites, Facebook, Twitter, LOADS of dating sites that I no longer go on and, oh the list is endless……

I know I have joined places, created handles and then forgotten all about them.  But my username, or account, is probably still there, floating about in the ether….

I’m surprised the internet is still working, the amount of handles of mine there are out there

I bet you are the same

I swear that’s why it is slow sometimes.   The internet is almost full up!!!

Imagine if that happens?  Imagine if the internet became full?

We’d have to go back to using pen and paper, snail mail, using the phone – TALKING!!!

I don’t think I could cope!
