By being absent online, you're simply closing your eyes and hoping it's not there. Whether you like it or not, someone is ...

In October, social networking traffic in the UK surpassed porn and has continued to trend this way. Why must you care? The reason this statistic matters is to show the sheer popularity of new media.
