  • A Royally Social Wedding

    Royal Wedding, Kate & WillsAs much of the world knows, two particular people were married at Westminster Abbey today.  Whether or not you attended in person, watched on TV, or glanced at newspaper headlines, it was hard to ignore a certain royal wedding.

    I’m not qualified to comment on the religious, historic, political or fashion implications of the event.  But I must confess great interest in the real-time reaction to the event as expressed — not by professional journalists and commentators — but by ordinary folks via social media.  Whether you chose to follow Twitter or Facebook, there was a lively commentary that ranged from hilarious to touching. Equally, for those of you who didn’t want any part of the hoopla, the Huffington Post published tips on How to Block the Royal Wedding on Twitter and Facebook.
