    I'll share two anecdotes. Recently my son was touring university open days. He posted where e was going in hs FB status and was deluged with offers of help and alcohol. He leveraged the network. My Dad, who's not so mobile, loves seeing what the youngsters are up to. He can talk to them because he's in touch.
