    Too Much Information - Social Media

    Social media, like Facebook or Twitter or even blogs, make it so easy nowadays to share every little detail of our lives, as young parents are often only too happy to share photos, updates & stories about their new children, but where do you draw the line?

    New York writer Blair Koenig had enough of this over sharing phenomenon & has started blogging about it & she joins Miriam this morning.


    (Blair is also the woman behind a very popular blog STFU, Parents –here in Ireland we can (almost) say it: it translates as Shut The Feck Up)
