There's no such thing as a free lunch but there are ways to benefit from the tech tyrants offerings.
I have spent years lambasting social media.
There's no doubt it is a sewer occupied by keyboard warriors who feel their digital anonymity gives them license to act in a reprehensible way.
That's a danger, particularly for young people or those with self-esteem issues. However there is another side to social media that I am beginning to enjoy.
