VIRTUALLY AN IDIOT

From THE MAIL:

The Pope yesterday warned youngsters not to choose a virtual world on the internet over real-life experiences. He insisted they were in danger of alienation and detachment from reality by excessive use of digital media. Although Pope Benedict XVI did not name sites such as Facebook or Twitter, he alluded to ‘sharing’, ‘friends’ and ‘profiles’ – jargon commonly used on the social networking sites.

The 83-year-old leader of the Roman Catholic Church claimed it was a mistake to seek more virtual friends than real ones when so many internet users created public profiles that were either self-indulgent or plainly false.

COMMENT: Ah! He's obviously checked out Mimi's profile.
