You may have too many things running at the same time. Log off of everything...even your profile. Then log back on. See if that helps. And also you may have downloading some things...if so then that will make your computer run a lot slower. Try clearing up some the space on your computer

Question by shahrizat: How did you spend your free time before the Age of the Internet?
... at least, if you are old enough to remember how it was back then!

Does the Internet monopolize most of your free time now? Or do you have a way to allocate enough time for your other hobbies/family/friends… etc.

And I’m not saying that the Internet is a bad thing or anything. I’m just reflecting on how things were so different, before.

Hoping many would care to share!
Thank you everyone, for sharing your thoughts and spending some time on my question. I particularly enjoyed reading the more detailed answers from P’quaint, Lucija, WillRogersWannabe and Anita, among others.

P’quaint, like you, I was an avid reader too. It used to be about 4 to 6 novels in a month. Now I find that I could stretch one novel for an entire month! It seems like I do most of my reading online these days but oh, how I used to LOVE curling into my favorite armchair for hours on end with one book or another.

Lucija, my heart goes out to you. Yes I do know how the internet really can be one of our only connections to the world outside. In fact I thank the internet for bringing me closer to friends a long distance away, one such as you. We wouldn’t have “met” otherwise, hey?
Mr. WillRogers, sir. Thank you so much for sharing. Your post reminded me of what I used to LOVE to do as a little schoolgirl, ages ago. I loved nothing better than to spend many quiet nights outside, lying atop my father’s old car, just watching the stars. I enjoyed trying to identify different constellations and individual stars. With my torchlight in hand to illuminate dozens of star maps and encyclopedias, I dreamed of being an astronaut, spacewalking under the glittering sky. Funny how I ended up so firmly grounded on earth as an architect.

How well do you need to know someone before adding them on LinkedIn?

I was at a conference a few weeks ago and met a lot of people. Is it ok to add someone on LinkedIn even if I only met them once and maybe spoke to for half an hour? Can I contact people whose presentations I have sat through but I didn't talk to long?

Best answer:

Answer by Smiling
Sure. Linked in is for building your business contacts. These are your business contacts.
Don't be upset if people don't respond. I'm not a fan of linked it, so sometimes it takes a long time for me to bother with signing in and approving people.
