Volker posted his preferred methods of being contacted on Twitter today, which rang true with myself and reminded me of a couple of incidents of late:
- A friend of Karen's wanted to contact our photographer friend. From what we can work out they did so via his Facebook profile, which I'm guessing turned up via a Google for his name. But he no longer checks Facebook and they've now concluded "He didn't get back in touch, so we've gone elsewhere". They should have asked for his phone number.
- A friend of mine used an @jakehowlett "mention" on Twitter to tell me something of relative importance. Luckily I happened to see it. It should have been an email, SMS or phone call though really.
From my own point of view, unless I've verbally told somebody something I can only assume they might (or might not) have gotten the message.
