I don’t think I do agree.I'm inclined to agree. We have made ourselves incredibly reliant on mobile phones & social media..
Jim’s thread persuaded me to revisit the disappeared person case that I was interviewed about over 20 years ago. It’s pretty clear from the website and Facebook pages thathos family knew he was missing on the night he went missing.
I think we were far more diligent about telling people where we were going and when we’d be back before we had mobiles and social media. If someone disappeared for 24 hours in the 80s the reaction would have been the same.
