I like the sound of the new phrase "digital diet" which is what we're all going to be on this year.
As the fashion swings away from social networking sites with our hundreds of "friends", most of whom are just online acquaintances, people will be craving the real thing, old-fashioned face-to-face contact with the people we really want to keep in touch with.
So where we started with pruning our Xmas card lists, this will continue into removing unwanted online "friends" and cutting back on the number of networking sites we frequent.
"You can be too connected," says Richard Watson, an author who calls himself a futurist. "Just as owning a mobile phone was once seen as a mark of sophistication, not owning one (or using one sparingly) is becoming a signal that a person has sorted out their priorites or has staff to take mundane calls."
So we can look forward to a return to hand-written letters, face-to-face socialising IRL (in real life), fountain pens, and more "Out of Office" messages.
