Here is a summary of the key points from Friday 10 December with Geoff Carter on The Bay 102.8 FM
A great way to give to charity and be green. Some good sites for e-cards are:
Free – but make sure you are not inundated with advertisements etc.
Remember to send not just to friends, family and all business contacts but also all those you meet networking.
2. Donate to charity instead of buying presents
For example, with WaterAid, £12 buys two water taps and £50 buys a water pump. See http://shop.wateraid.org/.
For other charities see www.presentaid.org/
3. Dealing with you email over the holiday
Top three tips to reduce the email stress.

4. Keep safe and private on social networking sites Don’t boast about what Santa gave you as that encourages cyber crime. Try to make sure you avoid appearing in those silly party photos on Facebook etc. Make sure you are not tagged in other people’s photos. Check your Facebook Privacy Settings carefully and select who you want to give access to for your photos. With children make sure they are properly protected from prying eyes and not on social networks for too long. There is life outside the world of computer games and social networking.
