What is the first thing people do when the country is hit by the biggest earthquake in 25 years?

Turn on the news? Ring friends or family? Check their house is still standing?

well, the answer is none of the above. The first thing people do when Britian has an earthquake is go on facebook.

Yes, that social network site that everyone is hooked too. Within hours I had requests to join various groups such as ‘I survived the Lincoln earthquake’. Even worse, people’s status names where changing by the minute and becoming earthquake related.
