You’ve probably signed up for a handful of different social networks over the years.

If you’re anything like me, the new year is a time for refreshing and changing things. Something I like to do for my phone is to check if there’s now a better way of doing things, so I don’t get stuck using old clunky tools when something better has cropped up.
