1:30 PM -- London's Daily Mail tells the tale of two young ladies whose social networking skills are well advanced. Their real-life skills? Need some work...

  • Two girls aged ten and 12 who were trapped in a storm drain used Facebook to get help instead of calling the emergency services.

    The girls updated their status on their mobile phones to say they were trapped instead of dialing triple '0', the Australian emergency services number.

    Firefighters eventually rescued the pair after being contacted by one of their male school friends.

If they were actually drowning, I can only suppose they would have Twittered.
