I am not comfortable with the use of social media as I am not sufficiently familiar with it on a technical level to be confident in its use. However, I have made a New Year's resolution to use "snail mail" for campaigning. I hope that the impact of a handwritten letter arriving on a desk will be greater than a comment on a Facebook page. So, my 2020 target is one a week...

I'm interested in #5: Do not use any social media as it is corroding. We have a Facebook page, which seems to be successful; what do you mean by corroding?
