That's if you find time to read anything at all beyond emails, texts and tweets on your phone.

New wedding dessert trend forgoes cake's outer icing layer
Daily Mail
The traditional wedding cake is typically frosted with white icing, but if a new trend takes hold, it's about to get a serious make-under. More and more brides are opting to serve 'naked cakes' — pared-down creations that forgo an outer layer of buttercream so that the texture of the cake and the colors inside are put on show.

By Scott Steinberg

But as widespread as services like Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn have become, basic rules of etiquette and business conduct still apply.
