Message in a Bottle: The Original Social Media?!

Harold Hackett has been sending messages in a bottle out to sea since 1996. Of the over 4,800 sent, he's received 3,100 responses from around the world, including Africa, Russia, Holland, and many others--not a bad ratio, if you ask us.

Thanks to this interesting hobby, Hackett has been achieving social media objectives in his own way for years: connecting with people around the world he would have otherwise never known.

He receives 150 Christmas cards a year from his wordly friends, and he loves connecting the old-fashioned way. He's chosen not to give out his number, because he fears the responses via letter would stop coming.

Watch him tell us in his own words.
