Meet and Seat: A truly dreadful idea from KLM

Probably the only place you can now be free from "social networking" is on a plane. I savour the hours of peace, without even a phone call, text, email or friend request. And I don't feel obliged to chat to the guy in the next seat if I don't want to.

All that could change if Dutch airline KLM's Meet & Seat programme takes off.  It allows you to check out social profiles of other passengers and plonk yourself next door to someone with similar business interests. Does anyone, I wonder, think this is a good idea. It sounds just about as appealing as Russian roulette.
