Social Media

Do you do Facebook or Twitter?  I don't.  Heck, I just started blogging not too long ago and didn't start out very good with it.

I know people do Myspace,  Facebook and now Twitter.  I've gotten a couple of invitations in the past to friend some people on Facebbok but I didn't want to.  I really have all I can do to keep up with the blog.  I know a lot of people connect with people from their high school but my feeling kinda is, if I didn't talk to them in high school why would I communicate with them now.

Twitter I really don't get.  People seem to really love it.  Although I know there are times like in a crisis people can get the word out fast.  I guess that is a good thing.

I am just behind the times or maybe it's just my fear of trying new things ;-).  Makes me wonder what the next new thing is that I won't be trying. Do you Facebbook or Twitter?  What is the appeal for you?

I do facebook. With my family so far away I find it an easy tool to keep in touch with. My Mum came from a family of 10 children so there are a lot of cousins - most of which are overseas.

I do follow a few people on twitter but I don't post a lot of tweets. It is a quick way to get a message out to several people at the same time so I understand why some people find it appealing.

I don't spend a lot of time in either place. I barely have time for the blog, though I am trying to be better about that.

I like Facebook. Twitter I only use when I've added something new to my etsy store. I don't really have the hang of Twitter.

I'm at Facebook, but only because a fellow blogging friend asked me to, 2 weeks ago...but I don't get the appeal either...I prefer blogging or the use of emails to communicate. Maybe it will grow on me, but I don't think so and Twitter has no place in my life!

I joined Facebook because my son asked me to. But we don't use it to communicate! Some of my former students have signed on, but I don't really do anything with it.

I like my blog. I like reading other people's blogs. I don't get Twitter or MySpace or some of the other conventions of social media. I dont' even own a cell phone! LOL
