    no, I have twitter and facebook and don't really care. Trying to get with it cause it seems to supposed to help with making money. I guess there are a couple others that sound promising I might give a try and they don't seem so facebook-ish.

    Yes, for a while when I started using Facebook it seemed very awesome, but now I've gotten sick of social media, as have many people. It can be a real time waster reading useless posts and following silly links for hours. It can really suck you in.

    i prefer live chat, its more like a real conversation, otherwise its just like leaving messages.

    Love Facebook - only use Twitter and others for marketing.

    No, I can't stand them.  I use Facebook only to play Words with Friends with a few gals I contact online.

    I just can't understand how we have become a society that has to post every trivial moment in one's day with a smart phone.

      I truly understand that duffsmom. If there is something good happening with us instead of enjoying it we put it on social networking sites.....

    I haven't, that's for sure.  I have a Facebook page because I thought someone might ask if I had one (and that I should have one in case they did); and I have a Google+ page because Google was pushing the "authorship thing" several months ago; and when I filled out a profile I automatically ended up having a Google+ page that I didn't know what to do with.

    Every once in awhile I'll go to one of those pages and "keep trying", as far as trying to think up something to do on them/with them goes.  I get to the page, see a bunch of stuff I'm not interested in, and get aggravated.  So, I'll delete all the stuff that I had didn't put on there, feel aggravated, and think, "So what do I do now?"

    As a result, in order to keep from getting too aggravated with stuff that I didn't put on my own page, I've set my pages to (essentially) "almost as private as possible" and "No, don't let anyone else put anything on my page."   (lol)  How "sociable of me, right?"   hmm  Sometimes I deactivate the Facebook page.  Then I'll have some reason to go back and activate it again.  I don't deactive the Google+ page because I write and there's that "authorship element" with that one. So instead, every couple of months I'll go put a "happy latest holiday" message, or else a message like, "I still don't do much on this page."    (It's only a matter of time before I realize that I don't belong on the "public" and/or social side of the Internet and close up shop completely.)
