    Which One Do You Prefer? Google+, Twitter or Facebook?

    I think overall my favourite is Google+ - I like the idea of the circles and keeping some communications separate from others. But I do like the quickness of Twitter and it can be more interesting. I've never really been a great fan of Facebook anyway, so this is my least favourite!

    Twitter is really fast and you can even tweet using your mobile phone, though there's nothing more to be done than sharing messages, statuses (in tweets), and sometimes links to various photos and websites. On the other hand, I find Google+ efficient and ORGANIZED. It's also something you can use if you want to build a decent profile. However, with the prevalence of facebook nowadays, though using it can be exasperating sometimes, it's undeniably one of the effective platforms for promoting something. Personally, I use facebook to communicate with fans who support my rock band and that's where we install applications to bring our music altogether using lastfm or reverbnation.

    Thanks for asking Seeker7. smile

    I am a huge Facebook fan. I can keep in touch with my oldest friend to my cousins in California to my former co-workers. I hear a lot of bad mouthing going on at Twitter about how much they hate Facebook (and whatever other colorful names they come up for it) but I wouldn't go without it for a day. I know a lot of Twitter users just absolutely love that service beyond all other social networking sites but I don't see it. There are some interesting and nice people whom I've chatted to on Twitter but no great, close friendships that so many seem to accumulate. I generally see a lot of people trying to sell their book, their author page or themselves to the point of just being spammers. I like Twitter for the ability to keep a flowing timeline of random comments about my day-to-day ramblings (as an extension of my blogs). But Facebook for me is the definite winner.
    A lot of people signed up for Google + and never, or hardly, use their account. It's dull and lacks the charm that Facebook or Twitter have. Only a few of my real friends are on Google + so I just talk to them on Facebook instead.

    I'm pretty disconnected as far as google+ goes, but I'm all over facebook. It may be that I just need to spend more time exploring and learning google+.

    As for twitter, I consider it a necessary evil. Sometimes it seems like I'm the only person who feels like 140 characters is nowhere near enough space to write anything really meaningful. smile

    Facebook seems to be my favorite among the three. I need to learn a lot more about the functionality of Google+ and I think twitter is not as powerful as Facebook though I do use it a bit.

    I use all three, because they each serve a different purpose for me. I use Facebook to stay in touch with family and close friends. I use Twitter to have discussions with people who have opinions that differ from mine. I use Google+ to share information with and have lengthier discussions with like minded people from all over the world. While it is more difficult on Google+ to get into conversations with people who have an opposing viewpoint because of the lack of anonymity, I find myself getting into such conversations more and more as time goes by.

    Whenever I post, I post from Google+, and use the Start Google Plus (SGPlus) extension in my Google Chrome browser to post the message to Twitter and Facebook at the same time. Social networking on steroids! smile

    I like all three. The computer said my answer was too short? What is wrong with liking all three. I simply like all three and use all three.

    I personally prefer Facebook, although it is because I haven't taken my time to get familiar with Google+ or Twitter. I just don't see a reason why, when none of my friends use them.

    The problem with Google+ is that it doesn't have the installed userbase of Facebook. See, everything about it may be better, but it's Facebook that I can log into, and find nearly everyone I know. Therefor, even though Facebook developers seem to thrive on making stupid changes that everyone hates, it is very useful. It's through Facebook I get event invitations, and where friends leave me messages, etc.

    Twitter is not comparable to either Google+ or Facebook. It has a different purpose. Although I'm not a huge fan of it. It is, by design, less useful than Facebook or Google+

    I'm a facebook person myself. I initially got involved to check up on my daughter you lived out of state. Then the next thing I knew all my relatives that I hadn't seen in a while started "friending me" I pretty much use it to stay in contact with relatives. At first I had more friend from back in high school on there, but there was so much BS and cussing from the younger generation and people that I had lost contact with and didn't know what path they had chosen that I had to get  rid of the negativity. That meant I had to get rid of them.

    I am not a big fan of any of those, although I do use Facebook. Twitter has little purpose in my mind and Google+ doesn't have a strong enough following.

    I prefer Google+, because personally Google is useful in lots of things.
    Second I like Facebook it's a really good way to contact your friends and family members that aren't with you.
    About Twitter I hate it, there isn't anything useful accept those dumb tweets by celebrities.

    Admittedly, I don't have a Google + account.
    I do use Facebook and Twitter regularly.
    I've used Facebook for a number of years, and while now I'm not using it as frequently as I did before, it's pretty useful. I use it to keep in contact and share photos with friends and family overseas, as well as keep up to date with events (like parties, anniversaries) that are coming up.
    Twitter is just for when I want to make a small update, or share a funny quote that I've seen.

    but overall, I prefer Facebook, with Twitter a close second.

    I plan to learn more about using google + and Facebook, mainly as a means to promote my hubs and hopefully bring in more traffic.  Right now I'm using Twitter because to me Twitter is easy to use.

    I like the idea of Google+ the best, but with none of my friends on it at this time it is like twitter to me. Kinda stupid and only useful to getting information from my favorite celebrities/rescues. Facebook is the one I use most often but once Google+ starts being used by more friends I might use it less often. Twitter I don't see the point in or use except when wattpad autotweets things for me.
