I have a facebbook account, but I don't use it very much. As for Twitter, that really confuses me :lol: :lol:

I know a lot of people love it and it is a good way of keeping in touch with friends and family you don't see very often :yes:

One other thing I've noticed is that before, people would come to places like here to chat, now they go to facebook.

I have both Facebook and Twitter. In fact it's rare that I don't have both open at the same time. Twitter is good because all the big news stories seem to break on there first.

I have both and like neither :lol:

Twitter is good if you want to see what the famous pretty people are saying :lol: whilst knowing that you'll see major news before anyone else.

Facebook is a nightmare really. Perhaps if it was possible to segment people into different groups.. work/friends/family or something. Even then though it'd be full of invitations to silly games and people tryin' to sound clever ;-) Problem is it's now the one place you can almost guarantee to get in contact with someone.

You can set up groups Keith so that might help

I delete every game request and also block the applications so they don't show up on the news feed

Also wehen any of my friends join a new game etc I just hide all by that particular game so I get hardly any of those now

Yes to FB and no to Twitter.

I use FB to keep in contact with friends and family and share news and pictures. I don't play any of the games or any of that fluff stuff. I just block or ignore that.

Well you can but I THINK groups are something different? like interest groups but I didnt think there was a way to say "David is a work colleague so only share work related comments with him"

perhaps I need to look harder :)

Yes you can set up groups, but unless the members of those groups specifically prohibit certain feeds they still get everything. This is something I really wish they would fix especially for game players. I play mafia wars. Unfortunately everyone who becomes my friend gets an automatic invite. While I have a group set up for my mafia wars members, I wish there was a way that when I accepted a friendship I could put them in an appropriate group so that they wouldn't get the automatic invite.

I have both and am more in the Keith camp...

I use facebook essentially to keep in touch with family and friends who are not here, but try to be quite cautious about what I post there, as you never really know who can see what you write. :unsure: I don't end up posting much... just random comments. I don't play any of the games and really dislike the invitations to do so. I end up blocking them. I never really lose sight of the fact that it's a public forum and anything posted there is "out there" for eternity... :shrug:

Twitter? Well, I have it but don't really see its benefit so don't use it.
