For the most part it’s reading the same people saying the same thing on various different platforms. WHY!?!?!
I think I’m coming to the end of FB – but I just can’t seem to quit – I’m rather lazy so it’s a handy “keeping up with folk” tool. However some of the content can be soul destroying.
I tend to keep twitter as a celebrity stalking tool – I find it entertaining to see their interactions. I like posting to it ’cause I tend to treat it as an “I’m only talking to myself out loud” place – I’m not looking for gratifications of likes and comments etc. Yes it’s nice when it happens but not the reason for it.
G+, what exactly is it? I very, very, very rarely post to it, I don’t read it – I haven’t really figured it out. Let’s not even mention Linkedin! I joined to contact somebody (I never heard back from her) but now I’m getting mails from it telling me of all of my other friends who are on there – How the? What the? so I think that account is going to be shut down. Actually I think I might nobble the G+ one too (eventually)
Instagram, Flickr & Pix.ie are all photohosting sites with the insta. & flickr kindda inching towards social network. I do like these, you simply get to look at pretty pictures and tick the ones you like.
Boards.ie, Craftster & Ravelry are more or less forums – I don’t contribute to forums – Ravelry, I like as it’s a wonderful source for crochet patterns. Craftster is also handy to find out how to do things. I shall be delving in soon to find out how to tackle bobbin lace 🙂
LiveJournal & WordPress – BLOGS! And these are the way forward for me. I know what most of my friends are up to even without FB (the source of all social knowledge) besides how much can you tell in a line or two?? So I’m finding that I’m gravitating back to the blogosphere- I’m interested in what others are doing, but I like the detail, the random thoughts behind stuff, the why along with the what.
