    I'm just curious how many of you are getting into the "Facebook / Twitter" craze. I've just started getting into Facebook, but haven't even attempted Twitter. Is it worth the effort?

    Thanks!

    I never got into MySpace nor am I interested in Twitter.

    All 3 are social networking sites, designed to keep in touch with people you know. I have only joined Facebook, so know it best but have seen some of the others so here goes.

    MySpace - seems to lean towards people wanting to meet others rather than simply stay in touch with those they already know. More music and videos.

    Twitter - stay in touch pretty much constantly; designed for short comments that reflect casual conversation. Watch the explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddO9idmax0o

    Facebook - social network for staying in touch with people you know, let others know what you are doing and read what they are doing; easy for picture sharing

    My Dh is on facebook because my DD#3 signed him up last summer while she was home. He only checks it once a week or so unless he gets special messages. DD#1 & 2 are on as well as our son. Sometimes it's the only way to find out what is going on with them. When our DD#1 and her husband met in London last month while she was on R&R from the Army, it was the only way we saw the pictures of them and their trip. I'm thinking about doing a facebook account too. However I will not be on it near as much as my kids!

    I have an account with all three, but never really used MySpace - only signed up to see something a friend had posted.

    I use Facebook all the time! I've reconnected with some old friends & frankly, am addicted to some of their games LOL

    I do have a Twitter account, but don't check it very often. I am "following" a few people & find it interesting. I just started a Twitter account for my guild & thought I could post about our upcoming speakers & workshops. We'll see what happens.

    My son calls Facebook a great sucking black hole! And he already spends too much time on his computer according to DDIL!

    Once I read that you can never permanently leave or delete information from Facebook I decided I didn't need it.

    I don't use either..I guess I'm a "scaredy cat" when it comes to posting too much stuff on the web (although you wouldn't guess that from my posts on this board, would you?) :roll:

    I have Facebook to keep in touch with my DD, but I don't have any desire to do the others. Facebook I don't find very user friendly and I have found some people I would not have otherwise. I guess it is worth it.

    I'm with you, Patti! I don't think we put stuff on this board that is too 'out there.' Pays to be careful. I was in a group once, and came across some pretty weird tricks and characters :shock:

    I'm on Facebook and prefer it to Myspace actually. My kids are on both but we communicate on Facebook the most and we also have relatives in other states on there as well that we get to stay in contact with.

    You can set your account to Private and only those that you let in can see what is there. It doesnt have to be "wide open" to everyone if you don't want it to be.

    We have a blast with the Farm game.......lol!
