I've had a couple of invites from this, personally I am a facebook fan, best way for staying in touch with those at home but I have noticed alot of people are using it less and have moved over to twitter more, I now use linked in for work purposes whereas I used to use facebook for this so is now better so I can keep a better seperation between the two. I can't be arsed to join another social network as feel I get what I need form the ones I am using. Twitter I don't use much here as im not networking as Im networking slightly differently here.

I dream of a day where I can do all my socalising without ever having to leave the security of my toilet.

Seriously, I just don't get any of these online things - apart from LinkedIn, but that is for a totally different purpose.

Millhouse you're such an old man- I use facebook to stay in touch with friends and family, I use it as a photo album, email, a kind of diary, a birthday calander and twitter type update thing, as well as a networking tool, so I can just drop quick messages to friends my family can see what I am up to, I get reminded when its peoples birthdays and can also stay in touch with people a lot easier. I would never have enough time to send my more casual friends long emails or call them whereas I can stay in touch with quick one liners, or posts on their comments etc so when i need to pick up the relationship again its been continuously oiled. I guess it works better for my industry than say yours as mine is so visual, and more casual.

Twitter is a good networking tool however I think you have to be on the ball with it to make it worthwhile, so I have never really sued it to its best.

FB saves my phone bill getting too high, my whole social life is organized via FB. But I wouldn't be surprised to see it go down the drains eventually, so many others have...myspace probably being the most noteable.

Quite a list of tools really..but I understand the whole idea of internet 2.0 is lost on the older generations..from the age of cc mail and telefax. I'm surprised I know so many elder statesmen and women who have finally learned to text in the 21st century.

Quite nifty, finding topics on the G+ Hangouts...someone has done a cooking class which was quite an interesting use of Hangouts and pretty nicely done apparently.

You don't just have to use Twitter as a networking tool, most of my friends are on there and we use it for chat, reading news updates etc, it's what you make it

and on top of that, you can "fav" posts, so you can check them out later, which is a good way of dealing with news type stuff.

I've been marking things as fav so that I can go back to them, especially if I've seen them on my phone and haven't got access to internet, its quite useful.

Was asking a friend about Google+ tonight, as I've no idea what its all about.

I am new to Twitter and tend to speak to total strangers or just stalk celebrities! I do find it really handy for breaking news.
