I know it's confusing, but I"m not a lad I'm a lass.

And I am working.... I am the queen of multitasking.

That said, I know some people on who here refuse to use social networking.
I find it hard to believe that the decline in activity on TIO is due to a site where the vast majority of members only use it to post utterly wank-ridden pseudo-intellectual garbage in the guise of 'inspirational quotes' in bold, late 90s typeface over an out of focus photograph of some silly bollocks.

See - I'm still here . Even though I've been forced into arsebook because I abandoned all my mates by following my knob across the Atlantic ...

It depends what you want to do really. Facebook is good for family and friends. Twitter is great for taking the piss out of celebs and politicians. Although I've gradually stopped following lots of celebs, 'normal' people are funnier.

Yeah, I sort of know what you mean. I don't even really like it in real life but having recently just (albeit indirectly) discovered I'm apparently a godless, un-American, communist, I might just have to start having fun with people ...
