    Bebo and Twitter for me. Don't bother with Bebo much but check out Twitter several times a day.

    Facebook myself, though I'm currently in the process of migrating away from that to Live Spaces.

    I have a FaceBook account but haven't signed into it in about 5 months! I'm just so busy I don't have time to keep in touch with 'friends', and any bit of spare time I get isn't going to be wasted looking at people pointless profiles - "Oh look, Johnny boy is getting married - didn't care 5 years ago when he last made the effort to speak to me, why should I care now". If I want to socialise, I'll go to the pub.

    I have accounts on all because we are trying to round up former pupils and staff to celebrate the school's 90th birthday. However, I really don't use them for personal stuff at all! Email does me fine!

    'The staff room' seem to regard me as some sort of technological wizard for creating the accounts ... wish they were as impressed by me sorting out their various technological problems!

    A blight on the planet and the end of western civilisation as we know it. No accounts for me

    facebook (actually use) and myspace (no real reason to have it anymore)

    bebo is for kids

    Twitter i just cant be arsed with, no matter how much everyone says its powerful, i dont want people 'following' me, no-one cares what im doing throughout the day, and i dont care what anyone else is doing either. Load of crap

    Black Sheep, I completely agree!!!

    I have no interest on what a friend to the nth degree of a friend is currently doing!

    "John is currently eating cheese on toast". O joy, thanks for sharing that with me, my life is more rounded for that!

    "Lucy has a bad itch!". Please don't carry on.

    If you want to talk to people, pick up the phone or right an email to them, don't blast out a world wide ping of complete uselessness!!!

    BTW, I do have one but only as I've been trying to organise a stag do. Using it for the first time, I came to the above conclusion within 1 week. I've moved to google groups for the purposes I need.

    Facebook and Myspace

    Myspace is brilliant for advertising my band locally and even got us gigs in places like Manchester Academy.

    Use Facebook more for communicating with friends, although its recently turned completely st
    and wants to be twatter.

    I hate the new look.
    All my friends hate the new look.
    They should put it back to how it was.

    Although I turned my facebook into "Pirate Language" which is AWESOME!

    I tried twitter after reading a pdf by Scott mckayabout using it as a dating site, but frankly microblogging and random commenting doesnt suit. I got bored of the whole experience after 2 weeks or so.

    is it just me or am i completely missing the point of twatter?

    "I just took a dump"

    "i just had a bowl of soup"
    yeah ive not really ever seen the point of blogs, some people use them as places to put what I would call articles. But apparently that word has now been replaced by blog.... I suppose you can't say your going on to your pc to do some articling though...

    Some blogs to be fair are fascinating - especially if someone of a certain profession is sharing information about their field. And I like music ones, where people just post about different obscure artists - its the best way of sharing knowledge like that

    But personal blogs are very rarely worth reading. I thought about starting one but who would want to read it?
