    got a bebo and a facebook. dont use the bebo much anymore since everyone seems to have jumped on the facebook bandwagon. Dont really use it much to be honest. Sign in maybe once a week to have a nosey at everyones business.

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

    Although I'm on FB, MySpace and Twitter, I use MySpace the least.

    Twitter is whatever you make of it, it can mean and can be different things to different people. Some use it like what RabbieBurns quoted, but to others it's a good way of finding people with mutual interests (TweeterTags) and keeping in touch/updated with mutual friends and groups you're members of.

    I use FB myself. I use it a lot to talk to friends on the chat functionality rather using msn.

    Ad-communication

    None, If people cant be bothered to phone or type an email then are they your friends?

    I've lost count of the amount of people bitching about people on their 'friends' list they wouldnt say hello to in person.

    Facebook and Twitter for me.

    MySpace and Bebo are too customisable for my liking, in terms of themes, and it gets to the point where people make their pages unusable. Unless MySpace has changed it's site recently.

    I am on Facebook and have a twitter account but I think I need to have an hour or two to sit down and work out what its all about.

    The key in twitter is the network and you only see the power once built your network up and got number of people who follow you and they follow you.

    Once at the point just ask a question and then see what it is about.
