Thoughts on Social Networking Sites
Posted 7/20/12 , edited 7/20/12

What are your thoughts on Social Networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr?
Do you use any of them?



Feel free to drop your links
my tumblr
my twitter

Apologies if this thread is already up,
the only threads I have seen focus on only one social networking site
& are long dead.

I think they're boring So I don't really go on. There isn't much you really DO there right? And if you really wanted to talk to someone, go call them or something and then chill ._.
But if you're grounded, like I am sometimes, you have to use Facebook. NO MATTER THE COST *_*
Like, the send a few messages or to organise things in secret

I hate the assholes who post unnecessary things on FB's News Feed. Like, oh...let's say, spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises! Seriously!

This is in addition of all the dumb things people post, but those are unavoidable. Social networking is handy though; news spread a lot faster (I guess, so do gossip). I do dislike the fact that it's hard to tamper it down, when needed. Hard to find the perfect mix of what social networking ought to be.

But for the most part, it's nice to know that you're somewhat connected to people you'd like to keep in touch with. It doesn't matter how active or inactive you are...but knowing that there's a way to find them is a bit comforting. Of course, hiding from someone is made difficult by this aspect. Haha.

I just wanna say that people who are using them today are retards. <.<;;
They used to be better.
And I only use them to talk to people and find people with the same interests.

I used to HATE tumblr, but now I think it's my favourite one honestly. I don't really "GET" twitter. I still think it's more of a famous people thing. And facebook use to be my favourite until I started adding people that I knew IRL but not that well, and they'd either just spam with pics of themselves or write really strange and vulgar things on their page and it would come up on my feed -__-

Unnecessary but somewhat beneficial

They help you keep in touch and reconnect with people you haven't seen in a while, and likely never would again. I check my facebook maybe once a day, see if there is anything going on. And I get text notifications if someone tries to contact me directly. People who sit on their facebook all day is a bit excessive in my opinion.

I think some of them have a good purpose, ie. Facebook is for connecting with old friends, family, members, acquaintances, etc. However, some of them I just find rather pointless. I go on Facebook maybe once a week just to check if I got any messages from old friends or family, but that's about it. I have a twitter account but don't really ever post to it. Sometimes I will read others twits just for information. I also don't have an active blog at the moment though i have been considering it lately to help me keep tabs on movies and books I've read and my thoughts about them. Sorry for the long post, that's about it.

Oh I forgot. One site I actually do really like it goodreads.com

Meh it's more for the popular kids not regular boring kids like me. I do go on everyonce in a while to say happy birthday to someone or to see the latest trend in the world.

I do have to mention something funny that I see on Facebook a lot. This one girl usually posts like 15 comments a day and usually posts 2 pictures a day also. She usually gets 1 comment or 1 like on each pic or status she posts. So here's the funny part now. So she took one picture wearing jean shorts and a low cut shirt that made... well you know made her look sexy. She then got like 30 likes and 13 comments on that ONE pic. Lol I thought that was so funny because I was like on this ONE picture she gets crap loads of attention but the others nothing.

It's either funny stuff like that or some really popular guy breaking up with some girl and saying he's going to be lonely for the rest of his life or saying he's ugly. Then they usually get a new gf the next week. Leaving me saying, "Plz just... just stop posting crap like that and you get a new one next week." So yeah I kinda hate it but go on it for events.

Facebook is pretty terrible, no need to explain that. Most of the other ones seem alright, although I don't use them.
