I'm on Farcebook, but it doesn't show on my timeline (hopefully edited so it does now).

 

Should go on Instagram as well, I sometimes upload pics to that.

Sorry, neither.

 

Find most social media completely inane.

+1 wot Nick said. Although technically a forum could be described as social media but unlike Farcebook it's not all about big data mining and whereas we have the 13 character rule, [email protected] has effectively the opposite, encouraging pointless brain farts!

Now following on Twitter - didn't realise there was an account. Don't use FB; it's evil

As far as social networking goes I actually prefer Instagram, FB is too intrusive, and I never really have anything to say on Twitter...

 

A picture speaks a thousand words so they say.


Beans, beans the musical fruit, the more you drink, the more you... *tremors uncontrollably* 😬

Don't 'get' Twitter. Who wants to tweet up-to-the-minute trivia about themselves all the time? Quite a few, apparently, but I fear for their mentality! "Just going for a poo"... "Ooh, that's better"... I really don't get it!

 

FaceBook I used to use a little - not much - but ever since FB virtually ditched its privacy some years ago without any recourse to, or consent from, its users, I don't trust it, and use it as minimally as I can get away with. I mostly read on FB and rarely write.

 

If anyone can convince me that it's safe to use, I'll consider using it more.

Difference between you and me, Mr O, is that you've just got up, and I haven't made it to bed yet! I blame CFUK.

 

On my way now...

I have @coffee_forums added to a 'coffee list' on twitter. I don't really see it as inane, there's some interesting and useful info out there, you just have to be selective about who you listen to (just like in real life :D).

Twitter can be very useful, i would say about 70% of the people i follow are related to coffee in some way, you get to pick up some stuff you wouldn't normally hear about, say on here or in your everyday life, then of course you can follow people who make you smile, are interesting or musicians you are into.

 

Facebook is worse for me, all you get is people sharing photos of baby's, pets, family holidays.....

Use Facebook all the time to keep in touch with many people. Although I have a Twatter account I never use it...
