The Social Networking Battle

On the same day that Facebook gets another terrible new makeover, Google+ opens its doors to the public. Hopefully this will see the less irritating people of the world jump ship from Facebook to less irritating social networks such as Twitter, Tumblr and (hopefully) Google+.

Anyway, which social networks do you use and which one is your favourite?

Re: The Social Networking Battle

I have a facebook, a twitter and a tumblr, I quite like tumblr it's much different and easier than twitter to share images or videos. Twitter is good to follow people's schedule or thought really useful for tennis lol...Fb is just a way to directly connect with people. SO to me they have 3 different purposes. I used to have a myspace but I haven't been on it since ages, so I didn't count it lol

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Re: The Social Networking Battle

I have a Facebook, which I used to play regularly, and twitter, which I rarely use. BTW, what's wrong with FB? I haven't experienced any change yet.

Something about subsriptions and top stories and hiding the log out button I hate how it keeps changing the way privacy settings work, so I'm glad to have jumped ship to Google+ today.

I think I'll still use Twitter the most though.

Re: The Social Networking Battle

I mostly use IRC to catch up with my European & across the Atlantic contacts. Perhaps, I might join Twitter (almost real-time messaging feature) but no plans yet. No other social or chat tools except my ever-reliable iPhone 4 as I prefer voice over texting.

My vote for IRC & Twitter

Re: The Social Networking Battle

Everyone "despises" Facebook after a change.
Yet they've been changing since like 07, and everyones still on there

Re: The Social Networking Battle

Facebook and Google+. Twitter gets obnoxious when people retweet everything.

Re: The Social Networking Battle

FB has not been fun since they killed all the applications. The new group/page formats are extremely stupid and pointless.
