Personally, I prefer Twitter. I find it short, simple and informative.

cant stand twitter, i think its making ppl stupid. its how orwell predicted in 1984, reducing language down to less words and making ppl more robotic

Hate Facebook...prefer the anonymity of forums and Twitter; ironically I can be more open and honest without something being held against me (DR is not my real name)

Facebook, because of my age, the accessibility of facebook, that and my friends and family all use it from over the world, it's the best means to keep in touch with them.

My only gripe is that I find it too accessible of information, and the changes it keeps making, it was better to use several years ago when it was simpler.

I don't understand twitter, unless you want to follow celebs on it.

What I don't like about Facebook is that it encourages gossip too much :lol: At least that has been my experience.

Twitter is confusing at first, but once you know how to use it is very cool.

Well personally I liked Facebook. It keeps me in contact with people who I wouldn't see everyday, and I love the notification system. I wish TF would get something like that, because I never know when people reply to what I say and stuff, and I'm too forgetful to actually check the threads I've posted in.

twitter & forum can complete each other.
Never liked FB.
tumblr is alright browsing pictures & stuff.

Only the space less, not words :oh:
But even then, you have to know how do you want to use. Tweeting links, news, photos, small updates & raging about something, its very convenient.
Arguing with 3 or more ppl... its horrible and chaotic.

It would be so cool if TF would add that, 'cause as you said, sometimes you just don't realize if ppl replied to you.

Btw, I'm surprised to see that option Forums is #1. I thought it was gonna be Facebook.

Also, another wonderful apps that I love are Instagram and Streamzoo!

I don't exactly know why I never joined facebook, I guess I never found it particularly interesting.
Twitter seems fun and it's nice to follow people and all but I've never gotten into tweeting stuff myself.

Forums and tumblr for me.

I began on Internet where mIRC was THE program to chat with people you like and not to forget the old ICQ... I don't mind both Facebook or Twitter but hey what I miss on twitter what you have on facebook : if you block someone he won't be able ever to read your tweets...

I prefer forums to FB/Twitter as it was the very first social platform that I came across online. Forums allow people to have in depth discussions unlike FB/Twitter which are nothing but breeding grounds for gossip and narcissism :facepalm: I can't wait for the day when FB and Twitter suffer the same fate as Friendster and Myspace. That's why I don't use FB and Twitter often

I admit it...I love Facebook, Twitter and TF - would feel lost without all three now :hearts:

Originally I used to have different people on all three.....Facebook was more personal friends, Twitter few people I knew but mostly talking to total strangers but in recent times I seem to have the same friends on all three now :lol:

But, they are all very different....I still feel as if I'm on my best behaviour on Facebook, feel as if I can say whatever I want on Twitter and TF...I always try to be careful what I say ;) One thing that I do love on Twitter is how I've interacted and become friends with people from TF who I had never really had contact with on the forum before :D

In general though...I love any way to stay in contact with friends from around the world and to hear other opinions...all three sites are great!!! :worship:

Also everyone around my age in Australia has a Facebook, and thats pretty much how you contact everyone. I actually don't even know anyone my age who doesn't have one...

Twitter is useless.
Does anyone use LinkedIn? I use it to keep in touch with former work friends or professional contacts who are not really friends to be on Facebook. Facebook is for friends that you don't see everyday.
Forums are more for specific interests.

I have a friend with 2 facebook accounts. In one he added his gf, that is the boring; almost fake account. The second one is a mess :lol:
