Do You Use These?

I am curious - how many of the members here at LawnSite use different technologies like myspace.com, facebook.com, twitter.com, etc....

Do you use any of these things for personal use? More importantly, which is what I am really wondering is, do you use these things for your business?

More and more people are so let's hear it - do you?

I don't use any of these for personal or business. Lawnsite is my only networking site that I go on. I feel like a big time computer guy, because I know how to use Lawnsite.

Spend a lot of time on facebook, keeping tabs with family and friends strewn across the globe...

Never use it biz, though. The web is where I ESCAPE work...

I don't use either service.

Come on now Sean, Myspace and Facebook are so two years ago. Didn't you hear, all the old people ruined it.

Those sites (IMHO) are chock full of trollers, pedophiles, scammers and viruses...NO THANKS!

My GF's daughter screws up any computer she uses by using these sites (fact)...what's this world coming to when you need crap like this to get through your days...(i know, I know, old attitude... my parents hated The Beatles when they appeared too...lol)

I just created a page for my business on facebook. added pictures of my work and then invited all my friends to become a fan. the idea is that THEIR friends will see that they are a fan of my business and look at my page and HOPEFULLY lead to more calls. that's the THEORY anyway.

Twitter is HUGE now.. just a year ago the top two guys on it were Kevin Rose and Leo Laporte. They had about 40,000 followers. In fact they were the only ones talking about it, the netcast geek guys. They were big fish in a small pond but then it went viral not sure who, maybe Obama' but somebody made it a mainstream fetish. Now Aston Kutcher (whatever his name is) and Larry King or CNN are the big fish. With over a million followers.

Myself, if it wasn't for the fact that I have watched some of those Diggnation podcasts I would never have heard of it. Not interested in it at all or any of those facebook things either. My sister wants me to get a facebook account so she can play scrabble with me but then I seen how they play scrabble. It's kind of like talking to someone on this forum... it could take days before the other person takes a turn. Plus you can cheat.

Plus I don't want to get tracked down by the facebook killer ><
