    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.:laugh:

    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. :laugh:

    THANK GOD FOR OLD PEOPLE!!:drinkup::drinkup::drinkup:

    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)

    22 years old here. My brother taught me how to build a computer when I was about 13. I use facebook all the time for personal use. Never for business. It doesn't sound like a bad idea though. I once read a top 10 checklist on things to do when starting a business. The last one said "Call everyone you know and tell them you are in business."
