Are you on Facebook? Myspace? LinkedIn? Twitter?

If so, which one is your favorite? Have you reunited with old friends or schoolmates?

On Facebook, I have reconnected with a couple of different groups, one from a church I used to go to years ago. Found a whole group of them together and now a couple of us are texting each other.

If you would like to connect with any of the readers of this site, you are welcome to leave a link in the comment section, or send me a private message.

I am not on Facebook.... and I guess this dates me... but, do not plan on joining. A professor of my daughter's required that she join and I was not at all happy about that.

I know that a lot of people enjoy it, it's just not for me. (My daughter is still a member, but she says that she gets people who want to join her Facebook circle... people she doesn't even know!)

I just joined when an old high school friend told me that I should -- that there were lots of alumni on Facebook and it was fun to connect. I had no idea it was for me. I thought Facebook and MySpace were for kids, or for single people looking to match. Boy, was I wrong. I've reconnected with many former friends, and have scheduled a reunion with those who still live close by. One friend told me he joined Facebook to find his birth family, and he did! I do think it's a bit odd, though, how much time these old high school friends have to banter about on Facebook. They go on many times throughout the day to tell everyone about the minute details of their day. That's going a bit too far, I think. It's neat to reconnect, but to spend that much time on a computer chatting with people that will probably always be second tier is not what I want out of it.

I don't hang there, but I did connect with a whole group of people I used to attend church with in another city. I haven't seen any of them for about five years and it's great to see all the little babies of the ones who were the older teens when I was there. They are now married with kids. Some of the adults are on the site also.

In these types of situations it's a lot of fun, but can be mis-used, I'm sure.

I also connected with a friend from high school and early married life who I had lost touch with.

Danna, I would imagine the professor meant well, but that should be a voluntary join don't you think? And yes, I have had people connect that I don't know. Those types of people I avoid.

Tricia, Sounds like you are having a great time. The reunion sounds like a blast. Yes, it can definitely be a time waster and I only allow myself early morning and late evening if at all.

I am on LinkedIn and most recently Twitter and Facebook. With Facebook we have a reunion coming up to so I'm reconnecting with people I haven't seen since highschool so it's kind of fun for now, but it can be very addictive.

I use Twitter which then updates my other feeds like Facebook. That way I just have to put short blurbs about new articles and I'm set!

Lisa, I think that's an excellent idea. Sure would save a lot of time. I've been so busy lately, Twitter is usually the only one I connect with. Having the feeds would definitely speed the marketing process.

For those on LinkedIn, I could use one more recommendation for my profile to be complete. smile

HI Edie,
Do you just need someone else to link to? If so, I'm on LinkedIn. I'm only linked to a few people, but if you would like I can link to you. Let me know!

Dianne, apparently we need three recommendations for our profile to be complete. I don't really need for my profile to reach 100%, but if someone I "work with" wants to write a short recommendation, then that's okay with me. I just threw the suggestion out there in case someone does want to write something (hopefully positive).

Facebook is a great place to find old friends and classmates. Seems like many more people are getting on the bandwagon. Facebook is easier, to me, to communicate with others. I seem to use Twitter mostly for promotion, I'm not really connected to anyone where we are writing back and forth.

I am glad so many people are getting the chance to connect with others from the past. The older we get, the more we seem to drift away from people that used to play a big part in our lives.

I haven't tried Facebook or LinkedIn but love Twitter. I have three Twitter feeds, and I think they are driving traffic to sites I write for.

Trish,

When I wrote for an article site I always linked the article to Twitter. Every time my page views would spike. Even with BellaOnline, I always link to my latest articles.

I think Twitter is great for driving traffic to sites, especially if someone goes out 2-4 times a day to promote. I get busy and forget, but we could reach many more people that way.

I tried My Space for almost a year when I was living in Ste-Florence (2010 or 2011 or 2012 or 2013) I left before it went away then came back changed. I never was a member of Facebook, Twitter or websites like that and I am pretty certain I never will be either. Besides this website (is it considered a social network website??) and the months on My Space I was a member of Care2 and Tree Nation which I think are considered at least a little social network if not fully.

This is one of the reasons why I haven't joined websites like Twitter, it is too confusing.
