My Addiction...

I think I am addicted to Social Networking. It has become quite clear to me as I signed up to LinkedIn. I am not sure what it is about these sites. Each one provides something different. Some are really way though, but others are pretty good to the point that they are very addictive. So I will just give a list of all the sites I am on. (Editor's Note...Don't Judge Me!)

  • Facebook - By far the most addictive. I have connected with so many old friends and so many students. I do love this site. However, it has been growing old on me. They keep changing the layout. But, every time I think I am getting tired of it I get a message from an old friend.

  • Twitter - This moved up quickly to me because so many people use it. I do not follow any of the celebrities, but I do love the quick updates that people give. Right now this is the most addictive to me.

  • Blogger - A no brainer here. I blog everyday...and I do mean everyday. It is my own personal soapbox that I control and I have met some cool people who always comment! (You know who you are)

  • Tagged - I joined this one a few weeks ago. This a what a site would look like if Facebook and Myspace got together and had a kid. Not a bad site. I am not so addicted to it though.

  • Myspace - This used to be my joint! I was on this site all the time. I just lost all its sexiness to Facebook. I have been on that site in weeks.

  • Adultspace - This is basically Myspace...but naked.

  • LinkedIn - I am actually liking this site. This is a site I can find people I know and look for a job! Hey, I am not gonna be at SU forever.

  • Migente - This is blackplanet (which I am not on), but Latino. I was into this site along time ago. I visit every once in a while. But, it just doesn't do it for me.

  • Yahoo 360 - This is ok. I joined because I have a yahoo account, but it is quite wack in my opinion.

  • I have kept an account on these sites because you never know who you might run into. I do not normally erase a profile. I do have some on sites I rather not say due to personal reasons! I think social networking can be fun, until they get boring.

    I know there are other sites because I still get invites. Maybe I will check them out. But, one thing is for sure, I do not pay to Social Network.

    Wow, and I thought I was bad! But I think I'm on half the ones you named. I can't even tell you the last time I looked at my Myspace account. The novelty of that site was wearing off on me LONG before Facebook.

    LinkedIn is cool, and I refuse to do Twitter right now...can't handle it! You are truly a fiend Ant! LOL!

    I didn't know about some of these. I have profiles on facebook, myspace, twitter and linked in. That's about it...I think I'm over most of them now, but the height of my obsession with linked in peaked about a month ago (prior to the changes on the page). I still don't love twitter because some of the folks that update do it about stupid stuff (imho).

    I check myspace occasionally, but it's really just from habit now. I don't do anything there at all anymore...

    I don't know how you have the time to keep up with them all.
