How many f these media do you use to communicate with the same people?
I only have 60 minutes every hour. I can no longer keep up with every twitter, FB, blog or forum posting. (So don't, I hear you say)
It's often the same people I'm linked to on each. I still wish to stay in touch but the means to do so has now become such hard work wading through so much, to extract a little.
I'm almost returning to real life... (having loved a virtual life)
Is this normal?
I use the telephone, email and <gasp!> face to face meetings
I can see the uses of all these social media, and have to work with some of them as part of my job, but away from work - no thanks. It's the real world for me and I find it rather sad that people spend more time updating their Facebook about what they're doing than actually doing things.
I only tend to use social media to keep in contact with people who I don't see regularly, or to organise sporting meet ups. I really don't see the point in using it to talk to colleagues, family or people I see weekly at my various clubs.
I agree that it can get a bit overwhelming if you don't have the time to keep on top of it.
Facebook for keeping in touch with widespread friends and family, this place less often as I've retired from running, used to blog regularly, but haven't for over 18 months, and don't read as many...I can't remember the last time I read one to be honest.
I spend a lot of time on another hobby forum, it's just reached over 2,000,000 members, so there's always a thread to interest/annoy/educate/inform or just amuse...and no spam!
I was having a bad day
I like FB but do find it odd having a mix of friends on there. I'm quite compartmentalised. Many know different facets of my life and are probably a bit when exposed to the other bits
I like keeping up with friends but just find there are now soooooo many options that I can't cope
