Blogger works wonderfully if you get a decent following. Facebook, well I use that for play only.

I first registered on Myspace in 2006 and I thought it was fantastic for discovering new music, which is what I initially used it for. Then I began to develop my "virtual" social network of friends, and like most things I promoted it to my friends who were not on it.

Then came Facebook, which ended my relationship with Myspace and despite the constant format changes, I am still an avid user of it. Mostly I use it to update my "status" with some witty, funny or upbeat remark. I get annoyed when I see peoples' statuses stating, "I'm bored" - you're on the internet, how can you be bored?! It's also good to have a nosey at what people are up to. Yay for voyeurism! It is also good for sharing photos, events, likes and dislikes and it's great for promoting things from music, art, and fundraising blogathons!

However, one of my pet peeves is the huge number of ridiculous "fan pages" people like and create. I've noticed that a lot of the younger people on facebook (the teenagers) 'like' a LOT of these fan pages. Here is one I picked up from my 15 year old cousin's FB: Join if u have stayed up past 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 in the morning.. I don't get it! :D

Finally, Twitter is awesome! After originally joining early 2009, I was "on a break" with Twitter for about 12 months and rekindled my fondness for it around May. I absolutely love it! Not only do I continue to update with witty, funny and upbeat statuses (that still annoy my FB friends), I've managed to meet some fantastic new people who I really enjoy talking with. Its great to find people that have the same likes and interests. I've even had DMs from actual real-life celebrities. I've had two DMs from rock star Myles Kennedy off of Alter Bridge and who is currently touring with ROCK LEGEND Slash. I've tweeted him about seeing him and Slash at a gig and generally my love for the music and he's sent me some nice messages thanking me and liking the fact that I "dig the music". They have made my day XD. Despite following celebs, the best bit about Twitter is meeting all the cool RL people who I chat to about shared interests.

With FB and Twitter, I have been able to follow this fantastic Blogathon. :D

Blogger's good for the one time posts, I admit.

Twitter...I LOVE Twitter. It's my fav. :D

I personally hate Facebook, and keep it for being invited to events and for family that uses it and nothing else.

Twitter has become the big hangout spot for me, it seems, with LJ close behind (although I read more than I post, as all the small asides that used to go there now live on Twitter!)

I'm not a fan of Facebook but HATE MySpace.

Twitter's my hangout of choice. :D
