Things 10, 11, 12!!!
Well Twitter, yep as I thought I really can't see the point of it. I'm not really that interested in what other people think, but I guess having the BBC News headlines was quite nice. Unfortunately I followed a fave actor of mine only to see that he seems a bit of a loon on Twitter!!! It was really easy to set up and I like that about these things that I can add my picture and change the colour so that it's just "me" in style. However I have trouble keeping up with Facebook which leads me on nicely...
Well I've had a Facebook account for a long time and I tend to fall in and out of love with it. To me Facebook is all about being nosey and seeing what old school friends are up to, finding out where my mum is eating this week (and if my parents are sticking to their diets!!!). I tend to not post much on there but comment on other people's posts. I guess it's sort of stalking, but with permission as I'm friends with the people I'm stalking so all is ok, right?
The problem with Facebook is that I have it as an app on my phone and it seems to come out and is easily accessible when I'm drunk, or even just tipsy - see the picture for instance - yes I really do see that I shouldn't be sharing this as I was quite inebriated and I don't look my best...
So there is the problem with Facebook - it's too easy to make yourself look a fool :) Or rather it's too easy for me to make myself look like a fool!
I really can see the point of Linkedin, I didn't make myself an account as I didn't want to spend time on something which might be rather important if I do look to use it as a way of promoting me. I guess if you were job hunting it would be a good way of saying this is me, this is what I can do and really you should snap me up now, before some other company comes along and wants me! However likely that is, I'm not too sure. I guess one day I might add myself. But at least for now I know it's out there and what it's all about!!
