WHY do you use Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.?

Sorry if I missed any other social websites! I only use Facebook. I signed up with MySpace but didn't get "into" it and I've never attempted Twitter. I like Facebook as a means of having contact with friends and family "of old" - people I haven't seen in "forever". It's also nice to see the personal side of my social networking (internet) buddies. Why do you use them?

  • too keep in touch with family & friends who live far away. It's like a little window into their life that you'd never see otherwise. Love it.

  • FB - to keep up with friends & to promote my business
    MySpace, mostly for information sharing and networking just like CafeMom
    Twitter - just for promotion

  • Facebook and MySpace were to see family photos. We very rarely check MySpace anymore. I joined Twitter to follow certain celebrities or TV shows but blogs are much more interesting.

  • I use fb. I have a lot of friends and family that live 1000+ miles away and its the easiest way to keep in touch with them and for them to see pictures of my lil guy

  • Same reasons as you. With facebook I get to kind of keep up with family and friends on a daily basis, where-as it would only be a few times a year otherwise.

  • Myspace = It used to be a place to meet new people, connect with old friends, and what-not. But now that everyone is soo protective over their profiles you can't meet new people. I only have a select few on there anymore, because now it's my site to complain, rant, and get out frustration. Only the people I truely trust are on there.

    Facebook = My family, DH's family, my friends, old school friends, and online friends are on there. It's a place to keep in touch, play some games, cure some boredom, etc.

  • I use Facebook because it was a great way to reconnect with people from my past that I wouldn't get to see otherwise. I live across the country from everyone I grew up with. Even to keep in touch with my sister, it's great. We're both so busy, we only call each other a few times a year. We can stop by Facebook and take two seconds to see each other's kids' pictures and stuff, though.
