Do You Use Social Media?

I love using the internet to communicate. But despite the hype, often it is difficult to work out what services your friends and colleagues are using. Many people have been using Facebook for friends and something like LinkedIn for business. But now LinkedIn is getting into the Facebook game with more features like "answers".

So I thought I’d ask a general question, feel free to leave comments or contact me if you’d like to connect…. what sites do you use regularly?

Here’s my list in order of usage…

  1. del.icio.us for bookmarks
  2. twitter for microblogging
  3. zooomr for photos
  4. googletalk for IM Chat
  5. facebook for friends
  6. linkedin for business

Some of these get regular attention, others only occasional, I think that’s the nature of relationships in general, some take more energy and time than others.

How do you communicate online? Is it just by email, or do you use other sites? Feel free to drop your user names if you want to collaborate!
