Twitter & Facebook.... so who does it...? Add your name here.

Hi All

OK, OK, OK... I've gone all sorta technofandangled recently! This is, in the main, because Lloyd and Heater are using the likes of Facebook and Twitter as part of their daily activities now. I never really bothered until recently with all this Bebo, MySpace, Habbo Hotel stuff and social networking sites, as there were too many of them in the first instance, and secondly - I had no real reason so to do. How times change in a short space of time eh.

I've recently found that Facebook can indeed be quite useful, and have found a few mates from old who I'd never have been back in touch with otherwise. It's also a great way to keep in touch with Lloyd now he's away, and with watching what Heathers up to of course!

Lloyd mentioned to me he's now using Twitter, and so I thought what the heck... I'll start to use that too. I've found a few interesting people to follow (Stephen Fry, Imogen Heap, Jem Godfrey), and will start using it a little more if it works. I've even this morning, found out how to add Facebook and Twitter to my mobile - I'm on an unlimited texts plan and so this costs me nothing, and I can decide who/what/when etc re updates.

I know posting on here can yield excellent responses, especially when it comes to arranging meetings etc, but I guess there's always the spur of the moment stuff that can't be easily done on a forum - hence looking into Twitter et al. I see a good use for this on here (family and communications aside) where if I am popping out somewhere, or if I find myself somewhere relatively unplanned, then a simple tweet to 'lists' or people asking if anyone fancies joining me - or vice versa of course - could be interesting.

So... if anyone is using Twitter or Facebook for that matter, let us know in here, and let us know if you want to be added or add someone and the info will be here for all to act upon. I have no delusions of grandieur, and don't expect to be mr popular, but if anyone is sad enough to want to add me on either FB or Twitter, my credentials are;

Twitter: John__Burns
Facebook: John Burns (current profile image is a landscape)

Feel free to add me or not, and to add your details here if you want to be added - for others to see.

It might work, it might not... we'll see.

I did a search of Facebook and found >500. Set location to Wales and found only one with landscape as profile image. Have sent you a message.

My daughter would disown me if I created a Facebook or Twitter account....................!
As I see it, it is more time to be wasted on the PC, as if I wasn't on it enough anyway!

I do like Facebook and did sign up for twitter, online, not mobile, but really do not feel a need for it. I play scrabble with a few folk on FB and it does help to keep in touch with folk I don't see regularly.

Facebook can be a huge time waster if you aren't disciplined enough to limit your time on it. There are some absolutely stupid applications for those who have too much free time available and nothing better to do. Then again it is superb to keep in touch with people and meet new friends. I have several very well known faces in the underwater video and photography world in my contact list. People who give me loads of ideas and inspiration.
