    So, I am a bit of a detective and think I have cracked the internet. If you need to know what social media/network site is right for you then your answer is here.

    FaceBook= Spying on your exs.
    Tumblr= Porn
    MySpace= Mail order brides
    Linkedin= Transferring RL success to Epeen

    Am I forgetting anything?

    Facebook can be utilized a lot more than just stalking exes. You can get tons of connections off there, it's how I landed my job (I was able to directly communicate with the manager there), you can find groups that trade etc and other things.

    Now Twitter is kinda useless , it's pretty much a downsized version of Facebook with shorter statuses. I had around 9k followers (while only following a few) and all I did was post stupid shyt.
    It was very convenient to use to get access to betas though I got a few keys off there that normally would've been impossible to get.

    I agree with the first one, but I don't agree with your assessment on Twitter. Twitter is pretty great for flash advertisement. This means quick messages that can capture a wide audiences attention. I feel like--and use both--they both have to be used together. Twitter for shorter development updates, flash advertisements, quick giveaways. Facebook for long term relationships with your audience, bigger giveaways, and larger advertisement. I, of course, am coming from the perspective of someone trying to get your business.

    Twitter has a lot of serious people on it which have valuable things to say. I find it already worth it just to listen.

    Youd think its just for advertising, but by the volume, there seems to be a bigger incentive for genuinety.

    Interesting feeds are not decked out ads, full of referal bait and all that. They are more like a stream of cnsciouseness from people who are profound.

    Also its not fb. It does one thing well. That is what makes it play in a diffrent league.

    Stay frosty.

    We actually use Twitter in one of our computer science classes (it is on computers and society, like an ethics behind technology and programming), the prof said people that tweet remember better.
