Where do you usually spend your time?

I have profiles on most of these sites (except Tumblr and TikTok), but mostly use Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube. What about you?

I use twitter although I don't participate much. I use it for the news and sports as its instantaneous, if its happening it tends t appear there first. Harsh arena as people throw abuse so I don't bother posting much.

Have really puled back on Facebook, friendlier but the things that came to light after US 2016 and brexit referendum disgusted me and their collaboration with Cambridge Analytica spreading hate and pure propaganda, all in the pursuit of the dollar was disgusting. Their defense of same was hard to watch as there has to be repercussions for spreading hate and xenephobia. I use it for family really.

You tube for music

Hi Aruena,

Just Facebook for contact but very little input.

I pop in and out of here when on a coffee break just to play catch up, but get fed up with the control freaks on here and their insults.

I was directed to another Forum where people are more civilised towards each other so go there for conversation and exchanges.handshake

None. A couple of forums in addition to this one and that's it.
Facebook got mad a few years ago so I bailed and the vegetarians ran me off twitter.

I used to be more active on Facebook and Instagram in the past. I use Facebook only to play games nowadays. laugh I don't like their new algorithm and search engine. They aren't so user-friendly any more. I also liked Instagram more in the past (I've always used it mainly to follow various artists), but they have really aggressive advertising nowadays and they also changed the algorithm, so I don't spend much time there any more.

I follow NASA, Science Channel, National Geographic, etc. on Twitter, but never really got used to that social network. I rarely check it. Pinterest is useful for me - I can always find the inspiration or interesting art and crafts ideas there. smile YouTube has all sorts of useful things - from music to lectures, exercises, videos that teach you how to do various things, vlogs... Definitely the most useful network. smile

Reddit is like a forum, but you have much more control over your profile, posts, you can choose what you want to read and follow... I use it mainly to read news, reviews and recommendations of TV series and films. Imgur is just for fun - funny photos and memes. I check both of them really rarely, maybe once a month.

I've recently joined Goodreads, but haven't started using it yet.

Is there any way for me to find out the name of that other forum? conversing

I tried several forums I found online, but they were rather empty and deserted.

YouTube, although I do not use it as a social media site. It used to be Facebook, but now that neither of my daughters are active there I just will occasionally post a random thought or a meme I find funny.

I do like Messenger, though.

Guess out of all the options I use YouTube more but only to listen to music. Even with music prefer other mediums because with you tube I end up looking at the screen to watch the video. I just prefer listening radio etc is better . Have Twitter for occasional tweet. No other social platform besides CS. Never even tried any of the others.

cheers wave

Youtube is definitely useful as a resource, as well as entertaining.

I heard Reddit is good, I must check it out.

None... totally useless. They use your information and track movement. No Gmail either, HotMail, etc... better email services and encrypted.

If I need to contact people I call them, text, or page if unavailable.

All private Logins.

MIT.
JHM
Princeton
5 other universities.
Tech research.

CS is the only one I can call a social site.

I spend the most of my time online at YouTube where I have a lot of subscriptions to travel vloggers. Yes! Some people are still traveling despite the covid restrictions. 5 of my travel vloggers bought a camper van or RV to travel in their own country.(2 in the U.S., 1 in New Zealand (rented), 1 in Australia, and 1 in the UK. Another American travel vlogger spent a few weeks all over Albania where there are no covid travel restrictions or mask mandates. A Canadian travel vlogger spent the last few months traveling Mexico, Turkey and Egypt. An American cruising couple spent a few weeks at an all inclusive resort in Xcaret, Mexico because they could not go on a cruise. Sometimes if you ask them a question, they will answer you. You can also wish them a happy birthday, anniversary and other holidays.

On FaceBook, I keep in touch with family and friends and is where I get most of my funny memes I post on the Forums.

On Instagram I can get real time updates on my travel vloggers and a few friends.

I don't do Twitter but think the CS Tweeter is funny. laugh
