Social Networking: I don’t get it
I’ve tried – I’ve really tried! – to “get” social networking, but… I don’t.
I signed up for Pownce and Twitter, but –after just trying to kick the tires– I have no idea why I would use them. (Is this really the post-email era??)
I have a Facebook page (because it seemed cool), but I no longer maintain it. Myspace? No space.
Every time I start using one of these services, I find myself thinking, “how exactly is this helping me?”
Am I just that old or that unhip? [Update: Or both? ;)]
In the meantime, I think I’ll sit this dance out until the next big craze.
Note: Thanks to nf0 & Mike McBride for taking me along for the twitter/pownce ride. I really do appreciate your help in getting to know those two services.
UPDATE: Rob brings up an interesting aspect in his comment – Twitter can be a broadcast platform. I may stick with it for a week or so to see how that facet could work. He also shows social networking in plain English.
