This is the blog I meant to do yesterday, before I got sidetracked by my new skin 😀 Strawberry Singh has created a toughie of a meme challenge for this week. I can see now why she put it off last week!
This week’s challenge is all about our social media involvement. I admit I don’t use it a lot, other than Facebook, but I’ve got a few accounts that I’ve dredged out of the murkiest corners of the interwebs to include in this post. I guess now that I’m putting them out there, I will have to start feeding and watering them a bit 😮
Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your blog post. Delete my answers and fill in your own. These memes are all SL related, so please only share the networks that you use with your SL avatar. It’s ok if you talk and share RL stuff on there (we all do that sometimes). Also, don’t forget to link your post in the comments so I can come read!
So…here we go!
What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
I think it was Facebook in January, 2010
Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?
Facebook Page (Show me you like me, you REALLY like me! 😀 )
Facebook Profile (This will be VERY boring if you’re not my friend. I’ve got the security settings as tight as I can get them, considering it’s Facebook)
Twitter (I have an account, but I pretty much use it to follow the NHL)
Which network is your favorite?
Facebook is not only my favourite, but really the only one I use on a daily basis. I have some serious issues with the security on this site, but it’s where I connect with my SL friends. It was also where I first started posting my photos and received loads of encouragement to start doing photography for others from my mates here 🙂
Which network is your least favorite?
I guess it would have to be Plurk, basically because I don’t really ‘get’ it yet. I hadn’t really used it, but now that Berry has pimped me out, I guess I’m gonna have to start trying to figure it out 😀 And I really only follow on Twitter at this point – I need followers that aren’t hockey-related and would probably freak out if they saw my shameless ass shots 😀
Which network do you have the most amount of connections?
Definitely Facebook. I connect with my friends, my family, and my sweetheart, where we have a never-ending message running 🙂
How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
I use my phone when I’m on the train (excluding that bloody long tunnel!) and at work. My phone is NEVER out of my reach. When I’m home, I tend to use my pc more, but it’s not unusual for me to be doing something on my computer AND have Facebook open on my lil ‘droid 😀
What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)
I use the standard Facebook app for my droid, as well as the Pages Manager. I use the standard Flickr app, WordPress app for blogging on the go (rarely) and checking for comments. And I use TweetCaster for Twitter. Gotta keep up with my Wings!
What do you like most about social networking sites?
I love that I can connect and socialise with my friends without changing out of my trackies or putting on makeup!
What do you like least about social networking sites?
I hate game updates on Facebook! I don’t play games, except for Words With Friends and (lose at) Song Pop, so I really don’t give a stuff if you’ve harvested a world-record pumpkin on your friggin’ farm, thank you very much! I’ve turned off as many of these as I can, but they still creep into my timeline 😦
Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work?
I’ve gotten a lot of views of my blog from my Facebook page. It started with friends, but now I’m starting to get more “likes” from people I don’t know. I’ve only been blogging for about two months, so I’m thrilled with any new exposure I get. I do my blog mainly for myself, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy having other people view my work 🙂
What is your main reason for using Social Networks?
For Facebook, it’s to keep in touch with my SL friends and family. For Flickr, it’s to get a bit of exposure for my photographs. For Plurk…well, I’ll let you know once I figure it out!
The photo for this post was taken at Neva River. I jumped on the blogger bandwagon and headed over there tonight. I’m really glad I did 🙂 I’ll be going back before they close it to the public – I barely had time to explore!
I forgot to grab the full credits for what I’m wearing before I logged out, but here are the designers, at least:
Hair: Analog Dog – .b
Shoes: GOS Boutique
Don’t worry, I am only stalking, errrg um walking with you from a distance… 😀 Great post!
It’s funny how many people say that they just don’t get plurk! LOL No wonder it hasn’t really caught on into the mainstream.
