Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.
Christine over at Erotic Book Junkies / Romantic Crush Junkies actually gave me the idea for this post a while back. There are so many wonderful resources available to us as bloggers and individuals. Take a look at just a few of the many social networking sites: Facebook, MySpace, Library Thing, GoodReads, Twitter. . . the list can go on and on!
Sometimes it is hard to keep up with everything, and sometimes we all need a place just for us - where we don't have any blogger responsibilities.
Questions: How do you feel about social networking sites? Do you have any you like more than others? Are there any you don't like? Do you have any that you don't associate with your blogs and/or book reviewing? If you could only belong to one of these sites, which one would it be and why?
My Answer: I really like many of the social networking sites. I am a member of all of the ones I've mentioned above, and probably a few more.
There are a few I like better than others. Facebook is a favorite of mine because it is so great for finding people and keeping in touch/updated. And I love Library Thing for the book side of things because it is so easy to use and seems pretty complete to me.
Least favorites? MySpace - I really only use it to find old friends from school who are not on Facebook, otherwise, I don't think I've ever posted anything over there of left any updates. I'm also not the biggest fan of GoodReads or Shelfari as I don't find them as easy to use - although to be honest, I haven't explored either one like I have Library Thing.
I was originally going to try to keep my book-self and my personal-self apart on sites like Facebook and MySpace, but found myself giving up, and I'm kind of glad I did. It is fun to keep up with EVERYONE bookish and relatives alike. I do find that I don't post many of my blog posts to Facebook though - just when I feel really strongly about a book or post.
I think if I could only belong to one site, it would have to be Facebook. I've got a lot of relatives that I've been able to find and keep in touch with via the site - even some in Norway. I'm not willing to give that up, although Library Thing is a close second. :)
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
