Social Media redundancy

23 posts in this topic

The Pinterest thread got me to thinking.... Is anyone else annoyed by social media redundancy? You know, the people that put the same exact update in their Facebook feed, their Twitter feed, their Google+ feed (I know, who uses that anyway?), etc. Quite a few of the people that I'm Facebook friends with, I also follow on Twitter and I see this happen all of the time. It really gets annoying.

For my own part, I try to keep them separated. Facebook is for my mundane, daily updates. Twitter is for my quirky and/or raunchy random thoughts or sports-related diatribes. Google+ is for... OK, I don't really use Google+. I see people doing this with Pinterest now, apparently. If whatever you're tweeting or pinteresting is going on your Facebook, then what is the point of having the Twitter and/or Pinterest account?

Ugh.

Back to MySpace and Friendster with this guy!

No, mainly because I've never seen a reason to follow amyones twitter ramblings.

This is my opinion...

Facebook is good for catching up with old friends/classmates and stalking hot chicks.

Twitter is good for specific events... football games, TV shows, etc. that you want to talk about in real time, and for things like news/updates/scores, etc.

Google + is totally redundant and useless.

Myspace is... dead.

These people that sit and post "dropped the kids off at school" and other daily nonsense are stupid be it facebook, twitter or anything else.

I have been friends with this one girl for a little over a year...about 7 months ago..she started dating this new guy...

she now posts how much she loves him on his page..every possible awesome thing they're doing at the moment and every time their dogs are asleep and cuddling together

I am slowly beginning to despise her...of course I'm happy that she found a good guy, but do we all need to know a fuging play by play of your relationship???

I have actually now unsubscribed from her completely because reading her crap is seriously making me want to stab her in the eyeball. I'm honestly not on there that much..but she posts THAT often

*sigh*

Twitter has taken over IMO as sadly the best news source around. Even with things like the Sandusky scandal, Twitter was blowing up about things on campus before CNN, ESPN, etc. even knew about them and they were using Twitter to get info.

Facebook is to waste time/stalk people.

Google+, just no.

Myspace- LULZ

It took me about 5 years to join FB so I imagine I should be joining the Twitter community sometime in late 2014.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
