Social Media redundancy

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

I use facebook for friends.

Twitter, I use strictly as a sports/news feed. Therefore there is no overlap. I highly recommend Twitter for sports news/talk.

I've unsubscribed from so many of my "friends'" feeds that it would probably be better if I just deactivated...

Most any status update I have contributed recently has been a music video, which I'm pretty sure none of my "friends" care about either... lol...

If anything, Facebook has made me lose more faith in the human population...

Hard to believe that you had any to start with... people in general are incredibly stupid.

The stuff that some people post and repost on fb is incredible...

Funny... someone had posted that "god in the clouds" pic on here in a thread a few weeks back that was really a photoshopped goatse pic... then I saw it show up on fb where some of my friends had liked it... then my MOM liked it and shared it... :rolleyes: I didn't have the heart to message her and tell her what it was... so I just let it go...
