Are you part of FB, Twitter or Pinterest? Do you use them to keep up with others or just to play games and keep your own thoughts?

FB I check obsessively from my phone all day...and when I'm on JM too. I don't post lots, I use it to keep up with people...and I don't play games. I love pinterest and pin lots of recipes and stuff to do with Cam. Twitter I don't have...my sister keeps trying to convince me but it just doesn't appeal to me.

I have FB and Pinterest but no Twitter. I pretty much only use FB for the games, and pinterest I use for birthday ideas.

My mom thinks its amazing the resources we have now as parents. She constantly reminds me of taking me to the library to research stuff before google.

And she has facebook...she always likes things and never comments lol.

I used to work in a library before computers! We used a card catalogue to look things up and had to stamp paper cards in the backs of books. We had a big ceremony when we got the first computer in the library and then we had someone who's only job was to teach people how to use it. He came in every week night for 2 hours to sit there an help people. I just aged myself didn't I?

I remember the card system...its sad that I haven't signed anything out since then. I go for the programs, but never take books or anything out.

I only take books out in the summer when the kids don't have the school library.

My mom just got her first laptop complete with internet this year. She signed up for FB and plays games but I don't think she has posted a status yet. It's kinda funny.

I used Facebook to keep up with friends and acquaintances, Twitter and Pinterest are just for contests.

I remember the stamp cards too. Now and then I will come across a book that still has a sleeve taped into it.

I just found out that one of the neighbour boys doesn't know how to read and he is 7. I would really like to help him out. He said his Mum is too tired to help him.

I use FB and Pinterest, but I don't have a personal twitter account, although I do have one for work. I use them a lot!

I use FB more than the others. Mostly to keep in touch with friends. I DO NOT play games and hate getting game invites.

Also use twitter for local news and info. Pinterest, I use sometimes and I just signed up for Instagram (mostly to monitor my daughter because her friends all use it).

I too grew up in a no computer generation with card books and researching through microfiche and typed my work on a typewriter.
