Like Twitter and facebook.

Which do you prefer?

If you are on twitter do you like the fact that everyone can see what you post?

If you are on facebook, do you have a lot of friends or are you particular about who you friend?

Do you play any of the games that are linked to these social networks?

I have accts on both mostly because friends pressured me to make them. Don't use them much though, FB in particular I really don't like and prefer to be here.

im on facebook, most of my "friends" on there are mostly people i went to school/collage with and never see, i have a small group of real friends on there ut i mostly use it to keep in contact with my family as they are all in England and France and this way im still in their daily lives
I'm not as fussy as i should be though, my account was hacked last year because of one of the games i used to play on there - yoville - someone hacked my email and facebook just to steal some virtual crap. I dont really play games on there anymore after that. kind of ruined it on me.

I'm on both.
I love Twitter! I don't mind that all my followers see my posts, all my followers, with the exception of Matt Goss, are NKOTB fans so most tweets are about the guys anyway and I don't think Donnie Wahlberg minds my tweets either, yup he's following me too, so you can see why I love Twitter . I never tweet anything I only want certain people to see, I'll DM people if need be.
I have under 200 friends on FB, a mix of people I know in RL and others that I've gained through twitter! I play a few games on FB, mainly Bubble Witch Saga, Hidden Chronicles & Words with Friends.

I have accounts with both but don't use the twitter one at all, its one ive never taken to. I love facebook though and find it a great way to keep up with family and friends. There is nobody im friends with that are not family or havn't met in a significant way (like through jm), i'm very protective over who im friends with and who i give access of my pictures to. Its very handy for our family as we have lots of family in the UK and South Africa and it helps us interact with them as a family on a daily basis and we have gotten to know them so much better than we did before there was facebook. My dad found his long lost brothers family through facebook a year and a half ago, dad was looking for his brother for 40 yrs and in the end it came down to facebook, so we will be eternally grateful to it. Unfortunatly dad's brother had passed away when contact was made but we now have a huge family in South Africa, 4 of whom we actually have met already in london last summer and my aunt maybe coming to england next year so we will travel over again to meet her.

I'm on FB and Twitter and I probably use them both equally. I only have people I trust and believe to be my true friends on my FB friends list. I found out the hard way how people will use these sites to target people and bully them. I'm the same with Twitter. I follow a few celebrities on there and people who are friends. My privacy settings are high so that people are unable to find me.
