Facebook, Twitter, G+, Tumblr et al

Post by Sakhaiva on Thu Sep 22, 2011 11:17 pm

Think I have social media burnout.

Anyone else frustrated with Facebook and their change-a-rama? Wasn't FB supposed to be some sort of escapism? I know I'm late to the complaining bandwagon, but, the changes really are irking me.

That's right. I said 'irk'.

What about you guys? Feeling frustrated? Is it still fun?

I'm not sure why they can't just leave well enough alone! I find the changes to be quite annoying!

I took a weeklong break because of the changes. But then I missed the peeps.

Me too! The way it is right now, posts don't seem to be in order and sometimes they don't make much sense like that.

I'm seeing way too much stuff I don't want to see....and I suspect I'm not seeing the stuff I'd like to see! LOL

They are fast changing their UI to meet the competitive challenge arisen out of the entry of Google+. Irrespective of the concern what goes with the liking of their users segment. Lets see how people cope with this beta(for their features are changing too much at short intervals) stage of Facebook. Smile

Google+ is a wasteland. I have many friends there that I also have on Facebook. The difference, of course, is that people use facebook.

I wondered about that. I read a short article about how many people were on Google+ but have not heard one person say they wanted to set up an account or ask me why I wasn't on it.

theoretically I have one. I have never been since accepting the invite. Who has time to learn another set of menu and command that are probably going to change as fast as FB which I actually understand and have family and friends on.

I have a Google + account, as well....and I never use it. Everybody's on FB, so why do I need it?

I have Google + too, but that's only because I'm a freelance writer and the manager of the site(s) I work for most invited me. I don't use it much at all. All of my friends and family are on FB anyway and I only have so many hours in a day!

And I don't even know what Tumblr is. Maybe I need to get out more?

And SG, that is *adorable*! I love Peeps.
