i use both facebook and twitter for the latest updates from whatever sites i check, music etc... but i really don't see the point in exposing your life on a timeline for everyone to see.

Our generation is attracted to things that consume our time. Facebook and twitter are websites we can go on for hours on end and accomplish absolutely nothing in that amount of time. I've noticed that facebook will only rot your mind if you let it. Everything is good in moderation so to speak.

Facebook used to be pointless, but I went on a huge deleting spree and now the only people I am friends with are interested in my life, and I am interested in theirs. Facebook stays relevant that way and doesnt get boring

IMO, Twitter should only be for people in the entertainment industry or people who have a lot of followers. Facebook is left to the unwashed masses.

I don't know how I got to this state, let me out of my cage, 'cause I'm dyin'...

u guys are fuckin idiots its a natural human desire/need to communicate and interact with people and social media allows people to do that at all hours/locations. stop trying to be some fuckin super intellectual faggot above everyone else because youre not on facebook or twitter or openly against it.

I'll tell you what's the point of twitter. I'm in NY,I like fashion. I follow some people that talk about fashion. They get to know me through twitter. I get invited to fashion events. I go. I meet these people,and get a leg into this industry. Does no one else know how to use resources?

no one ever said it wasn't and no one ever implied that they were better than anyone, so take that stick out of your ass and chill the fuck out.

twitter can be the most useful tool to someone who uses it right, but its been twice fucked over by kids and directionless people.. twitter is for staying up to date on competitors, advisers, analysts, athletes, etc... the fuckin mob that is american youth ruined it.. just like they ruined fb.. used to be students/alumni, but now its open to tyquesha and her 3 kids and two baby daddies be usin it to spy n shit, in order to get on maury... mass extermination in the form of a natural disaster is necessary to save twitter/fb.

seriously though, narcissism? what the hell are you talking about facebook allows people to share pictures, events, messages seamlessly and stores them for future reference. if you dont want other people seeing your shit you can simply make it so. its really not that complicated. yall dont have to overthink it and make it about some larger social or personal issue someone may have when in reality it allows people to connect outside of work/school and share ideas, pictures, memories etc... if its all about narcissism or stalking like some of you are implying then why would adults become increasingly more active on facebook? surely your parents/uncles and aunts arent on facebook because they're narcissistic or trying to stalk someone. its because theyre trying to reconnect with people they once knew and facebook allows us to do the same and maintain connections we already have. thats going really deep into it but im just tired of people trying to critique social networking and trivializing it while doing it on the same platform.
