I may play with Twitter, occasionally linking back to my journal posts, but I honestly can't stand Facebook. It, like MySpace, is gaudy and hard to use and just a pain in the ass. Plus, I'm forced to use the last two because of my family (who really don't give a crap about what interests me). So I don't want to see the little Twitter/Facebook do-hicky when I go to post a comment.

Other than that I don't give a crap.

As for pingbacks, those are just disturbing. I don't want to know if someone is talking badly about me behind my back and I don't want things people say in my journal to be linked back to if the discuss is private.

I don't really have a point, I'm just putting my 1/2 cent into the general discussion while catching my breath.

I like FB. It lets me have really casual but more regular contact with people I don't see very frequently - I keep up on what they & their kids are doing without getting into those email exchanges that no one knows how to end. Plus, my friends do a bunch of interesting things, so I pick up links to causes, restaurants, screenings, gigs, etc that I might miss otherwise. For that it's great.

I've also moved a lot of my cat blogging/bitching about politics/talk about the building to FB, where it's me keeping my friends updated on my life. Which I think may be prep for moving away from journal-based blogging entirely...

My opinion of FB is obviously means its just not my thing and I'm not trying to harsh anyone's squee for it. I know my family uses it daily to keep tabs instead of the comm and accounts I'd set up for them on DW. (but I really hate those games friends/family keep sending me on FB)

Heck, with Twitter I've had an account for a year and just now really starting to get into it because I kept forgetting I had a frelling account. lol
