I am up to my third iteration of Facebook, and may be about to shut it down again. The privacy aspect I am less worried about than I am that I find the UI so annoying. Mostly though, I am not that "social".

Twitter, I like. I follow comedians and some friends...some of them live-tweet shows I am watching, making them far more entertaining than they are (@benpobjie and #masterchef is great fun), and I can follow live-tweeting of shows by all via #hashtags (eg. #glee) and feel I am watching it with fellow enthusiasts, or cynical humourists, like having a witty conversation in your empty loungeroom. Comedians trying new material, or just letting their reactions show to current events, is enjoyable. I don't tweet much, I follow few people (70 or so, most of whom are mostly lurkers like me, them often friends and acquaintances), so I am not overwhelmed. I don't tweet my every thought and movement, though I am prone to bursts at times (often iphonographs, of sunsets and such). I like Twitter - I enjoy its limitations, its necessary succinctness (something contrary to my own nature, as perhaps you can tell). I only use it on my phone though - I generally never access it at my computer.

Cheers,
Marc
