I figured this would be a good meme to do so we can all
stalk follow each other on different networks as well.
Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your blog post. Delete my answers and fill in your own. These memes are all SL related, so please only share the networks that you use with your SL avatar. It’s ok if you talk and share RL stuff on there (we all do that sometimes). Also, don’t forget to link your post in the comments so I can come read!
What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
Flickr in August of 2007.
Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?
Facebook Page (the one I use most – For blogging)
Facebook Profile (for games)
Google+ Page (for the blog)
Google+ Profile (for my avatar)
Tumblr (I just share my favorite quotes there)
Second Life Profile
If there are some you are listing above that have private timelines or you prefer not to add too many people to, just make a note beside them please because I will be going on a
stalking following spree when I read your posts!
Which network is your favorite?
This one’s a tough one. I like each one for its own reasons. I love the talented flickr community. I learn a lot about social networking and blogging on Twitter. I get a lot of encouragement and support from the Facebook community. I guess I would have to say Plurk, as I share the most of myself there and I’m quite attached to some of the people on my timeline. The plurkers have been there for me through a lot of tough times.
Which network is your least favorite?
I know this is going to seem strange but it’s actually Plurk as well. I have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with plurk. I think my main issue is that I have over 1800 people on my list there, so it can get very overwhelming. Also, when you have a bunch of very active members in a community thrown together like that, there is bound to be a lot of conflict. I know there are conflicts on every network, but I’m not so involved in the others as much to notice it. So although plurk is one of my favorite social networks, it is also one of my least favorites as it is the only network that I actually get tired of and wish to take a break from, from time to time.
Which network do you have the most amount of connections?
Ummmmm, not sure but I’m guessing that it would be my Facebook page.
How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
I think lately I’ve been reading/using them more on my phone.
What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)
On my android I like to use plurka for plurk, the official twitter app and Hootsuite for Twitter, Facebook Pages Manager App, Flickr app, Pinterest app and of course Google+ app.
What do you like most about social networking sites?
The information being shared. I especially love twitter for that. I have learned so much about blogging and social media by following various hashtags and different RL bloggers.
What do you like least about social networking sites?
I’m pretty sensitive and get down/depressed easily, so I like to stay positive about life and anything I am doing in general. Sometimes, it’s hard to do that when you get a constant stream of negativity coming through to you from various networks. That’s when I usually take a step back and focus on something else.
Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work?
I feel that there is a trick to every social network. Before you sign up and just start spamming your information, it’s good to get a feel of what the community there is like and how to use the network efficiently.
What is your main reason for using Social Networks?
I would be lying if I didn’t include promoting my blog; but I also learn a lot from them and pick up great tips to improve my blogging and photography. However, with all that being said, my main reason is to socialize and connect with like minded people who just want to share a laugh or a bit of themselves and to escape the pressures of the real world.
I know not all of you are into social media so a lot of you will probably not participate in this meme. But, I figured I’d do it anyways as it will be good to get some networking going and may actually encourage some of you to join us. If not, then I’ll try and do an easier meme next week! :P
Finally, just wanted to give a big thank you to all those that have participated in my goofy memes thus far. I’ve been having a lot of fun reading them. Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes at any time. You’ll find them all under my memes category.
