Social Media and SL

Yesterday I was going through my old SL links/bookmarks and went to visit ASNers.  Apparently the site no longer exists.  Not a surprise, but then I became curious what other SLers are using for social media.

I used to have them all – Fakebook, Tweeter, ASN, Plurk, and a few others, but I don’t use them anymore.  I suppose I have a love/hate relationship with social media.  I love how connected it can make you, but I hate how most of the companies actually work.

I refuse to use Fakebook (see here and here) for SL or RL.  I don’t agree with the policies and practices of the company, so I don’t use them.  I kept using other sites for awhile, but I ultimately decided that it was too much of a time waster – not enough benefits for the returns I was getting.

I was curious, though, what everyone else is using.  Fakebook, Tweeter, Plurk, and Flickr I know, but is there an alternative site out there?  I did some searching and found Avatarbook and Onlinker – are there any others I missed?

  1. Flickr and FaceBook seems to be the most popular for bloggers, followed by Instagram. The rest are extras.

    1. I’m on Flickr and I had a Facebook, but I have real issues with their company ethics (or lack thereof), so I’m still looking for other options.
