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?
