Leo Laporte says nobody cares about Google Buzz and that this whole "social media" thing is like shouting into a vast echo chamber where no one can hear, because they're too busy shouting themselves.
I agree. Which is why I've killed off my Twitter and Facebook accounts.
So it's time to move on...

Also killed my Twitter-Account. Too distracting and therefore too expensive. And Facebook is for people whom I really have met.

I think that's a good way to do it!

I've pulled way back on Twitter. Looks like I will phase it out completely soon.
Facebook- I've actually stepped it up some. At least I get more than ONE clickthrough on links I post, unlike Twitter.
Yes, both are distractions but I won't say they are necessarily wastes of time. I mean, how important is it to stay in close touch with your good friends and family? It's priceless.

Thanks for your comments!!
I agree with you, but...
Do you feel that Facebook, because you feel connected, is actually keeping you from spending as much time with your family?
Personally, I think it can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, you know what is going on with people, which is great, but on the other, there isn't as much need for a phone call or visit.
So what is the balance?
I kept a personal Facebook account, by the way. Not using it was much, but it is very nice to have the ability to connect with people, if needed.

Well, I guess for some but I think it only depends on the person who is using it.
I agree that it may or may not affect a person’s life but surely it’s a great way of connecting to other people,friends and family.
And to the fact that Facebook always, always finds a way to keep people within their network.

Same here I killed my twitter account since I realized that it really doesn’t do any good for me. I don’t know what others think but for me it’s history.
