Can happily say that i have never used and have no desire to ever have a twitter account or follow anyone. There are good uses for it but too many people use it to share the most boring, inane, pointless and egofilled garbage that does not deserve to ever be known by anyone.

Same goes for Facebook, once had an account but deleted it as it was never used and i was getting invites from people i have never met or wanted to meet/know wanting me to be their friends. I hate this idea that you need to be connected with the rest of the world when most of what is said is by idiots or just crap. I dont believe for a second that life is any better with either and when you have 20,000 followers, 376 'friends' and a wall (whatever that is for).

Yeah, I absolutely agree with you. I would like to delete my account, but of course the data never really disappears, which pisses me off insanelya-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I'm glad I don't have Facebook or Twitter either. It's all a lot of pointless egomaniacal drivel. I do have tumblr though, but mainly for Beatles stuff. I just follow other people, and browse around, I don't post anything myself. I somewhat despise people who worry about how many friends/followers they have or who liked their status update. I have better things to think about.

I love Twitter. I see very little inane or pointless stuff on there, perhaps because I choose not to follow inane and pointless people. It's also a great way to kill time - dip in, find out what people are talking about and linking to, then go exploring.

I rarely put any personal stuff on Facebook as I don't trust Mark Zuckerberg with the info. Generally I only use it for sharing links to interesting articles etc. I'd kill my account tomorrow but there are too many people I love on there - I'd miss knowing what they were doing. And of course people aren't going to leave en masse to another social networking site because they've invested too much time building up the current one.

It's odd how different people use these things, though. I recently had to do a clean-up for Ellie's (younger) step-sister and realised she'd basically filled up her Facebook account with crap applications which were dragging down her PC. It's frightening some of the things people put on there, and how they harvest friends they don't even know.

With Facebook you can close youre account, tho you still exist in facebook world, or you can delete it, but you have to search for the how to. If you do want to delete it there is a 2 week window where if you log on or contact facebook (or something like that) then your account can be saved, but after that it disappears forever (or is meant to). Ive never went back to check.

To be fair, that happened before Facebook and doubtless will happen after Facebook. People will download any program that sounds useful even if it is totally useless, people will forget to untick "download the toolbar for your browser", people will click on the pop-up ad telling them to download a free screensaver or that they are the 999,999th visitor to the website.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Arent those the type of people who claim 'free' points for everything and then complain that they have been ripped off?

You've described me right there. I used to love facebook, but now I find it so obnoxious, my classmates (not friends) just type such dumb things, I just go there to send an inbox to my real friends and then I'm gone, if some one talks to me I try not to talk a lot. I think I'm an introvert (I am) and I want to delete my account but I want to keep in touch with the people I really care. And twitter is fun for beatle related topics or if you follow accounts that tweet interesting stuff that you didn't know, the bad part is that a lot of my "classmates" are creating twitter accounts and they're following me, my God a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 

I guess I'll create another twitter or just find somwhere else to be haha
