Re: How important is social networking for you?
Took me a long time to use my Twitter account but now I use it more than Facebook. Basically I use it for 4 things: Fitness account, science-tech, sf and news. Many times I have gotten news reports local and national before it appears anywhere else. I get inside info first from Twitter, and I have hundreds of like-minded fit people there too.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
