Are you on Social Media? :)

Happy Friday guys!

 

As tomorrow, Saturday 30 June, is Social Media Day, I thought I'd ask you all which Social Media platforms you're using? Which ones do you enjoy the most or find most useful? Smiley Happy

 

You can find a list of the most popular Social Media sites (20) here.

 

I'm occasionally on Facebook myself, however lately I've got into Instagram and been spending more time there. I like to post photos of my cats, flowers and other summer-related things and PC games. I was very late to Snapchat, but have recently discovered it and find it amusing for selfies with ridiculous filters. joy I use Pinterest sometimes to get visual inspiration for various things.

 

As you might know, O2 is also on Twitter and Facebook where you can catch up on recent happenings and also get help. On Twitter and Facebook, you can get support from O2, and of course on our Community here we have customer-to-customer support available. Smiley Happy Have you checked out the rest of the channels yet (full list below)?

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I'm only on Facebook. But this is purely to save my games' progress when I move to a new phone. I do occasionally post but not very often. For some reason, loads of people want to friend me. I really can't work out why as I don't think I'm that interesting nor do I get about that much anymore and do any interesting activities.

Not interested in other social media sites. My days are full enough and if I'm going to chat online it'll be here on the forum where I've made some good friends and hope to make more the longer I'm a member. Not to mention the fact that conversation on the forum is far more interesting than any social media site 😉

I'm not actually on social media, other than community forums like this one. I did try Facebook once, but found it to be somewhat voyeuristic, so I abandoned it very soon after (they don't like you leaving though, do they  Smiley Wink). 

 

I've often toyed with the idea of signing up to Twitter, but I'm shocked at the lack of moderation on that platform, with people seemingly allowed to post inappropriate content, and being generally offensive towards each other.

I only use FB and the O2 forum

I have a select number of friends on FB.... all known to me personally.

On my PC, FB has Messenger down the right hand side and I can communicate quickly without using separate apps. 

I also belong to a F1 group on FB, where they discuss all things F1 (obviously).

I find that a great way to keep updated.

I don't use Twitter, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Instagram or anything else.

As they say 'Time is Fleeting'  (RHPS) wink

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

Thank you @Cleoriff for mentioning Whatsapp as I do use it to communicate with my friends. I send pictures and emojis for free, which I and my friends use a lot. I also Skype with friends in the US.

But in using Whatsapp and Skype I'm communicating with real friends who I know personally. The only online friends I want are here on this forum 😊

I'm exactly the same @Poppysmum my messages are one on one. I can't remember the last time I used SMS to contact my friends, we all have smartphones. I only text via SMS to reply to a survey, usually O2, as it happens laughing

omg...I hate groups so much!

Nobody seems to talk to each other eye to eye, instead sending whatsapp. The groups... Gosh, I'm in so many... Fire dept, work, old work, dutch course, youth fd, HazMat unit county, HazMat part north, admin-board FD, school...

 

I use Twitter and met many friends there who I met in person later and keep in touch on Facebook.

I also use instagram and some forums.

 

One friend I met on Twitter in 2009 (lives in the US) and we kept in touch visited me last december. We never called or cammed or something, we just wrote. And it was awesome! Smiley Very Happy
