Social media can offer many positives if used responsibly, and your use of Twitter is a good example of that. It’s great for sharing information in real-time, particularly in the kind of situations that you’ve described. But on a bigger scale, where the man in the street gets to have his say on some of the big issues, it’s not always a reliable source of information, hence all the “fake news” that is circulated.

I don't understand those who use their Twitter timeline as a "blog" - I have seen a few who do.

 

As for the argybargy between those with opposing views on a subject, yes, that in itself means the Twittersphere is rife with opinion, not fact, and so is "fake news" generated...

 

Good points, @Anonymous.

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I watch some stuff on Youtube (unboxings, some product videos for servers, networking gear and troubleshooting for the same) and have a  profile on LinkedIn.

 

Dabbled with FB in 2007 but it bored me so got rid, never been tempted back.

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I had not considered LinkedIn as a Social Network, now you come to mention it, @Anonymous.

As I am too tight to pay for it, perhaps it is yet another social network... 😏

@pgn

 

Nope, I don't pay the fee.

 

 

If a fee becomes mandatory and it's above 20 quid a year, I'm not paying it.

Re: Are you on Social Media? :)

I used to be on Twitter every day some years ago when I was connected to a lot of different TV series fans around the world, and wanted to read all the spoilers of everything before episodes aired in my country. Some of my friends use Twitter like a newsfeed as they follow several newspapers there.

 

Oh yes @Glory1 that's a good point about game progress and FB - I also backup my progress there. It would be a nightmare otherwise! Smiley Surprised

 

@Glory1@Poppysmum@ComaChameleon I use WhatsApp on a daily basis and it's my main platform for communicating with my parents who are in a different country. Mostly one-to-one chat, but I do have a few group chats going on too. On WhatsApp are you able to mute group notifications one at a time or is it all or nothing?
