Being an anti-social old phart I don't even look at any of the social media sites so I am afraid the chances of me following anything is remote to say the least. devil

When DC went to Face Book I followed, I still don't know why. I'll leave Twitter to Trump.

I quite like the surprise of a new issue without knowing what is going to be in it. Miffed that I'm going to miss the 'nuggets'.

It happens I have just been checking members email addresses for one of my clubs. 25% do not have email so twitter would be out of the question. I appreciate you are trying to reach the future generation but don't leave the primary demographic behind.

Unfortunately I've been forced onto Facebook because several forums I follow have migrated there but there is no chance at all I will use Twitter.

Oh, you are a predictably miserable bunch of reactionaries

The target audience is people who already use twitter but don't follow us! I can't see anyone joining Twitter just for my words of wit and wisdom...

It's not an either or, you know, and John, this is a social media site

why has Mytimemedia required you to push this stalking system - just allows yet more tracking by the various USA based companies

Another anti-social media. Who wants to tell the world that you have left your home empty!! Just been away for a month visiting Singapore, Sydney, New Zealand and Hong Kong, all the Asian people seem to see while on holday is their mobile phone screen. Caught a glimpse of a few after the required selfie in front of something and straight onto some social media network. Do they ever look up and take in the view, no wonder we moan about trying persuading youngsters to make something with there hands, they can't because they only have one hand as the phone is permanently in the other.

Just a moaner?

Well Neil,

I clicked on your Twitter link and had a look around, but I think I will stick with the ME forum. I guess I'm too old?

The young and the old in modern times

I'm not keen on non-independent sites after Yahoo

Places like BBC Basic lost thousands of hours of human effort when their policy changed, hundreds of years of human knowledge, gone after a stupid policy change

Best to have your own site, just in case

I use Twitter for the Ice Hockey, had a look at the ME/MEW account looks good. Add 1 more follower.

Sorry i don't associate withh twitts , tweets and twats or have anything to do with mugbook ! I would rather spend the rest of my life picking up a hot soldering iron with my butt cheecks than have anything to do with that garbage.

I also firmly believe that people that take selfies should be imprisoned for cruelty to cameras !

This forum is about as close to socail media as you will get me !
