A good friend of mine refuses to use Facebook preferring instead to communicate with others via her blog and yahoo groups. She feels they are less risky and she has more control over who can see her comments.
I tried a couple of groups but found them more difficult to use, limited in the numbers of people reached and irritating in the way they clog my email inbox. Google+ didn’t really ‘float my boat’ either.
I’ve heard that there are now new and improved places to network than FB and Twitter. Have you tried any? What did you think?
