For those of you post-college, how much do you use it? Do you still find it useful?

I don't mind google+ but the novelty factor is wearing off. According to tech sites, traffic is freefalling weekly and retention rate isn't very good. Brand engineering is part of the problem. Twitter is doing alright, but still mostly effective for celebs. Facebook is looked at as the devil with the privacy issues and the bad rep it's gotten lately. Do you use any of the 3? Which one is the best?

I'm curious only because the 3 sites are so different from one another.

I use twitter and google+ (basically for the NT circle i miss threads and some people comment about them there)

I am post college and deleted my facebook about a year ago. I don't like constantly knowing what everyone is up to. I like living in ignorance. I also think people take it tooooo seriously so I just quit it all together.

Twitter is nice to just see whats going on in the world. Stay up on current events, sports, entertainment. T

Facebook is absolutely useless pre-college, it better be useful during/after college.

I check it periodically but unless I need to hit someone up I get off quick.

Not sure if serious. Do you have one because if you did and used it effectively that wouldn't be the case.

NTwitter entertains. facebook is getting worse and worse by the day, but I still use it. I made a google + but never used it, don't plan to. My sorority has its own social network for sisters only, I'd say I use that more than everything else put together.

I love twitter. Almost all my friends are on there. My timeline is nothing but hilarious and informing on a day to day basis.

I've been on Twitter more and more since I made a new account a little less than two month ago. Some of the tweets/updates actually help me stay informed with what's going on. There are funny and interesting tweets here and there  that help me pass time.

Seriously

For those still on fb, do you not mind the amount of info that has come out on snooping and privacy issues? I'll say this, fb sucks a lot more than when it was .edu accounts only.

Google+ may become great but it will take innovation to pull people. 99% of the folks I know still have no idea what it is or how it works.

FB is predominantly used as a dating site for my peers. Don't see much use besides that. Twitter is fun just reading other people posts. I don't have any friends that use i so I don't post anything.

I'm still in college. I'm over it, if I wanted to know about someones life I'd just ask them. And for the whole keeping in touch thing, if I really wanted to keep in touch I would have their number. The whole world doesn't need to see our wall-to-wall. IMO, Facebook is just a cry for attention

Pretty much.

that's why I can't take these discussions seriously...you either have people who don't know what they're talking about or the people who think they're above it all

Yep.

I deleted facebook earlier this year, haven't missed it. Haven't used google+ in a while, and rarely go on twitter. It just all seems so pointless. And lol, why would I ever invest in a social networking company? What revenue can a twitter produce? Facebook? Not enough to satisfy a $100 billion estimated value.
