    I sometimes use YouTube to upload videos, although I haven't used it that much lately and should get back into it eventually.
    I rarely use Twitter. It's usually just to send someone a quick message, if I can't get in contact with them in any other way.

    A friend is not someone you'll ever "meet" in one of those places, a proper friend is one you can see and meet up with. Try joining a sports club (if you're sporty) or a arts and crafts club. Do you have a local library or social centre, try there? I tend to find that if you just talk to people, they'll either respond or ignore and if they do respond, you may develop friendships that way. Supermarkets, bookstores, bus stops, all better options than crappy social media!

    As for social networking, I have a grand total of about 5 hours on them... but I think if you're in the forum "business" then using those sites is a absolute must. I only wish the crappy vb5 software would let me share content on my site to those places, although in one sense, it's a blessing, as it's something I am not looking forward to doing. Only twits do twitters!:D

    I did make that post somewhat tongue in cheek, I do have friends (aka people that tolerate me :D) but nevertheless that's good advice!

    Nope. I'm not on any of the biggies. No desire.
    I suck at small talk too. :ROFLMAO: I think it's related.

    Those who don't use it, do you find out what's happening in the world from news portals online or the old school way of watching the 6 o'clock news like most of us did a few years ago?

    There is a ton of fluff online but I have to say for up to the second news twitter beats everything else.
