Strawberry's Social Media Meme


“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland


   Folks, this is the mother of all memes. Strawberry Singh' Social Media Meme is pretty in depth, and what I will appreciate most about this meme, will be ALL the connections we make. Strawberry is an absolute genius!!!
   I wanted to take a bit to plug in Strawberry's website here (for whomever is lurking) because like so many of you, her blog was my starting point and inspiration in taking that blogging leap. I could have chosen anything to yack about, Breedables, Events, People, Third Party Viewers Oo (I jest). But the wonderful world of SL Fashion has way too many goodies and the horizon is ever changing, never the same, regardless of templates and drama. And Strawberry's website is chock FULL of information and links to other tuts, bloggers, tips and oh gosh.. we could go on..*pours you some tea*
   So before that atrocious clock tells me its time to go to bed, let's jump right in to the Social Media Meme! (Do click on the hyperlinks to get back to Strawberry's blog and try the challenge for yourself)
______________________________________________________________________________
What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?
Facebook 2010 (I think) Back then I was told to put RL info to keep it from being deleted. Not sure if that worked or was legit.
Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar? (I've listed in order by frequency of use)
Facebook- Still use this as main social network
Tumblr- I use often and do short posts here
Pinterest - Have you all checked out Eysium Hynes' Pinterest? You simply must! I go here before any of the feeds.
Koinup- More comfortable here than Flickr atm, Community is very supportive
Plurk- Its not much, but I have one. 
Google+ Good resource!
Flickr- Still contemplating premium membership

Forums: (They're really not considered social media like we know it now to be, but in my RL I am an avid forumer. These are some SL ones I belong to)
SL Universe- Had one for spamming Club Events
SL Community Forums - same as above
SL Profiles- cleared it but its still listed

Another tidbit: I've used Google Docs for social office networking group/event/whatever planning as well. (8 people on a google doc planning out events for the month mhm fun)
Which network is your favorite?
Right now it would have to be tumblr. The ease of use is a + for me and works well with my time because I do most of my lurking on mobile O.O

Which network is your least favorite?
This is going to go against the current, but it would have to be Flickr. I realize that in order to have more space you need to pay for it there. I use places like Koinup, Facebook, tumblr, photobucket, or other photo sharing and storage sites where I don't have to pay a fee.
Which network do you have the most amount of connections?
Facebook
How/Where do you usually read/use most of your networks?
My phone
What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)
Android really is a wonder huh lol... Lumiya all the way. It's not a social network app, but another viewer for SL. I still use it for socializing though! Next would have to be tumblr, then Facebook for Android. I also use imo.im for Skype with my SL friends.
What do you like most about social networking sites?
Other than keeping connected (plugged in, addicted, whatever), I like to see what's new, what's going on with my friends, who's doing what event, what's new on the fashion scene, your awesome pictures and finds, and will admit I read the gossy sometimes :/
What do you like least about social networking sites?
Status updates that read like, "_______ is tired. That is all". That drives me crazy and I've stopped doing that! (told on myself right there!!!)
Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work? 
I feel that there is a trick to every social network. Before you sign up and just start spamming your information, it’s good to get a feel of what the community there is like and how to use the network efficiently. (I agree with Strawberry here)
What is your main reason for using Social Networks?
Before I ever started blogging, I used social networking for connecting off world. I was in and out of college the first year of my main avatar's life, and social networks were a means for me to keep in touch with my friends and SL job. During my stint with Club Velvet Manor, I joined more off world networks in order to promote the club and their events. For my blog I am finding that I am comfortable using Facebook, tumblr, Koinup and commenting on your alls' blog posts too! Social Networks = Lurking prowess. 

Many thanks for another rockin' meme, Strawberry! Here's to making those connections everyone~
