    I follow a lot of inspiration Instagrammers so I actually check that daily.  Facebook is my morning news (literally since I get to read WSJ, NYT, The Economist, Local news, there).

    Instagram and Pinterest. I deleted Facebook months ago, and gosh did that feel amazing!  I hated facebook because of status updates and that’s basically what Twitter is, so no thanks.

    Twitter for work, but I love it because it’s very focused on specific things, not personal status updates.

    I put my personal fb on pause. But I use a page for work. I try to ignore the annoying things, just interact with the people I want to and move on.

    I’m a big fan of Facebook and Instagram. I use them for different things so I can’t pick!

     

    ETA: actually I think I like Facebook more now that I have sought out the FB pages of all the dogs I follow on Instagram. No shame! Shout out to Doug the Pug, Daily Dougie, and Boo the Pomeranian lol

    #1 is My Fitness Pal – I’ve met (yes, actually met) some awesome people there.

    #2 Instagram – it’s a mix of friends, family, and fitness people.

    I’ve deleted Facebook twice in the past, but I’ve learned that it’s my family’s only form of communication, so if I want to keep abreast of everything… -_-

    Twitter I use to keep tabs on my oldest child and follow news updates. Not very social there. 

    I came here via Pinterest when I was looking at resetting my ring and got sucked into these boards.

    Facebook, because I like full stories, not snapshots or snappy tweets.

    IG – I follow a lot of interior design, wedding (slowly un-subbing from these) and fashion blogs… it’s a quick fix

    FB is next – I don’t love it but I still use it

    FWIW – when people mention employers looking you up, it’s not really an issue if you have your page totally locked down and private. You can’t even search my name on Facebook and find me!

    I use instagram and snapchat almost exclusively.  I basically went silent on twitter once I got snapchat–my snapchat feed is very exclusive (unlike Twitter, Facebook, Instagram where I feel the need to accept most students, colleagues, relatives, etc.) and so I can be more myself on there.

    I don’t have a Facebook. I don’t know how to use Twitter. So its Instgram and some snapchat – both of which are on lockdown. 

    I have no idea how to use anything else.

    Instagram by far! I’m pretty active on my Facebook business page because I’m a wedding photographer (so I’ve kind of got to be), but personally and professionally use Instagram much more. I just like that it’s so much more simple – less drama. 

    My snapchat is literally only my cloesest of close friends. I figure anything I’m snapping I would only want seen by those handful of people. 

    I don’t use Twitter. I set one up, but never understood it, so I never used it.
