Everyone owes it to themselves to spend a day setting up a profile for each site on every major social network
You couldn't even pay me to join such sites. And it's nothing to do with the privacy - which is a major bane atm for a certain site.
I don't want to tell the world that I am stuck in a lift with Stephen Fry, or some other drivel that I feel I must tell everyone instantly.
It's nothing about being an old fart not liking technology. Far from it. It's pointless, gimmicky, flash in the pan, and will no doubt, be overtaken by the next fad.
Remember that million dollar pixel thingy that happened a few years back. Then you had all the wannabe's making similar ones, just to find that "the magic income" didn't happen for them. They died of death. Hopefully, this fad will do too.
Do it, if you want to. But IMO, 99% of you will be wasting your time for the little that you will gain out of it.
Yes, some will say "I'm doing ok", but would you have done better if your site was high up in the SERPS ? Probably.
