I try to avoid Google as much as possible so this is roughly how I start my day:
1. Outlook.com (email)
2. My own forums (OK this doesn't count)
3. Twitter (see what's going on)
4. AdSense earnings check
6. Other various forums
I used to use Google Reader daily but got off that crack, so I sometimes get newsletter e-mails but also follow many of the same sites via twitter now.
Personally I haven't seen much value out of the facebook thing, don't have a use for linkein, digg, reddit, pinterest, etc.
