For news, it's the New York Times. Then there are several blogs that I check. This is the only message board. I hang out here waiting for approvals or call backs (when I should be doing bookkeeping, which I need to do right now...)
Like everyone here, no doubt, I created a FB account to help clients manage their Pages as an admin. People found and they wanted to be "friends" and I thought, "well, sure." Now I know all of this stuff (politics, mostly) about these casual acquaintances that I was much happier not knowing. So, I never go there unless it's for work.
My sister has an FB account and did not friend me because "I don't want you seeing what idiots my friends here are." Right.
I'll check one or two of my own sites just to confirm they're still online as well and that my host hasn't done something stupid.

email, gmail, txt message, WebmasterWorld, server logs. News in English and FR, at least 4 newspapers and my latest as I am not afraid to say Al Jazeera.
In my very first job I was working closely with the CEO he was every morning fast reading 5 or 6 newspapers representing all politics and financial opinions including the communist newspaper One needs to have a broader sight on many events in order to get at least some sort of ideas of what's boiling down.
