Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedn: What Are They Good For?

Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedn are three popular social media websites that are used by a variety of people, for a variety of purposes.   My opinion on the best uses of all three are as follows:

Facebook.  Where to begin?  If you’re not on Facebook, then you are often perceived as someone who is either a hopeless luddite or as someone that has no friends.  (Even my grandmother has a Facebook account; and she actually checks it!)  Obviously, neither description is true.  However, there is an element of truth in each description, in the sense that people who use Facebook often do so for two main reasons: to stay in touch with friends and family, and in order to use technology as a way to market themselves and their message.  Indeed, Facebook is no longer used as just a way to connect with people.  Many businesses, church groups, and celebrities have their own Facebook page and use it to market their message.

Twitter, in my opinion, is best used for people that have a compulsive need to check and post on their Facebook account, many, many times a day.  Quite honestly, Twitter annoys me: but that could be a generational thing.

Linkedn.  As an aspiring professional, (a.k.a. a lowly college student) I hope to have a Linkedn account someday.  Linkedn is best used as a networking tool for professionals.  Much like Facebook, users can create a professional page, detailing their education and work experience, and then link their pages with other users that they might know professionally.  Basically, it’s like having a Facebook account for your professional life, rather than your personal life.
