myspace: No, I'm 29 and married. It would be a little sad for me to need this at my age and life situation. Somehow, I managed to find a life recently. I tried it and canceled after a mere week or two a long time ago.

facebook: No, I'm 29 and married. It would be a little sad for me to need this at my age and life situation. Somehow, I managed to find a life recently. I tried it and canceled after a mere week or two a long time ago.

twitter: i tried it for awhile, now it's bored me as well.

Basically, Jason Segal said it best. If I'm not talking to you, it's not because I don't know how to find you.
:-b :-b

I don't use any of them either. I'm married with kids and while it would be good to find out what some old friends are doing, all the people I know primarily use FB and MS for hooking up. I don't need some ex trying to contact me and causing an argument with my wife and I wouldn't want that to happen in reverse either.

I do wish I knew about these before they went big though. I would love to have gotten their stock at the ground floor!

I don't see how age or marital status has anything to do with FB. At what age are you 'too old' to keep in touch with people on a social website? At what point are you 'too married' to be able to use a social website? I'm sure some people use it for hooking up, but not everyone. Just keep your profile private so only you can allow people in to your page/post on your wall/read anything about you/etc., and there would be no issue of ex's or stalkers making life difficult.

I got facebook, mainly 'cause my kids are there. But it's kinda fun hooking up with old friends too. And the quizzes are kinda fun too.

Great, then don't talk to people you don't want to talk to on FB. What does that have to do with anything? :-?

What went unmentioned is that I already spend about an hour a day on FFCafe and then more time on email, paying bills, etc. I already feel like it's too much time away from my kids and my wife. If my wife and I both got a social network site, between work, the computer, working out, and the need to relax from time to time, neither of us would play with our kids.

I'm fine with the phone and an occasional email.

I like myspace for band stuff, show info, tour dates and whatnot, I use Facebook more to keep in touch with my peeps.

maybe i misinterpreted your quote...anyway, personally...i have no use for the social networking sites...as an older, married guy i dont feel a need to reconnect with people i havent seen in 10 years...i have enough friends that i can email or see in person when i want.

not dogging the people that like it, it's just not for me

Since my post was involved in this as well i thought I would also say I didn't mean to offend. Upon rereading mine... I think some people could read "it would be sad for me" and misinterpret it as: "it would be sad for a person" ... not true. To each there own. For me... that would be digressing. I'm no longer around here much because I'm spending more time in real life with my friends and family and mostly my wife. We are traveling and walking and biking and running and enjoying smelling the roses (or lilacs as the case may actually be :)). I can get in contact with all the people that matter to me as an older married man. At bare minimum, I can find someone I want to talk to that I haven't in a long time if the need arises. Needing a social networking site at my stage in life would be a digression back FOR ME. Other people love them and have fun... cool for them. I'm with Dan on his above statement. I think it's just a different stage of life or attitude towards life.
