I have been reading Fiona's latest blog posts and discovered that she has subscribed to Twitter. Is anyone else here on that site? I can't bring myself to join - it seems so dis-spiriting to me, am I the only one?
My OH, who owns and runs a bicycle shop, has been 'joined up' by his daughter who runs the web based part of the business and it does, apparently, increase business. Though when I was at the shop this morning, I saw a very odd looking bike that had been marked down from £6,725.00 to £4,275.00 and wondered if Twitter might help with selling it...
I'll try that again!

Remember, I said I'd never do Facebook, and I'm on Facebook now. I keep telling myself its so I can post pictures, but its enjoyable too.
Ah yes. I, apparently, am also on Facebook. Though I am not clear about what it is for. The people who crop up on the page that I see are...hmm...not that interesting...?
I'll try that again!
Fiona joined Twitter on the advice of a friend who found that it really improved her business.
TBH I am quite a Luddite when it comes to Twitter because I fail to see its attraction. Probably a generation gap thing. I was never much into texting either. But we must go with the times I guess.
I think Facebook is great for people who like to keep in contact. We find that the blog and forum is plenty of contact for us! I don't know how we would fit in the time to do a proper job on Facebook as well, but there are murmurings in the background
Never knowingly underfed
I'm on Facebook too and find it useful for keeping in touch with friends and family. And yes it is fun too. I don't know anything about Twitter really and I am not sure I want to. I think I am frightened that if I register I will get involved. Does it have the same security features that Facebook has? Anybody know more than I do?
Old teachers never die, they just lose their class
I am dubious about the games too TA on FB. It felt really weird this morning, I had a 1/2 chat with a guy who used to work for me 3 years ago. He was always a bit of a loveable rogue and out and about at the weekends till alll hours, we were "chatting" about recipes,him sending me links to recipe books he uses and me doing the same with him, whereas it would normally be xbox games and football that he was interested in!! How people change.
I enjoy keeping up with folks on facebook but sometimes get requests from youngsters and wonder why on earth they bother as they never interact and talk a lot about getting blotto over the weekend - something I find both pointless and dispriting. Deleted one young man after certain rather obscene comments and he was offended .
Eco-Gites is on Facebook (for publicity). Because it is a businees page people can "like" me but I can't be their "friends". Am I allowed to add the link? - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lenault-France/Eco-G.....100?v=wall
