Social media agita

Does your YOUTUBE DIGG GOOGLE+
Has your FACEBOOK LINKEDIN with TWITTER?
MYSPACE is no longer DELICIO.US and as a result is no more.

Obviously I'm being a bit facetious, but today I was looking at web icons for social media and tagging and it dawned on me how ridiculous we've become embracing nearly anything labelled "social". I should say up front that I'm a huge fan of social media and leveraging technology but I have to wonder where is the tipping point? I wonder which of these sites will still be around and relevant in a decade and which will follow in the footsteps of MySpace.

What social media tools / sites do you regularly use? What social media tools totally flummox you?

I used to be obsessed with Myspace. Now I don't use Myspace, facebook, or any other social network... except for blogger :)

It's so odd, with all this social interaction on the net are we becoming less social in reality. I'm more in touch with an online friend in the US than I am with a mate that lives a mile up the road!


I used to love MySpace, then it was taken over by the News Corp/News Int Murdoch empire and well, nothing was private anyway, so stopped using it.
