For my part yes I would use it. I have a Facebook account, but probably not for long as I was considering dumping it.
Since I do very little on Facebook and use it more to get a grip on what my family are doing, the privacy concerns are not so great for me, and I have
to be honest as an
nearly senior citizen, all this 'social' networking stuff leaves me cold. Someone just invited me to
join Twitter, but I declined as I can't see the point of having to read mindless blatherings of completely unimportant people. Frankly I don't care
if some minor and irrelevant film star thinks he/she needs to go to the gym/has gone to the gym/is eating ice cream etc etc. Nor do I care for the
scaremongering factor - as shown eminently by the last Hekla eruption scare instigated by someone on Twitter. Twitter-Birds OK?
What matters is here on ATS. ATS should be concentrating of getting the message out to like minded people and not opening the doors, in my humble
opinion, to the sort of people who make comments on You Tube that would definitely not be permitted here, but then I am just a Grumpy Old Man!!
On the other hand however IF the connection is controlled and it does get the messages out to a wide audience then that cannot be bad. I can sit on
fences all day!
