Self ID

I'm playing around at the moment with different social media websites and working out what I want to use and not use. It’s the kind of thing that you need to think about every 12 months because things change so often.
I’m going back to trying to use Twitter. I’m not sure I see the point yet but I’ll give it some time, and linking it with other accounts means my updates should take care of themselves. It makes a bit more sense on my phone that on a computer, but there’s a lot of linking and I dislike watching video or reading at length on my phone.
Also useful now that I have a smart phone is Instagram. Right now it’s mostly fun but it’s an interesting way to make connections.
Facebook I sadly can’t get rid of. Why can’t everyone just use e-mail?
I’ve jumped back onto LinkedIn. It makes sense as a way to connect, particularly when compared with design community pages that are only linking designers to designers.
An example of that would be Behance. I used Behance for a long time and ProSite was how I created one iteration of my website. It is make more reputable through it’s connections with Adobe, but it isn’t providing much I don’t get from other sources.
The Loop is something I’m looking at for job searching, but it doesn’t seem too helpful for much else.
Goodreads is for my own benefit. It keeps me conscience that I should be reading every day. Currently I’m reading Magazines and For Dummies guides though.
One that went away was Fitocracy. Perhaps useful if you’re a runner or a body builder but it wasn’t for me. Nike has a skateboarding app that I’m interested in but I have an Android phone and it’s only for Apple at the moment.
While sorting out my profiles I decided I need a more “universal” photo of myself to use so I’ve just done that and I’ll do the same thing with some of my information.
