I agree that social networking sites are just a way of being nosy without having to call your friend to find out what's new with them.  For example, I have a friend that I haven't spoken to in years, but thanks to facebook I know exactly what she's been doing.  On facebook, she talks about her kids, work, places she's visited, etc.  It's great and I haven't even been to her house!

I think there's a fine line. Or at least a line that's now been created with the invention of Facebook in particular. Some older school friends that I lost touch with twenty years ago are on Facebook and I find it interesting to know where they are and what they're up to now but I wouldn't want to call them or meet up with them. In this way with these kinds of older acquaintances I think Facebook's great.

Twitter sounds a bit boring if all you can do is update your status. Why do you look at it? Just to read a status update? You get that and so much more at Facebook.

Good point.

I guess it comes down to two kinds of people, do you find the applications etc on facebook a distraction or do you find them entertaining? I guess the people that answer distraction might lean more towards Twitter. It's straight to the point.
