Sunday Social (12)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social

  • What is the first website you log into each day?
    If I'm at home it's Twitter as I have it pinned as an app tab in Firefox. If I'm in-transit it is usually still Twitter. If I don't use the internet until I get to work (highly unusual!) then it is Toodledo (pinned as an app tab) which is my rolling to-do list.
  • Give us some funny websites that you visit that we need to know about.
    There is a disproportionate amount of cats involved in these! I do like Lolcats (yes, cats doing cat things with funny captions), the Infinite Cat Project (cats watching cats, and other feline fun stuff), Cracked (caution recommended, occasional adult content) and The Onion. There are a lot of other sites that make me laugh, but they aren't included as they don't set out to!
  • Pinterest or Facebook? Why?
    Facebook. It is more useful for keeping up with people. Also Pinterest did a Google+ and were too exclusive for too long and so now a lot of people have found other things to do. Facebook has a lot more 'personal' to it - and it has been around for over 5 years which means I've got a lot of stuff tied up in it.
  • Twitter or Instagram? Why?
    For photos only, Instagram. It is a better interface and gives a better product. Also you can send photos to more places than just Twitter at the same time. It also helps you can hash-tag the photos in the comments which saves on 140 character real-estate!
  • Favorite YouTube video. Post it!
    I don't watch a lot of YouTube. Again it is mostly cats (or informational).

    I'm going to cheat here... because this is an original YouTube video and it is also one of my best friends.

  • Biggest online pet peeve?
    People posting mean things, nonsense and just plain drivel on Twitter. People spamming me by using my Twitter handle. Mostly things relating to Twitter, I do spend a lot of time with Twitter.
