I am active on facebook and Twitter. Facebook I have a lot of relatives as friends. I try to avoid controversy and mostly keep up with everyone. I post about mental health issues in general, but not mine. Twitter I only have a couple of friends I know Irl. I talk about anything. 

I like being able to keep current and hear other opinions. But, a lot of the time something will bother me. There are people who just want to debate and say things they wouldn't Irl. Today a man was saying that someone who disagreed with him had a personality disorder. I read through his TL and he has used the term "mass personality disorder" for groups of people he doesn't agree with. 

I think it is worthwhile enough to continue, but man some people suck

Confused -

Take half an hour in a quiet, still room, preferably one painted blue or green, perhaps with soft background music or chimes, and be seated in a lotus position.  Breathe deeply and slowly, and then repeat this mantra to feel better:

We're surrounded by idiots... we're surrounded by idiots... we're surrounded by idiots...

I get into it on FB too sometimes. I usually just post something like "... I don't want to get into it either. I just hate perpetuating misconception against an already stigmatised population." I don't usually have people argue that point with me. If they do then that are not decent human beings.

No social networking for me. Don't trust myself on it. Don't trust other people on it. Best not to go there at all.

Posting on a specialised forum under a silly name with a cat icon = ok. That's as social as I'll get online. 

Oh I do have an online portfolio for my art too, but it's professional. I have a CV up and pictures, that's it.

I don't really "get" Twitter, although I am on it. My husband likes Twitter better than Facebook. I like Facebook, because my friends from college and high school, or who know me in person, have seen The Crazy, and aren't alarmed by it (other than messaging me to see if I'm okay). But I am "out," and will post if I am feeling crazy, anyway.

I am beginning to collect more friends that I don't know IRL (although some of them I have "known" online for 15 years). Usually it is a "friend of a friend" who asks to friend me, or someone I meet in a group. I've never asked someone I didn't know to friend me.

I'm on Facebook everyday, sometimes for a long time.

^^Same here.  No FB, twitter, pinterest, and all the other things out there.  I can't put myself out there.  I try to put almost all of my high school and college experiences/people behind me.  I just don't want to deal with the questions. 

There is one person who is trying, now for years, to get in touch with me, like her father is friends with my parents, and her father will tell my parents that "D" said 'hi.'  I went on my mom's FB account and she found this person for me, and just seeing her gave me memories that I do not want to bring up again.  Maybe one day, but not now.  I don't want her to spread me and everything to the group of friends we were in, in high school (who are also on FB), if she would.  Then I'd be screwed and my privacy would be gone. 

Anyway, that is far as I'll go with social networking ... when my mom is on FB, I'll look on.
