Default So, how many of our members have Facebook, MySpace and Twitter accounts?

I received a PM the other day suggesting the site should provide links so our members can display their Facebook and MySpace pages.

I'm always open to new ideas and I was curious to see if many of our members had accounts with Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc?

Further, I'd be curious to know if any of our members have accounts to promote their Dealership?

I've got a Facebook account and I've never been able to understand the point of Twitter.

I know Lithia has a Facebook page, but I'm doubting they actually use it for anything.

I totally agree on the Twitter comment. The first time I heard about it I had to re-read the article because I thought I had missed the point.

I have since read that over 60% of the people who start Twitter accounts drop out after the first week.

No worries, I don't have any of those accounts either and I like to think of myself as a "computer guy."

Oddly enough, my father has both a My Space and a Facebook account so I guess it's not entirely a generational issue.

I have a facebook account that I catch up with old friends on. I thought twitter was completely useless and don't really care what other people are doing at any given moment. I am not in a punk rock band and have no great pictures of me in a bar with my buddies completely sloshed so MySpace is about as worthless to me.

I have f/b and catch up with old friends too. Never even considered Twitter. Seems like a waste of time

I do both FB and Twitter, more FB than Twitter. We had a FB acct for our OLDCO store, and will do one for our new used car store. I also would consider doing Twitter for our store...both can be a great advertising tool for the store, and they are FREE!

FB junkie here. Keep up with old friends and play games in my off time. Helps to relieve some stress. Also have a MySpace but never really use it. Never even considered Twitter.
