social consumption diet: understanding social networks and media consumption

Marianne Richmond alerts us that, of the people responding to Jeremiah’s question about media consumption diets, few of us say we use social networks on a regular basis.

“I found it interesting that of the Media Consumption posts that I have seen thus far, only Chris Saad (MySpace) and Brian Keith (Facebook) even mention those social networks as a source of communication…the only social network receiving much attention thus far has been Twitter.”

Jeremiah asked, how do you consume media?

Here is the new question: how do you keep in touch with friends and family?

Could be online social networks like facebook and myspace, or mail, or phone, or email. Or Twitter.

I am asking the same people who answered Jeremiah’s question: Jeremiah, Martin McKeay, Chris Saad, Marianne, Ian, and Zac.

    Technology & Narcissim: perhaps this will help stimulate some conversation on social networks and media consumption.

    1) In Person
    2) Phone
    3) Email … a lot … with different schedules, time zones, etc in many cases the easiest way to keep in touch
    4) IM
    5) Yahoo Groups
    6) Snail Mail…. on rare occassions as it seems I never get the stamps on and the item in the mail

    Husband does use MySpace but mostly for his music circle of friends, bands, etc.

    And since I didn’t respond to the media question….. guess I should go back to that one, huh?

    I keep in touch with friends and family by phone and visits. Very infrequently snail mail but when I send it or get it, always feel more connected than when I send or get email.
