I was also a twitter skeptic and now have found myself using it to let off steam over
political matters, even getting a few pasted up on qanda!
There is an art to getting across a core concept in 140 characters. I am now trying to tweet
only in Haiku, if I can.
As for the rest, I have a tentative prescence on linkedin, nothing to do with facebook at all
(where is the dislike button?) and a little bit on blogspot and google code....
...only started using twitter after I got this ipad, BTW.....
