This past year, I've started spending more time on Tumblr as opposed to my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I have profiles on other social media sites, but those are more interest-specific so I'd rather not discuss them here.
Personally, I prefer Tumblr because of its simplicity. A user does not have to broadcast his or her location, age, education or occupation to make connection. While Twitter is set up in a similar way, there is a more visual element to Tumblr that is lacking due to Twitter's 140-character limit. I also appreciate that I can choose whether or not to interact on a more personal level with certain Tumblr users; the concept of being someone's "friend" online adds a personal aspect to virtual relationships that may or may not translate into real life. And that can be needlessly messy and altogether stressful.
I have been wondering if anyone feels that their personality type has influenced not only the way they interact on social media sites but which social media sites they prefer to participate in. Do some of you like the, in my opinion, intrusive business of Facebook? Do some of you hate the birthday reminders and the status updates? Do any of you have a preferred site?
