Monday Poll: Social Media App You Spend the Most Time In?

Social media platforms have essentially taken over the world in the last few years. Almost everyone you know has probably been on Facebook at some point, but the reach of services like Twitter and Google+ seems to be growing by the second as well. They are a way for you to reconnect with long lost friends, get closer to your current group, share your life, find news (or deals or happenings), and more. While some still try their hardest to avoid them, we want to know which of them you use the most. Is it still Facebook? Are you a master of all things Twitter? Or have you shunned the old standards for something new?

Social Media App You Spend the Most Time In?

    Google+ is the best so far

  • Raven

    I rarely post anything myself, but I guess I do read family and close friends status updates on Facebook occasionally. I use Friendcaster on my tablet which has a nice set of filters that are easy to apply and dramatically cut down the signal to noise ratio.  I can’t remember the last time I actually logged into a “Social Media” web site though.

    I have accounts on all of the above because I like to “claim my name”, but I rarely use any of them.  I just don’t get Twitter and Instagram is a joke.  I would like Google+, but only a few of my techier friends are on there and they rarely post anything either.

  • Picaim Inc.


    Picaim is a project that aims to become a social network to see and share things that are happening in your city and in the world.
    The service is based on sharing geo-located photos of things that are happening in your city.

    The great idea is that photos can not be sent by the computer, just for mobile devices, and only at the moment they were captured. This measure helps prevent false information inserted in the social network.

    This means, you see what is happening, what the person who took the photo has to say, and where that is happening at the moment what is happening.
    You can see content classified by what is happening in your city.

    Also you can post anonymously, if you wish to protect their identity to share with the world.

    Anyone can see what is happening in your city on our web site, without registration or application for mobile.

    The project was launched this week, still has very few users, and we are asking for help to all who possess an android phone, just download the application, test and share with friends in your city.

    To check out the project, visit:

    The application for Android already available in the market!

    Help us to share with the twitter hashtag: #PicaimForAndroid

    OBS.: If you can not take the picture because of the gps location, try again in an open environment.

    I wasn’t sure how to vote because I use TweetDeck for both Facebook and Twitter feeds, so I chose other. For the things that just don’t work right for Facebook within TweetDeck, I open the Facebook app or use my computer.

  • So do you guys have a myspace?

  • I choose other…… write in – Droid life

  • Facebook: Best way to keep up with old high school classmates, college friends, and family you don’t want to give your number too!

    • tervorsalienarms

      “Keep up with…”. It’s that critical piece of social media that I just don’t care about/understand. Given the millions that feel otherwise, it has to be proof positive that there’s something wrong with me. I’ve come to terms with it, but it is certainly strange to witness in some cases, the near fanatical devotion to social media activities.

      • By “Keep up with…” I mean actually communicate with. My personal rule for FB is “If I don’t actually know you or talk to you, I don’t see the point of having you on FB.” I find FB’s messenger to pretty useful for IM’ing since you can’t convince everyone to use some other IM service. It’s pretty convenient. 

  • RobMorris

    Deleted my FB for good, Google plus keeps me informed of the stuff I actually want to know and isn’t full of tards posting everytime it rains

  • G+, all the way.  I check Twitter every once in a while and closed my FB account a loooong time ago.

  • I reluctantly voted Facebook.  I wish it weren’t true.

  • JulianZHuang



  • Bob Martin

    if going outside was considered a “social media app” then it would win

    • Who goes outside anymore, no one 

      • You’re spot on!

  • DanWazz

    sadly I use facebook the most, since that is what my friends use. I use G+ and twitter, but mostly as  pseudo new feeds.

  • Palmer Nyako


  • I try using Google+ more, but I’m on Facebook and Twitter more because there’s more going on there. I do tend to update my G+ with things that are actually meaningful and fill Facebook with hatred for hybrids.

  • andthrax

    Does using Facebook in the browser count?

  • trumpet444

    I use twitter instead of an RSS reader, as in I follow news sites for headlines (including android sites). I tweet here and there and I can’t stand Facebook. I love my friends on there but I don’t really care to know what they’ve had for breakfast

  • tumblr >>>>>>>

  • yarrellray

    I love facebook no question but I have transported 50 friends to Google Plus and I use Gplus just as much as facebook..

    • You have 50 friends?…….. Lucky!

    • TC Infantino

      I’m much more impressed that you have transporter technology!  That is one thing that I can’t wait for them to put on our phones.

    Facebook…with a close second being Google+

  • Smooth918

    Twitter (Celebs & Pron Stars), Facebook (Mostly Family), Google+ (Co-workers and Other Geeks), Instagram Account (Celebs Unscripted) Mobli (Local Mostly), Pinerest (Photo w/links). Path (My Family) … Yeah think that’s it, Oh of course there’s 8Tracks (Music)

  • What do you mean Google+ is not number one, excuse me

    I guess ataching a gif changes it to jpg so click below

    As of yesterday I deleted my Facebook account. Got tired of all the privacy/security claims I hear about Facebook and them supporting these government SOPA (etc. bills), figured I better get rid of the data they have on me before they start selling it. I only use G+ at this point, trust Google a lot more. 

    • Google

      You have privacy concerns so you decided to use Google+ instead. Hahahahahahaha. LOL. Hahahahaha. Hahahahaha

      • Tiyjuan

        I have problems with companies freely giving out my information. The whole concept of G+ is based around sharing information with the people who should know, not everyone you are connected to. I don’t worry about my account getting hacked, advertisements knowing what I post or even spy apps trying to get me to buy stuff on G+. Definitely can’t say the same about Facebook. 

    • Liderc

      You do realize by using google search, G+ or any sites that use Google adsense you’re still giving all your data away to them yes?

      • But at least they do not sell it and own it like facebook does.

  • Tha Drop

    I use Lightbox a lot. Then it’s Google+, facebook/twitter.

  • Sqube

    I use all of those options, but I follow people on Twitter who start convos a lot… so I end up interacting with them a lot more than I deal with any of the other ones.

  • twitter, google + is what I use more often. instagram is closing in…

  • kfath1978

    Wish more people used G+ but I still check it several times a day.  I use twitter the most at this point for news and sports, facbook for family and friends.

  • Verizoncankissmybutt

    social media is for people that have nothing better to do than talk about themselves.

    • i love talking about myself.

  • tweetdeck… combines twitter & fb

  • teleclimber

    G+ has been drawing me in lately. 

    Once I realized it was not a place to talk to friends but a place to learn something new from other people then it got very interesting very quick. I learn something new everyday on there.

    Every day I spend more time on Google+ and less time on Facebook.  Just read the Guy Kawasaki book, “What the Plus! Google+ for the Rest of Us”  It was a pretty good read, I was hoping it would actually dive deeper, but there’s a section that talks about G+ vs Facebook vs Twitter.  1st he suggested that 
    Twitter = perspectives (real time info)…Facebook = people (what others are doing)…Google+ = passions (interacting with people that have your same passions)  He also made some interesting suggestions about Facebook’s algorithm on how and what content is actually displayed on your timeline.  Needless to say, it just furthered my fondness for G+.

  • Firelight

    Seesmic: I mean I DO use Facebook & Twitter but I do it all from Seesmic on my phone. I use FB for web & Plume on the tablet. But my social media is pretty evenly mixed between the two.

  • I’ve been using Google+ more and more.  FB is the trailer park of social networking sites… I keep the tards penned up there.

    • I started switching to using G+ more and more over facebook as of late. Now I use it 90% of the time 

    • trumpet444

      I wouldn’t call it the trailer park, I’d call it the Wal-Mart of social networking….. EVERYONE has been there, whether they like to admit it or not and most people still go there. 

  • duke69111

    This would make a good poll for you to put a % of how much time you spend on each.  I wonder how they would rank then.  

    I use twitter and facebook, but facebook is slightly more.

  • Reddit isn’t a social network.
    Its just a big forum with a horrible signal to noise ratio.

  • Google+. I just wish any one else was on there too.


    Yeah FB to check-in with Fam & Friends, but I would say I spend half as much time in G+ with strangers, news info and following. Share a lot of my cool finds from G+ to FB to share. I think most on FB don’t want to deal with another Social Media, it’s why they have not switched on to included G+ in their repertoire.

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    twitter and reddit here….all my tweets get sent to my fb page so i really dont post on that

  • twitter by a large margin
    scan facebook every once in a while
    google+ for instant uploading of photos to cloud. 

  • Mikel61101


  • im addicted to Reddit and I use Bacon Reader. Does that count?

    • kixofmyg0t

      How DARE you claim Reddit as a “social media” with the likes of fb/twitter/myspace/fox news.

      Reddit News reader here anyway lol.

  • CodyLemley

    Tumblr that’s all I need

  • i kinda bounce back and forth between facebook and google+

  • brando56894

    Kind of a Tie between Facebook and G+.

  • Derek

    Facebook #1? Who knew so many 13 year old girls read Droid-Life?

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, but facebook is not myspace.

      • Derek

        I can’t believe this bubble I’ve been living in is gone. I can see things so much more clearly now. What was I thinking? Consider me put in my place.

      • Bigsike

        It’s not? hmm I guess I was reading wrong for the last 2 years.

    • Bob

      If Facebook is for 13yo girls then Google+ is for 13yo loners who masturbate too much. 

      • trumpet444

        BAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH……didn’t make any sense

      • LiterofCola

        Try harder Bob

        • Noyfb

          Google+ and twitter. You’d have to pay me money to use facebook, like $100 a day.

      • Wasn’t the “masturbate too much” bit kind of inherent in the 13yo male demographic? That doesn’t seem exclusive to loners at that age.

    • LiterofCola

      I lol’d

  • QQpayne

    I can honestly say that i use G+ more than anything else now, sadly it is a lonely world i have resigned myself too.

    • LiterofCola

      Yeah, it’s pretty much a ghost town.  I still log-in every other day though.

    • DrHotmann

      G+ most for me as well, followed by twitter.  I have a few nerdy friends (the only friends that matter) who use G+ and get most of my android news through it as well so it’s useful.

  • Trevor

    Kinda wish it was Google+, but it’s Facebook for me.

  • StreamZoo and Twitter are my addictions.

  • To all the people who state they don’t use media platforms, stop lying!

    • sc0rch3d


  • bigmak40

    I use Facebook, but not the Facebook app. I use the browser version and it works just as well as the app in my opinion.

    • John

      as well? better*

      • WAldenIV

        The FriendCaster app is way better than the official FB app.  It should be a poll option.

  • Butters619

    Google+?  What’s that?  Some sort of super search engine?
