I don't know anything about Twitter. I like pinterest. But I will say, I created an account, username etc. then unsubscribed. I'm sure I just wasn't doing it right, but I couldn't get the whole page with all sorts of things on it to come up after I joined.

If you type in pinterest dot com, that's the page I wanted. As soon as I unsubscribed/closed my acct. I was able to get that page again.

Pathetic I know, haha. I like pinterest without being joined. You can search for anything.

Thanks!
No not pathetic at all katlan in fact I thought I was pathetic for asking here. I browse pinterest too, although not enough to really get the hang of it. I haven't spent a lot of time with it though. I probably best stay out of things I don't understand..look but not join. LOL

I can't quite understand the twitter craze. Celebrities or whomever post what they're thinking or doing or what's going on for all of their followers to see. Maybe I'm just not interested in knowing how much Kim Kardashian spent on a pair of shoes along with a picture of her in the shoes. Maybe I just don't care to know what everyone I know is doing at every minute of the day. Maybe it's just me?? LOL

I have browsed Pinterest but never signed up. When we did our kitchen remodel, I browsed Houzz a lot. What are you looking for? Social entertainment or decorating ideas or???

RE: twitter..what can you tell me about it?

I don't really want to follow the celebrities either..I am more curious about twitter than anything. I thought you could do follow ups on current events there.
Regarding pinterest, I thought it looked like a good place to share ideas, hobbies. I really don't know much about it though.

I got on Twitter when it came out for the news aspect of it but REALLY stuck with it because of airlines customer service help on it. I fly mostly Southwest and you can get AWESOME service by using their twitter to get help in airports etc...I have friends who use it for that too and swear you can get better help and better upgrades on it. there are also lots of deals from companies just on twitter.

Pinterest is a wonderful addiction when I have time. I found that as soon as they opened and for about a yr used it alot. Since summer thou I have not had much time, of course that was after I kept bugging friends to get on LOL. again you can get deals on things, find cool craft ideas, find decorative things to buy etc... It is the equivalent of tearing out magazine pic's and articles, a hobby i used to have LOL ;-)) ~ liz

Hmmm...deals you say? I just might have to give Twitter another look, Liz (not gonna call you Bigfoot LOL!)

RE: twitter..what can you tell me about it?

I had joined twitter the very day it came online, several people I knew did also. Well with in 24 hours I had I kid you not hundreds of emails in my inbox from people wanting to follow me on twitter!! some I knew some I didn't, some I have no idea lol but it scared the bejeepers out of me and I went and closed it. I have seen there is someone else now using the ravencajun name, I am definitely not the only one LOL.

I love Pinterest. You can find a lot of good ideas, recipes, etc. on there. The only problem is that it can be a little addictive.

Twitter, on the other hand, I just haven't been able to get into. I've looked at it & even signed up for an account. I haven't used it though. DH is on Twitter & seems to like it. If you follow many people the amount of info (especially if they tweet often) becomes overwhelming.
