Okay - I've been experimenting with some Social Networking sites - mostly MySpace and I just set up a facebook page for AboutNewJersey.com - which hasn't been promoted yet. I am now looking at Twitter as a way of promoting New Jersey by letting people know what I am doing in terms of tourist activities around the state or meetings I am attending.

I'm really not sure how well twitter will work. For one thing, I think it takes you out of the element of the actual activity you are doing. For instance - when I went to the devils game, I was texting my cousin - and I had a hard time following the game. Of course we weren't really texting about the game. I'm going to see how it works out. I guess as the say - you can follow me on Twitter.

Here are our social networking pages and twitter profile....

I've been trying out the Social Networking scene as well, and it seems like it's helping out. I don't know about Twitter either...I try to use it when I'm at an open mic, but it takes away from the experience. I don't know how well it's helping promoting JerseyMic (http://JerseyMic.com)either.

Anyway, I've got a Myspace, Facebook, and Twitter page too:

I agree with twitter taking away from the experience. I've gone to do something to enjoy the experience or if it's to listen to a person give a lecture - if I;'m twittering, then I'm too busy typing to pay attention. I will give a quick thing about " hey, check this out" type of thing and I may send a couple of photos, but I'm not going to sacrifice my enjoyment of the event to get it on twitter.
