1- I use a great deal of Web 2.0 in my life, and in my job in fact. I am a Social Media Specialist for 1800CONTACTS, so I spend 40 hours a week at work on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Reddit. Outside of Work I am more involved in Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
2-As I mentioned above, just for work, I am on social media sites for 30-40 hours a week. On my own personal time, I am a daily user of facebook, and usually a weekly user of Twitter and Google.
3-My job has made me a more careful user of the social media sites. I see first hand how much data companies can learn about you, just from these sites. However, I have found that I am more involved in Facebook, simply because I have a lot of family that are out of town, and its nice to have it to stay in touch with them. It makes it easy to communicate with them. However, I never “tweet”. I use my twitter to follow my favorite sports teams, comedians, and news outlets. Twitter is mainly used for news, etc. While I use my facebook for interactions.
4-It depends on the site. Twitter I use for news. Stories are posted on Twitter much faster than I can find the news relevant to me, in the paper. I like that I can choose the content I receive, instead of having to sift through a bunch of irrelevant content, just to find one story that appeals to me. Facebook is more involved on a personal level, to keep in touch with family and old friends.
5-I would like to see more awareness in Web 2.0. I think people put a ton of information out on the web, without realizing just how many people can access that information. Web 2.0 is a great thing, and it has improved our lives in many ways, but I don’t think people always realize what the trade off really is.
6-I don’t use the “location” features on social media. Personally, I don’t want people knowing where I am at different hours of the day. The people that I want to know where I am, already know. I don’t need businesses and facebook/twitter knowing where I am all the time.
