There are so many of them out there! And it seems every month there’s a new one available and people flock to them.
Anyway, here’s my current policy (version 1.34, most likely it will change each month, too.)
I allow anyone to subscribe to my Myspace profile, the more the merrier. I don’t mind stuff posted on my Myspace comment section. Feel free to post whatever. I might remove ads that are not socially acceptable, of course. I’m trying to post info about upcoming shows and performances — not that it looks somewhat dry just now.
As for Facebook, my rule is that I should have at least talked to you for a while face to face, worked together with a project, or otherwise interacted via email for a longer time. If not, sorry. I don’t want my FaceBook to become another grab-bag service for adding as many friends as possible, unless we have of course interacted for a while.
I use LinkedIn for pure professional purposes, to keep track of colleges, where they are today and so forth.
I have a Twitter account that I update now and then. It seems to have become a sporadic mini-blog. The verdict is still up in the air if Twitter makes sense or not.
As for most of my communication, it’s really through this blog as it’s so easy to write and post entries this way. With RSS it’s easy to keep track of updates, as well.
There are two more things related to social networking and music that I’m working on, when either project is ready I will talk more about those. Both are very much content/music/multimedia-centric.
