One form of social media I use now on a pretty regular basis for almost four years is a virtual reality game called second life. Second life is a game, but in some ways it is more than a game.

Some sites I used to use are sites like hotel chat which was a public chat room that was very popular when the internet started to get popular however with the vast growth hotel chat eventually became obsolete and closed. Of course, I have sued face book, MySpace, and twitter. I dont really sue them anymore quite honestly because I became bored with them. Theres no real live interaction everything is just messages, and posts. I am the type of person I like having live conversations so the live interaction based social media applications appeal more to me....
