That’s mainly why I use, it as well as promoting music activities; it is certainly one of the best ways of doing that in my area. Like all things, use it sensibly and it will be fine. I do not share my life on it (I may post something every few months), I do not partake in political discourse on it. I do not go searching for cat videos (our cat is funny enough, anyway). But it allows me to keep up with Nieces and Nephews scattered around the world, or old friends I made when I did a large job in the desert the size of England that is Woomera in South Australia. Horses for courses, each to his own etc.
Myspace? Yikes! I probably still have a few sites on that.
