Social media is the way of the future as everybody wants to stay connected with everything and everyone around them.
So what are your favorite social media sites that you have and/or use the most?

I have a Facebook, a tumblr for reptile pictures, a flickr for more of the same, but mostly talk to one of my closest friends via G+ and the rest over Teamspeak.

Real self:
Facebook
Livejournal (May delete soon.)
Flickr

Fursona:
Livejournal (Was deleted long ago. I don't think furries use LJ much anymore? )
Might get a Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook accounts. Not sure though.

I generally like to keep my real self and my furry sides separate which is why there'd be multiple accounts.

I also use sofurry, since that's where I've started posting stories.  :)

And I'd like to get ride of my facebook. It's way too easy to waste too much time there.

You missed "Yahoo's Messenger"  It's the only one I use. Other than visiting my GF who lives
in Brazil. I hardly ever use it.  I do have a facebook page under the name of Roger, but never
use it.

All those other social things like Twitter ect. I never used them. I don't see well enough
to use a smart phone. Tiny screens with tiny print on a light background. (ugh) I never go
anywhere to need a portable phone anyway. If I did I would keep it turned off.  I let a
answering machine answer my phone. Most calls are robo calls these days. So its a good
way to screen them out.

I think some people would have a phone implanted in their head if it were possible.

Other than one email group and furtopia, I don't use the internet for chatting. I tried getting
on a few chat rooms, but there was too many people causing trouble for my tastes. I guess
the most I ever chatted online was on MUCKs back in the late 1990's. Of course most of that
was roleplay.

Just a ole rabbit that likes to stay in his burrow. :D

Here's a question I forgot to ask:

As I said for myself, I like to keep my real self and my furry self separate. Therefore, I'll have multiple accounts. Do others do the same thing also? For example, do you have a FB account for your real self and another for your furry side? Or do you prefer to put everything on just one account, but keep your furry side in "hidden/closed/private" posts?

I mix the two, to an extent. I'm very careful about what I put online in general, I'm a fairly private person, but my Facebook has fursona pictures and references. My friends know I'm a furry, and they don't care. So I don't care about the two colliding.

Mostly a tumblr user, myself, but trying to get back into facebook. I'm not openly a furry anywhere but here, though.

I have a dA, Facebook, Twitter and (I think?) Tumblr as well as LiveJournal accounts. The only ones I use frequently are dA and Facebook. I am actually getting tired of Facebook...it's more ads and news feeds than anything else, and a total time waster, but it's also how I keep in touch with friends.

I also have a WordPress blog I update about once a month or so, RL permitting, with my plushie of Iara going all kinds of places.  (:
