I didn’t have anything ready for tonight, today was kind of a rush since it was the last day of school before the holiday, but luckily, Michael (Graywolf) had some questions ready for me.
Which websites do you visit and how often (digg, netscape, reddit, stumbleupon, myspace). What are your favorite things to do there ?
Myspace is the only one on that list that I visit., and that’s just to see if my friends have written anything new. When I first got a myspace I checked on my friend’s space a lot, but now I just check once a day or so. It’s easier to keep in touch with messenger or texting.
If I’m bored I play comment tag on myspace or we play holdem or hearts or something on Pogo.
What do you think of corporate profiles on my space like
I just ignore them. A few of my RL friends try to get as many myspace friends as possible so they might send them a request, but mostly they’re ignored.
Which do you use more email or text messaging?
Texting. I send email to my grandparents. My friends all text, email is just too slow and you have to be on a computer. If you’re at a computer then messaging is quicker.
Which would you prefer a phone with better pictures/videos/screen size or a phone with more/better music capabilities?
Better pictures and videos, ipods are better for music.
Would you be willing to carry a larger phone with a bigger screen and larger keyboard or do you prefer a smaller more compact phone?
Probably not. Smaller is better at school and everyone kind of wants the smallest phone they can get.
If you have any more questions just blog them. Next week I’m going to write about what teens buy on the web. Dean helped me set up a blog and I’ll be blogging there too.
