I find it all entertaining, and the main reason kids today are lazy as can be........Nobody has energy, especially my kids, to get out and do something......My kid could play D1 baseball at a big school, if he'd forget about trying to hack into other peoples computers....lol

Facebook and Twitter. Twitter has become mostly noise but I use Facebook  for keeping in touch with actual friends and family who live far away - I love it for that.

Reddit is my goto site for staying in touch with what's going on in the world with pop culture. Being a teacher it's a benefit to keep up to date with pop culture to a certain extent. You don't want to be that old guy who is totally out of touch.

I'm friends with a bunch of ex-students on FB and it is pretty cool seeing pictures of weddings, kids, etc. In the old days you just never knew what ever happened to them, now it's pretty cool seeing my kids all grown up, starting careers, families, etc.

I've never understood the disdain for social media by us older folks. It really is an efficient way to stay connected to people who would otherwise fade away from memory.

Bingo.  This Place is as much drama as I can get away with.  I'd be a raving lunatic on book of faces or instachat if I had to read and reply to some of these fringe political propaganda spewers.  ( both fringes ).   Not to mention how much darker my outlook on humanity would be if I actually read their thoughts.  I'd be stock piling nato rounds not golf balls.  So it's better for my mindset that I don't.  

And calling this place social media is like calling my kids big wheel a motorcycle.  It's really not the same thing.

Don't use any social media, except Golfwrx.  Don't intend to use any.  I wouldn't have a cell phone, had I not found out the hard way, that pay phones don't exist.  (I locked myself out of the house four years ago.)  I keep a Tracphone in the car, for an emergency, BUT, keep it shut off.

Anyone needs to get in touch with me, can call the golf course.

I forgot about Blair, he's awesome, TheBuckClub (his course project in Utah) is good too. Blair and the guy(s) from FriedEgg are doing a little collab which should be pretty cool.

Bringing this back to life - who are the best twitter follows these days? More interested in the PGA TOUR/LPGA/Course stuff...not so much on swing tips or product reviews.

No Laying Up guys do good work, same with The Fried Egg...Then there's your Shane Bacon, Jason Sobel, Kyle Porter, Sean Martin, Kevin Van Valkenberg. Anyone else?
