Which social networks do you use? [Poll]

Which social networks do you use?

You can find me @reneritchie most of the time. That's because the social network I use most is Twitter. I use it on my iPhone on the go, on my Mac while I'm working, and on my iPad while I'm reading or browsing. I use it to follow a few people I know and a lot of people in my industry. I seldom look at RSS anymore. To find out what's going on, I use Twitter. To keep in touch with real-life family and friends, and a few other people in the industry who prefer it, I use Facebook on the iPhone or the web. I use Instagram as well — also @reneritchie — from my iPhone, and sometimes share to Twitter and Facebook from there. And... that's about it. Only not really. Let me explain...

I do use Facebook but I don't put a lot of personal information there. I don't store a lot of photos, I don't check in, and don't do anything much at all but share the occasional story, and like and comment on the occasional post or link. That's more than I do on LinkedIn though. Mostly because I can't find anything else to do on LinkedIn. Likewise Pinterest.

Google+ I use because Google's bundled Hangouts there and that's our office video conferencing tool and what we use for our podcasts. Otherwise, I share the occasional story there too, and the occasional +1 or comment, and I keep up with my Google- and Android-invested friends. Like LinkedIn, however, I'm hard pressed to find anything else much to do there. And... that's about it. Seriously this time. Kinda.

What's on Joe's iPad right now!

I like to use my iOS devices as extensions of each other. The Home screen of my retina iPad mini in many ways mirrors the one on my iPhone because these are the apps that I want to have access to no matter which screen I'm using. I use one of Apple's iOS 7 wallpapers, and I keep only a few of Apple's stock apps on my screen, but they are the ones I use constantly.

What's on Joe's iPhone right now!

Since all of the cool kids are doing it, I thought that I'd show you what's on my iPhone. My iPhone is the single most important piece of technology in my line-up. It goes with my everywhere, and is my primary method of communication. I keep the most important apps on my first Home screen. I don't use most of the stock apps enough for them to merit a place on my first screen. Those few that remain, however, I use every day without fail. Messages, Camera, Maps, and Safari all remain on my Home screen.

Charming new iPhone 5c 'Every Color has a Story' ads show up... on Tumblr?

The iPhone 5c enjoyed one of my favorite Apple commercials of 2013 — Designed Together — but we haven't seen more of those pop-art inspired ads, at least not until now, and not until... Tumblr? The log is called isee5c and claims Every Color has a Story. The videos are called Porte des Lilas, Vivo a Carnival, Enjoy the Show, Showtime, and Skating Love. There's also an additional spot that simply says Coming Soon. They all feature a series of dots playfully falling into place and then zooming out to reveal an iPhone 5c in its dotted Apple Case. The animation is charming and reminiscent of the Designed by Apple - Intention spot from WWDC 2013. But did Apple make them?
