Updated: Alternatives to Facebook

One of the more popular posts on The Low-Tech Times was written on alternatives to Facebook. I thought of a couple updates to the original post:

  1. Spend time with family and friends in person.
  2. Send postcards or write a real letter.
  3. Send email to share pictures and comments with a select group of people.
  4. Blog so that you can take ownership of your own content. Why let others (e.g. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg) profit from your content? You, along with your family and friends, can keep informed using a site like iGoogle to read all the headlines from each others’ blogs and keep in touch through comments.

Any other thoughts/ideas?
