I use twitter the most. It's a great way to keep up with friends, but also get new and other information that is relevant to your interests.

Facebook is the only one I use, although I have an account at Twitter and LinkedIn. I used it mostly just to stay in touch with family & friends. I just would rather more spend time face to face or talking to someone on the phone that doing it on the computer.

I use Facebook the most and I should probably cut down! I use it to keep in touch with friends and family.

I use Facebook the most, for "play" only. I usually have it opened up in a tab on my computer at all times--eeek!--and just check it every once in a while. My browser feels naked without it (and Gmail) opened in a tab!

I use Facebook most of all, but I try not to use any social networking site since I don't find them that beneficial (except maybe for occasional planning and coupons)

I mainly use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family. I use words as much as pics, so Instagram feels limiting. Twitter is too much of a time commitment with all the constant following.

Facebook. I am so addicted to Words with Friends it's not funny.

I definitely use Facebook the most, connecting with friends and family and meeting new friends around the world. It has been the BEST way to keep in touch with friends from now and the past as we're scattered over the globe.

Facebook is the only social network I really use. As corny as it sounds, it really is good for keeping in touch with friends all across the country!

Facebook is what I check every morning with my coffee and again in the evening as I am relaxing before bed.

Twitter is my favorite social network. I just get addicted to new information on it. And I love looking at what's trending on following people with interesting perspectives.

The social networking site I use most is Facebook. I use it to stay in contact with old friends and family. I actually found my dad's half sister using Facebook.

I probably use Facebook the most. It's the site most of my friends and co-workers use. I am also a huge fan of Twitter and Pinterest. I never got into Instagram.

I use Facebook exclusively. It keeps me up-to-date on friends and family who live too far away to see on a regular basis. It's also helped me to re-connect with old friends and ex-coworkers.

My fiancé and I are currently planning a budget-friendly wedding, and use Pinterest the most often! We've been able to find so many cute, crafty, and cheep ideas for our big day :)

Personally, I think social networking is ludicrous. If I want to talk to someone, I call. If I want to see someone, I go to their house or meet them at a convenient restaurant. Why do people think they need to be connected 24/7???

I use Facebook almost exclusively. I think I am on there too much but I actually use it a fraction of the time most do.

Lately, it's been Instagram. I find it a lot more interesting and easy to stay up-to-date. I used to love Facebook, but lately, it feels a bit overwhelming to maintain.

I use Twitter the most, both for work and play. I actually love it :)

I use Facebook most. I logon about once a day. I mostly use it to keep in touch with family and several friends from my days in the Air Force. If I had my druthers, I'd use Google+ or Twitter, but most everyone I know is only on Facebook.

Facebook and Twitter pretty evenly, mostly for work but also to keep up with relatives/friends.
And those weekly WB tweetchats are a guilty pleasure. "Guilty" because I should be working, "pleasure" because I like to hear everyone's replies.

Facebook is my app of choice. I don't have time for more than one, so I used to look at Twitter, but I gave it up.

linkedin is just useless and overrated...so i'd say i surely use facebook the most. hands down i do. i'm not proud of it because i think facebook is soon going the way of myspace however for now, it's the best.

I use LinkedIn only. I regularly receive consulting offers and am contacted by headhunters through that site. It's also a great way to keep up with colleagues in the same or related businesses.

As much as I dislike it, I use Facebook mostly for work and entertainment. I really like Instagram for entertainment as well as Pinterest. I use Pinterest for work too, and twitter I use mostly for work. With all of them it's still a love/hate relationship!

I use Facebook primarily. I also have Twitter, but it gets overwhelming sometimes...

I really only use Facebook, so I guess it's that one by default. I have 29 friends on there, probably about 20 of which are family members. I mainly use it to keep up with what family is doing.

I use LinkedIn the most by far. My employer blocks Facebook and Twitter and I have other things to do at home than use social networks, so LinkedIn wins my vote hands down.
