Which social networks do you use most frequently in Windows Phone?

We're fairly sociable as human beings. Mobile phones paved new ways to communicate without wires, far extending the reaches of walkie-talkies and the like. Pulling up the aerial on the brick and making a call was a luxury, but in 2014 almost everyone has a mobile device, be it a smartphone or feature phone. Social networks have also evolved from the personal computer to include mobile devices.

Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile each had apps and light-level integration with social networks, enabling consumers to connect and remain in touch with friends and family, even when not at home. This was a perfect way to add yet more functionality to the phone without having to bloat down the operating system. Times have changed, though. People want even more functionality and features.

When Microsoft released Windows Phone back in 2010, it was the only platform at the time (and still is to a certain degree) to sport true integration with social networks. I say true integration by ways of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn all available at the core level without the requirement for respective apps to be fired up each and every time you wish to connect. This made Windows Phone powerful in the social realm.

Social Networks

But with these social networks came the battle to become the more frequently used option. This entirely (or rather yet, mostly) boils down to which one you prefer on a personal level, as well as what you immediately require in terms of functionality. Each social network of today provides separate features and reach. An interesting tidbit: do you know what term is given to someone who hops between social networks? "Butterflying".

Other networks have been added over time and while they're not directly integrated into the OS, we'll include them in this discussion for arguments sake. 

  • Twitter: micro-blogging platform, perfect for ranting, connecting, news and light discussions. 
  • Facebook: the home of friends and family with the ability to remain in contact with lost friends and play Candy Crush.
  • LinkedIn: the business hub of the Internet with employees and companies listed for viewing.
  • Instagram: for photo fanatics and those who just can't resist taking 'selfies' and publishing to the world.

Social Networks

With Windows Phone 8.1 just around the corner (unless you're rocking the Preview) and social networks adding more features through each official app release, it's an interesting time to be connected to friends and acquaintances through a series of tubes. The People Hub in Windows Phone provides a sweet way to remain updated with the more popular networks, namely Facebook and Twitter.

You can not only receive notifications through the Me Tile for when someone contacts you on either service (or connects via photo tagging, etc) but also see everything in an aggregated view. This is a perfect solution to "butterflying" between multiple networks to stalk your prey... I mean friends. You then have other services such as Reddit, Google and YouTube. The sky's the limit – quite literally. But how can these networks improve with Windows Phone?

Which social network(s) do you use most on your Windows Phone? Sound off your thoughts in the comments, as well as how you'd like to see such services evolve in the near future.

  • Facebook... Occasionally Twitter.... That is all...
  • The same
  • With either unattended betas, basic web wrappers, or feature lacking official apps that never seem to catch up to ios/android versions... Facebook and (a distant second) Twitter are about the only viable options.
    Unless you like the 3rd party renditions or actually make use of the site on our phones.
  • Same here
  • I haven't used facebook as much in the past year. For me it is instagram, twitter and tumblr and vine.
  • Oops, sorry forgot Rudy.... 6tag ;)
  • Someone always has to make it about ' not enough aps '... boring.
  • Same with me
  • Likewise. But I prefer using the Facebook app rather than the crippled People Hub.
  • People hub had so much potential... But it did need alot of work.
  • I miss people hub
  • Same for me; never saw the point of twitter or instagram. Occasional discussions on various fora of interest too...
  • People hub on windows phone 8.1 isn't much different than before. I use it more now actually because it has more features and what it doesn't have launches the app automatically.
  • Me too Facebook, and for twitter i dont even have the app !!!
  • Exact, same usage. Plus WPCentral social NW in comments section :)
  • 1 Instagram. 2 Facebook. 3 Twitter.
  • Same.
  • Instagram
  • qq
  • I feel like I should reply to you in pinyin, lol! Who uses QQ anymore? Surely everyone's on WeChat (Weixin).
  • WhatsApp(not sure if applicable here)
  • WhatsApp is not a social network so much as just a modern Way to text.
  • WhatsApp is a way of life.
  • Depends on the size of your group chats... ;-)
  • you could say the same for any social network: they are all a modern way to text (communicate).
  • Dude, in India
    WhatsApp is a way of life
  • Facebook :) but I DONT play candy crush!
  • Is that like being a Brony?
  • +620 for those who don't play candy crush! I don't! And I never will.
  • What does +620 means,sorry I'm new here,is it that your phone is 620?and where does it sits in you're comment?
  • It's like saying I agree with your comment to the 620th degree,or 620 % so to speak.. It can correlate to the device you own.. I usually say +1520 ,or +920 that's the phones I have.. However I've said +2520 even though I don't have one,I have a Surface.. But the higher number shows stronger agreement.
  • So if I have a 520 my argument is invalid:D lol ,so it works both ways ,the phone you're having and the level of your agreement.thanks my man :)
  • Lol.. Yes,you can look at it that way too. +520 I got my brother one for Christmas. I almost got myself one too,just because. lol
  • +520
  • +1520 :)
  • +ICON. wait. That doesn't work out well for me so well. it'll have to be +929 for me, even though that's not the phones real name.
  • It's a commandeering of Google's +1 mode of "liking" something on their Google+ network and making it much better by using your phone's model number.
  • Unfortunately fb :)
  • None I'm a forever alone
  • I can be your friend
  • Lah ya zam !
  • Facebook and Twitter... Thats actually about it... none of the other services have given me a compelling reason to join.
  • None. I'm now an adult. One of the not so many who when they leave highschool... Actually "leave" HS. Lol. Losers
  • Nice B8 M8.
  • I'm just heavily opinionated. But I actually don't like replies so kind of a reverse troll I suppose. Thats really how I feel anyways... Social networking is nothing but drama. I know it's good for family. But texting is simple enough. Personal. If you want to be stalked be my guest
  • Guess you just didnt figure out how to use it properly than. Maybe when you mature more in your adulthood
  • Now your trolling. Others have drama. I'm a Virgo.... Dislike drama very much and go to extremes to stay away.
  • Absolutely feel the same way. I figure the people who really give a shit about me (and vice versa) already have my phone number and can text or call if they feel like there's something really important they need to let me know.
  • Remember the days when family used to get together and pass around photos (yes ones you had to wait a week to get developed) of a holiday somebody went on? Or scrolling through a phonebook hoping your friend is listed because you left his house shitfaced and can't remember how to get back?
    There are so many positive uses for Facebook that some people take for granted.
    The only negatives are immature people, in or just left school people, or people with no friends or family who fail to use it as this useful tool..
    If friends annoy you on fb, they probably annoy you in real life too, so... Unfriend them! if you bump into them somewhere afterwards and they confront you about it, tell them they're posts are fucking annoying! Problem solved ;)
  • I feel the same way I barely want to check email much less wade thru random pointless posts. I barely use xbl's social services
  • Fb
  • Twitter and Instagram.
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. But now the Me tile is basically dead in 8.1. Sad to see it go. If only people saw beauty in the design of windows phone 7/8. Its funny that in the race to be relevant, we can't have nice things.
  • That's true! Yikes, I didn't realize that.. anyway, I think it could be saved by giving it special and new capabilities :)
  • At the moment Facebook and Twitter but the Facebook Integration is so badly castrated especially with the chat functionality that it just turns me off on WP right now
  • All... :P LinkedIn a little less than the others.
  • Facebook, Twitter and Tapatalk
  • For sure Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These three social networking sites help me to keep update with the news as it is faster than waiting news on the TV. Besides I love to share my edited photos on Instagram. But that doesn't mean that I am not well aware with surrounding. I prefer to be social on reality and virtual.
  • Which G+ client do you use?
  • Twitter
  • WhatsApp. Though not mentioned
  • Because it's a messaging app, not a social network ;)
  • Justfarmers.com
  • If reddit counts, then that, by a long mile.
  • Don't forget 4chan
  • Nope. Never go there
  • Lol
  • /g/ tard reporting in
  • /b/ fag reporting in
  • Rules 1 and 2 idiot.
  • Facebook
    why we can't chat on facebook in WP8.1 as we do in WP8 from default massage app
  • Cuz facebook want us to chat via its "Messenger app"
  • Facebook and instagram.
  • Instagram > Twitter > Facebook Whatsapp > FB messenger > Skype
  • Twitter, the only social network with an usable app on wp
  • If you ignore instagram, facebook and vine and alter the meaning of usable then yeah. It's the only one
  • VK
  • +920
  • Facebook, twitter, instagram...I would really like to see Me tile in 8.1 showing updates again
  • This. The article is flawed in that sense as it makes the reader think ME tile is ultra cool. It isn't. Digital networking sucks on WP8.1, while everyone finds Xbox Music limiting, WP a phone once designed around you is now a glorified app launcher with blocks.
  • Yes, the Me Tile is dead in WP 8.1. And SN client apps are unusable now. Twitter forgot the app in WP. And still can't open links from SN directly in his clients. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Facebook to keep in touch with friends, specially those who are far.
    Twitter for fast access to news.
    Instagram for the photos. I don't much care for deep social integration on the phone though. I've removed the Me tile from the start screen with 8.1 because of the removal of update posting to several social networks. To open an app to do it I rather have the app tile (or use Multishare).
    I like the quick access to social sharing in apps and the browser though.
  • Twitter only.
  • Path, with integration to Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and tmblr
  • Facebook
  • Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram
  • Twitter and instagram.
  • Instagram about every day followed by Facebook and then Twitter and Flickr tied up at third.
  • None! I like my privacy ;-)
  • +9000
  • Facebook and Twitter but only if I'm away from my iPad because the WP versions are terrible
  • Facebook messaging and Vkontakte (VK) messaging only. To find out what people are posting I wait till I'm in front of a bigger screen.
  • Chatting with those Eastern European girls mate?
  • Twitter, WhatsApp and Skype.
  • Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp. Used to use Facebook more but since the death oh hubs it also killed my usage.
  • +1520
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Twitter, FB, VK
  • Facebook, twitter, instagram & Nearby(WNM Live). Nearby >>)Nokia Lumia group) is the best place to get support about ur WP from the users experience themselves ;)
  • Twitter Twitter Twitter
  • Instagram foreva. What's the point of a 1520 if people don't see the pics?
  • WP central
  • I'm god u'll find me everywhere...:D;)ha ha ha
  • Or nowhere because you're just a fairy tale :D
  • Twitter everyday!
  • Facebook, Twitter and Instagram here. LinkedIn if what I'm sharing is work relevant.
  • Instagram, 6snap, wpcentral, facebook, whatsapp..........
  • Mostly Twitter n Instagram, sometimes FB
  • Instagram
  • After losing the full integration of facebook... I rarely post or surf it. The app is a pain to me. Twitter is what I use a lot not.
  • Instagram!
  • FB & Instagram (via 6tag)
  • Vkontakte (even though it's not built it).
  • The new VK app and its people hub integration is an example to all others. It is absolutely lightyears ahead of facebook and any other social app. It's also the only thing I use nowadays. Facebook is boring and uninteresting, mostly due to my lack of interest in pretty much anyone and twitter... Well, that's pretty much 99% bots and RSS feeds. Weave so much better for that and I have yet to see the first interesting post by anyone there.
  • Haha.... Nope. Nothing at all.
  • Instagram (official)
    Vine (official)
    Facebook (official)
    Twitter (official) Anything else is irrelevant (to me)
  • Just Facebook, hence the Me tile was always a bit redundant for me.
  • Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare but definitely the apps I use the most are Tapatalk and Nextgen Reader
  • I'm anti social
  • Facebook, twitter and instagram
  • FB, Instagram and Whatsapp.
  • WPCentral :D
  • Nothing.
  • Heavy user of foirsquare, and twitter
  • facebook and google+... more google+ than facebook...
  • Instagram and twitter
  • Your momma!
  • Ooooooh
  • While I appreciated the previous core WP7/8 Facebook / Twitter / LinkedIn core integration the experience with their respective apps was terrible - the integration only compensated for how bad the apps were. Remember the Facebook app back in Windows Phone 7.5? TERRIBLE! Nice idea, very poorly implemented and set it back, still chasing iOS & Android just because Microsoft wanted to make the Facebook app themselves.
  • None, i have no social life
  • Facebook has always been weird for me. I prefer twitter and instagram (and rarely use 6tag anymore, just the official app...please don't kill me)
  • Untappd and facebook
  • Twitter, sometimes Instagram & Tumblr
  • None. I have better things to do than browse other peoples drama.
  • Try posting your own drama then?
  • Delete the attention seeking drama queens... They will learn!
  • I used to be a frequent twitter user since the beginning of Twitter because of getting quick and shirt message, news, updates and stuff. But now I rarely use Twitter to the extent that I dont open it for weeks or month now. I still use Facebook though mostly the messaging app to have contacts with friends and family in other places. But my use of Facebook also lessens as the time goes. I used Instagram regularly because of interesting photos and the I like showing off the power of my Lumia camera. So far, I am more frequent with Instagram than any other social media apps.
  • Twitter FTW and LinkedIn, rarely FB
  • Twitter! Fb not so much.
  • I use friendster and msn messenger. lol
  • facebook-once in every 10 minues. LinkedIn- once in 2 days , twitter-once in 5 days , instagram -once in 10 days, .... :)
  • During the World Cup, definitely Twitter. I use GroupMe alot too.
  • I use groupme loads altho that's a social app, not a social network
  • Facebook and occasionally Instagram.
  • Twitter,F.b,IG in that order!
  • Facebook... WhatsApp...6tag...
  • i must admit, it's facebook for me. Some IG and twitter as well.
  • Facebook, twitter and whatsapp. I deleted instagram bc it made me depressive. I want to delete fb as well, but it's my only means of communication with friends who live abroad.
  • Since 8.1 Twitter no longer comes up when I want to share. Tried everything and still can't get it to come up although I can share to twitter through Unishare. And include me that 8.1 sucks compared to the old way FB and Twitter were integrated and I truly miss the Me tile as its useless now.
  • Facebook....
  • Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, instagram, Tumblr in that order. I'm a social slut.
  • Its "tumblr" :-P
  • Facebook....like most of the world does.....but it was mentioned in post that one could see all notifications from me tile-that being true for WP 8 only now it can't be said anymore ...sadly
  • Now we can see any useful notifications by swiping down from the top ;) no wading through bs... As apps give more options for what to notify you of, I think this should serve the same purpose as the me tile feeds...
  • I use LinkedIn alot, I wish they would update the app. It was awesome when it came out, now its clunky
  • Is there any good Quora app???
  • Obviously Facebook and twitter as well.
  • Skype. Ik fml.
  • You do NOT get notifications anymore in the Me Tile.  In fact, because of WP8.1, the Me Tile is virtually useless.  I use to post to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn simultaneously via the Me Tile.  Now I have to use a third-party app to do it.  It's just sickening how badly Microsoft has screwed up the OS.
  • Its not screwed up. It just doesn't work the way you want it to work lol
  • Give time to add more notification options in apps and our me tile feeds will basically be part of the notifications pull down I think...
    But I think MS still needs to add tick boxes in the "share to" page to select multiple SN's
  • Facebook and Instagram
    Also, Tapatalk for some online Community.
  • Facebook is boring to me of late. Instagram memes are hilarious. And I like the daily themes like mcm, tbt, wcw, etc. I check twitter for news on artists and ign/wpcentral. I used snap chat then stopped. Idk if that's considered a social network. Probably not .
  • With its stories and shared stories features I'd say Snapchat has become a social network. I use it more than anything now. I've stopped uploading pictures to Facebook and deleted my Instagram completely. Same deal with Twitter, my use of it dropped off with my increase of Snapchat use, so I deleted it too. My professional life is in a weird place at the moment, so I find that I don't need LinkedIn, so I deleted that too haha. I still use Facebook for chat with people who don't have Snapchat, but more and more people are migrating every week so it's only a matter of time for my FB account. Thank Rudy for 6snap!
  • Facebook,twitter,LinkedIn
  • Facebook (beta) and Instagram (6Tag).
  • One thing im surprised Microsoft hasnt done this add xbl friends list to people hub & xbl messaging to the messaging/email app & put shortcuts to these new locations in the games hub
  • Twitter
  • Facebook here. I have a Twitter account, but I barely ever use it anymore. I only do LinkedIn on my computers and haven't used Instagram in ages but have it installed only on my 920 (which I haven't used since March).
  • I use a little bit of LinkedIn but unfortunately it is less and less business and more and more spam.
  • I use Facebook, sometimes OneLove to share to Twitter and LinkedIn which I occasionally use.
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram(6tag) and Vine(6sec). Would love to see Instagram and and Vine in Peoples Hub. I hope Microsoft keep the "onefeed" in WP. 80% of my use is related to the social network part...
  • Wow, I guess nobody wrote Ekşisözlük.
    Guess I'm the only Turkish guy here :P
  • Mostly fb
  • Twitter
  • Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, occasionally.
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram Beta (and sometimes 6tag) and Whatsapp. Hardly every use Viber and WeChat though I have the two installed
  • It would be instagram but the apps suck too much.
  • Have you used 6tag?
    Awesome Instagram app...
  • 6tag... Search for it now!!
  • Occasionally Facebook but mostly 6snap and 6tag (no official instagram app, yuck). The Tumblr app is nice to have but is so far behind the iOS app that I hardly use it.
  • I use Twitter and Facebook. I almost never post anything. I just follow people due to the security risk's out there now.
  • I rarely post to social networks. My number one social tool is the people hub with just Twitter (Facebook unchecked). I use the Facebook app to consume Facebook.
  • I would prefer to use google+ or path. I think they're both better thought out and presented than facebook, and more useful too. But everyone I know is on facebook almost exclusively. Sadly, the social networks you use are often dictated by where your friends are. Though I do have a blog on tumblr, but partially precisely because no one i know is on there.
  • Twitter >  instagram > facebook
  • I use Instagram (via 6Tag) exclueively for pictures, because I can have 6tag port those photos over to Twitter and Facebook automatically.   Aside from that, I am 70% facebook mand 30% Twitter fort status updates, etc
  • Twitter, Instagram, Facebook... In that order. :)
  • FB, Twitter, Instagram (6Tag) and I would use google+ if there was a decent app. There's not....
  • Instagram
  • Live on Instagram and WhatsApp, plus some twitter.
  • Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and instagram.
  • What if I don't use any social network at all?
  • Then you probably have a lot more "real" friends than the rest of us, that's a good thing.
  • Twitter! I deactivated my Facebook account years ago!
  • Facebook and Twitter accounts
  • I REALLY like WPs People Hub simplicity, but I would really like G+ integration.
  • I use Instagram (even though the picture quality sucks) and Twitter...
  • Reddit
  • What is G+ out of interest?
  • None. Have a twitter account but don't use it. Have no other social network accounts. Enjoy my privacy, enjoy the moments of my life without having to share. Don't feel bad about not knowing what a friend from way back in high school is having for lunch. Because I don't care. Hell I barely watch the news. What make you think I give a shit about what everyone else thinks they need an audience for? I prefer the RL version of friends.
  • Although I use social media a bit, I don't disagree with your wise choice not to use it ;)
  • Twitter = Instagram > Facebook (Messenger) > Tumblr.
  • I always use Facebook and 4th & Mayor (3rd party Foursquare app)   Occassionally Twitter   Thats it
  • i surely loved the fb integration on wp 8 chat me tile synchronized in the os phone book down to the photo shareing and tagging
  • Facebook e Twitter
  • Facebook.
  • Facebook
  • Wpcentral, skype,whatsapp, hike, OneDrive.
    No idea when did I used facebook last time. I guess its more than 2yrs.
  • WhatsApp, Facebook, WPCentral, One Drive And Twitter...!!!
  • Facebook
  • Yeah I'm also not using FB much anymore, people seem to be dropping off it in the circle I know.
  • Yeah I open it once in a day or usually I don't open it!
  • Facebook and instagram,but instagram need's to show some love for WP.No updates in three months:/ and they don't even have the app posted on their website.
  • Still in beta I guess, for what feels like an eternity
  • No excuse for it to be in beta anymore.Instagram just doesn't want to deal with WP.Pretty sad when my Nexus 10 gets at least a few update's a week and the big goose egg for WP users with any kind of support.
  • 6Tag is much more enjoyable vs what I've experienced officially on the Android platform.
    I personally recommend you give it a go.
  • Use 3rd party apps like- 6tag etc.
  • Everyone talk's about 6tag.No thanks.We need official apps.
  • Facebook for school and twitter to tweet devs :D
  • Twitter, Instagram, Facebook in that order.
  • Vkontakte and Twitter. I use twitter just to follow some sites' and keep updated with new articles added. Kinda RSS feed in "People hub. And Vkontakte just cuz i'm from russia and facebook isn't that usefull here.
  • sina weibo
  • Whatsbook
  • Facebook and Twitter
  • Twitter by far. Facebook sporadically.
  • Only twitter (Using Mahdoh)...
  • Just Facebook
  • I've could really not get interested in the social network thing. I did however with LinkedIn on Windows Phone and it helped me get my current job! Recently I experimented with the awesome app Youmigo. I have had great conversations with people in Russia and elsewhere. I do not use social networking aside from that, except to populate my People hub with contacts. Nothing against it, it's great for folks, especially connecting families, but I don't chat or post photos or 'like' sites.
  • Mostly I'm using Twitter, on the other networks I'm not that active, Twitter is the best way to write short stuff. I'm using Google+ in the second place, but since Google is a bitch it's really unusable on the phone and the web thing is shitty. This me tile thing was something I didn't need, I have always used the apps since they're kinda better, the me tile is a nice idea but it doesn't can't replace the apps in a way that you'd stop using the apps, or using it for posting stuff. ^^
  • Facebook twitter and instagram...
  • Facebook
  • FB
  • Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and VK too
  • Facebook... And only facebook ... :p
  • All...but Facebook..the most xD
  • I really like the app "Nearby" (formerly Who's Near Me).  Its kinda cool and fun at the same time.  You get to see people from all over the world.
  • VKontakte!
  • Facebook ,Twiter
  • WhatsApp , Facebook messenger
  • Facebook and vine
  • Facebook and a little bit of Twitter. Not a fan of the Google+ crap.
  • VK and Twitter.
  • Facebook and Twitter. But an awful lot less now that I'm on 8.1 and it's not as easy. I'd say my usage has dropped at least 80% on phone since 8.1.
  • Me tile just not as useful to me now in 8.1... Although I like 8.1 overall, this aspect is a bit disappointing to me
  • Facebook and watsapp
  • Plus Twitter 8.1 app... What's taking so long?
  • Facebook app, Soundcloud via audio cloud. Most importantly whatsapp.
    Pretty much the same when using android. Except I use official apps.
  • Facebook and whatsapp daily, LinkedIn and instagram every now and then.
  • FB beta... That's why you should make it better, faster and smoother... Sometimes times twitter...
  • Instagram and of course facebook and occasional twitter:)
  • Facebook for most friends and family. Twitter for a few friends and family as well as other people and sites for news. Instagram to share lumia pictures.
  • Instagram as it makes for a decent photography micro portfolio and the occasional selfie (I'm guilty).
    I love the Ted Stevens reference btw, enjoyed a good laugh. XD
  • Twitter and Reddit.
  • Facebook and Twitter Always!!!
  • Facebook and twitter. I really wish we bad I better twitter app and yes I've tried mehdoh, tweet it and a bunch of others that make me run back to the official app, which I hate.
  • Instagram, facebook, twitter
  • True integration is no longer supported in Windows Phone 8.1 I loved the way Facebook worked in People hub before, I have no idea why this was removed.
  • In order of use: -FB -Twitter -Instagram (6tag) -IDK if tinder counts, if so then 6tin
  • Don't use anything except facebook messenger (even than it's only to talk with my family members that live faraway and don't have WhatsApp, I use it maybe once a month?). Skype for work & family members. WhatsApp primary messaging app. I don't have online friends, I don't need to know what the guy that used to read in my class is doing.
    I am not a High-Schooler that likes post selfies on Instagram -_-
    Don't want to post everything I do, I value my privacy. I don't understand why people post literally everything on fb/twitter? It's ridiculous.
    IMHO most of the people on social network these are attention whore or mentally retarded.
  • VKontakte, Instagram, Ask.fm
  • I understand all the crap they said about why the changed the me tile. But that can allll stay the same with the functionality of posting on multiple platforms also. Its not that hard to have individual apps so that u can update them separately but also have that bare bones function. Cuz that was my most used social feature ever. Multishare and unishare sometimes just dont work and dont send to one of the platforms in trying to post on. So id really like for that functionality to come back to the me tile.
  • Twitter - official app, YouTube - myTube... Also I'm using DeviantArt but I haven't found decent app for WP
  • All
  • Twitter, Instagram and Vine! I use Vine just to watch videos though! Never uploaded something.
    Those three apps need some updates actually. Twitter design needs a refresh and performance tweaks because it takes forever to retrieve pictures and avatars. Multiple pics and GIF support is needed, too.
  • Twitter and Instagram.
  • Does whatsapp count? If yes, that is. I am not a facebook guy but sometimes twitter. 
  • None, I like to keep my private life that way, private, using a social network makes me feel spied by Google
  • 1) A LOT of Twitter 2) I like Instagram but it's pretty casual 3) Facebook is necessary but I'm not a lot into it (a lot of spam content) Tumblr is really fun cause it's about content, and incredibly varied. YouTube is for watching videos, but in any case now Google has ruined the social experience.
  • Instagram (I mean 6tag) all the way. I'm a photographer, I have a Lumia 1020, so I post pictures all the time. Also, Facebook and twitter.
  • None.  I still prefer to speak to people using my vocal chords.  It doesn't get any more personal and sociable than that.  That said, I only use twitter as a news feed.  Never sent a tweet yet and don't intend to.
  • Weibo!
  • Twitter. Remember to follow me @rugamba01 ;)
  • Whatsapp,facebook,twitter and instagram
  • twitter for me, have facebook account but i only use facebook messenger,not really the app.   for twitter i use the twabbit app
  • WhatsApp......
  • Mostly Instagram, then Twitter and Facebook. But I use FB less and less. Mostly just stay connected to FB for address book purposes and some events.
  • Twitter and Instagram is basically it. Facebook for messaging
  • Vkontakte,6tag and Facebook Messenger
  • Twitter and instagram daily. Not so much facebook anymore.
  • Twitter
  • Twitter
  • Facebook and Instagram
  • I use Facebook, then Twitter in Windows Phone 8.0.   In the brief few weeks I had Windows Phone 8.1, I stopped using all social media on the phone because it kept having to open an app to do ANYTHING.  I have a literal, VISCERAL HATRED of Windows Phone 8.1 and its lack of social integration.  I will not upgrade my Windows Phone until this is corrected.
  • Twitter for me.
  • Twitter
  • #instagram thanks to Rudy Huyn #6tag ocassionally #twitter and #facebook via social share on #WP8  
  • I mainly use Twitter and Instagram (on 6tag). Do use Facebook. Would use it a lot more, but I have problems with the app, so I don't use it that much (feed is very different from my computer/tablet). Use Foursquare (on 4th & mayor), but ever since they released Swarm, I stopped using it quite a bit since the point system is horrible now. Still waiting for Swarm on on WP. I do have Tumblr installed but I haven't used it in a loooong time! Have it just in case, lol! Would have Google+, but never found an app I really liked! :/ I do have Snapchat (6snap), Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, Telegram, etc, but I don't think that counts. I don't really use the People Hub, I feel it's very messy, so I don't really care about more integration. If I want to post something, I just open the app I want to post to. That's about it, i guess! (:
  • Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr. 
  • Except the people hub in 8.1 has been gutted completely. I can understand to some degree the installation of the app but I shouldn't have to open the app just to like something from the hub. One of the main reasons I reverted back to 8.0
  • I use only Twitter, but I keep it under a pseudonym and only use it to get news and follow musicians I like. So I don't really use it as a social network, that shit doesn't appeal to me anymore. I shuttered my fb over a year ago and don't miss it a bit. Which is why it pisses me off so bad that that goddamn logo is on my people tile.
  • This will come across as snark, but it's not meant to be. I've eventually found the poor app support to have one positive for my switch to WP, which is that I spend far less time on social networks. There were some withdrawal pains, but I can honestly say I'm a happier person now.  I do admit that I spend a lot of time persuing, not sharing, on Instagram, however. 
  • Facebook, then Twitter, then Instagram
  • FB
  • 6tag, facebook, twitter. I love ❤ twitter.
  • 1 - Twitter 2 - Reddit 3 - Instagram
  • Facebook, but rarely.
  • FB only. If Messenger counts.
  • Twitter then Facebook...
  • 6tag, Facebook, 6snap and Twitter in that order.
  • Lately, my entire circle has ditched social media. My best friends closed out Facebook. Dont have twitter. I got one friend who Instagrams. Point being, WP has such a great feature integrating social networking, but what happens when one no longer utilizes social networking? Its a huge Pro that becomes pointless. These days, the only thing to love about my 920 is the U.I. And the camera. Everything else is whatever.
  • Ugh, if I were in that boat, I'd probably just get an iPhone. The social network integration is honestly the main reason I have a Windows phone.
  • In order of usage, I'd say: Snapchat (6snap) Foursquare (4th & Mayor) Instagram (Instagram Beta) Facebook (Facebook Beta)
  • Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Whatsapp & Steamchat... If that counts
  • I use Facebook and Twitter daily. LinkedIn is used weekly. Instagram is used on a bi-weekly basis. Integration drives how much I use a service. I use live tiles for various groups of people I wish to keep updated on (e.g. tech folks, male stars, female stars, family, friends in town, friends out of town) - it's nice because that includes Twitter and Facebook, like a one stop shop. That's why Android and iOS wouldn't satiate me.
  • Facebook.  Rarely Twitter.  I see Facebook as a scapbook of photos, thoughts and events of my life to share with friends and family.  Eventhing else feels like "Cluttr". :)
  • Facebook and then twitter and then instagram :)
  • Facebook in past, but due to some reason swiping gesture I'd not working on photos so now I use twitter
  • I'd like to use Facebook, Twitter and the other social network. But in my country, Iran, using any social network is forbidden. So that all we can do is messaging, unless using anti-filters.
  • facebook  
  • Facebook primarily, some LinkedIn but the app experience isn't great and the website keeps detecting you are on a mobile deuce and telling you to install the app, some Twitter
  • Microsoft account
  • I usually use Twitter, Instagram and Foursquare. I only use facebook to check what's new hehe.
  • the internet is a beautiful thing.
