    I don't know about "useful", I honestly haven't done too much with it, but every little bit helps, I guess. Facebook seems to be the only place where any action actually happens. Tsu stalled out, twitter is mostly useless... I'm kind of hoping that Crimespace can at least become interesting, if not helpful.
