Social bookmarking

How many people here are using sites like Del.icio.us, Digg or StumbleUpon?

How useful do you find them?

V useful for search engine optimisation - if you can get your site(s) bookmarked by "users" of these sites its a big plus..launched a new site at the beginning of the year and by using/manipulating these plus facebook/yahoo groups/flickr etc I got to p1 of google within 2 weeks for most of my key search terms.

Nope. I have a facebook page but I have to say I regard it as an entirely pointless phenomena mostly populated either by "kewl yoof", people with a morbid curiosity about other people's business, or people who do not have enough to do - in many cases all three apply

Coat on and out the door

To be fair, While I can see what you mean , Facebook was invented by Uni students for uni Students, so I can see the lack of enthusiasm by you 'oldies' - It has groups for the societies/clubs you are in for communication and the whole 'tagging' thing is really just for banter when people get really drunk and do something silly.

I know but there are plenty of people my age (35 so hardly an "oldie"!) and older on it, I just can't be bothered. It also seems to be a jack of all trades master of none - Flickr is better for sharing photos online if that is what you want, proper forums are better for discussing things and email (or perish the thought, a good old telephone) is better for communicating one to one.
