Now, that I've been active on Gather, I find myself only briefly checking my Facebook account. I have 400-500 'friends' over there and find that I'm not missing much. I love seeing my points build up here, but also have learned a lot from others' posts. I'm never bored here! I also like it when I can click a link to help someone or use their referral link to join something. Gather seems more like friends who want to help one another and Facebook is all about 'me me me'.
There's a difference in sharing and in 'look at me!' Maybe because Facebook is all about Facebook. (Who gets the profits from Facebook ads? Not the users).
How do you compare Gather to Facebook?
