The billionaire businessman and philanthropist said he was inundated with messages when he used the social networking site. "It was just way too much trouble so I gave it up," he told an audience in India. He said he would find "10,000 people wanting to be my friends" when he logged in, and working out if he "knew this person" was too complicated. The Microsoft chairman also confessed he was also "not that big at text messaging". Despite his views, the Bill Gates fan page has nearly 17,000 followers while his charity's page has attracted the support of 34,000 users.
