    It's unusual- it could be used in a light-hearted way, but generally, I'd avoid it.

    Emphatic use; e.g., "According to who? According to me, that's who."

    according to <a source other than you>;i.e., ?According to my book, . . . . Repair: I believe, etc.

    Yes- I hadn't thought of the emphatic use.
