When to use a lens hood?

I was having a discussion with another photo friend, and for some reason we started to talk about lens hoods.

Whatever camera or lens I was using, if one was available then I have always kept the hood fiited, primarily in my view to protect the lens.

My friend had a different view, that he only occasionally used a hood in bright sun.

We agreed to differ but it got me wondering what other members here do?

I'm not aware that it had any adverse effect on my pictures but perhaps I have been doing it wrong all along!!
