So, on my plane ride home from San Francisco, I decided to write you up 100 blog post titles that I want YOU to write.
Number 1: How I use FaceBook
I really seem to be an oddity on Facebook. Her indoors has used Facebook to connect with friends she hasn’t seen in over a decade, people she went to school with. I don’t have anyone like that in my list. I guess I must have fled the social scene, as Facebook puts it, and lost touch completely. As a result, my FaceBook friends are pretty much people I already have in my AIM buddy list with maybe half a dozen recent exceptions.
So, do I use FaceBook properly?
A few months ago I saw a diagram telling people that as a networking tool LinkedIn was “out” and Facebook was “in”. I’m not sure about that. LinkedIn is definitely work-focussed. FaceBook seems a lot more leisure to me.
To a degree I’m also using it as a diary in addition to my blog. The Status field has a twitter-esque quality and I miss not knowing how others are feeling in his respect.
I guess I’m not using it wrong. It is what it is and everyone is going to get something out of it. I only added extra applications because her-indoors bugged me about it. 🙂
