First off, I get twitter. I like twitter. It’s like reading text messages from a number of my friends and also people who are just funny and/or entertain. Twitter is simple, straightforward, and quick. It’s got my seal of approval.
I never did myspace or any of those things- just never saw the point. Ah but I keep getting questioned as to why I am not on facebook, when will I be there, do I not realize all I’m missing out on?
Reluctantly so, I joined facebook a few weeks back. I used an alias so I could just pop on, check out the (work related) content I promised I would on a group/fan page, and then sneak back out.
Today I realized that there indeed IS a bit more privacy/control as to who can see what about you and that made me make the executive decision to change my profile to add a photo + use my real and full name too. Ok, so the realization that perhaps I’m being a fuddy duddy old lady about this partially helped sway my decision.
So! If you’re a facebook girl (or guy, I suppose) then please do let’s be friends. Oh, and if you can explain to me WHY and WHAT the appeal is, I’d greatly appreciate it. Right now I still don’t get it, but I’m testing the waters anyway.
… and I’ll be back with reports as to how this cranky old lady is doing and what I think of it all…
