Do You Need Another Social Network?
Are you kidding? Really not.
My Myspace “died” years ago – but I am glad I can still access my old blog in emergencies.
Facebook is good – and very practical for arranging all sorts of things in real life. It is just tricky when people aren’t on it – and you have to…. I dunno…. like, phone them? Which I “can’t” do. So I have to drive over to their house and put, like, physical bits of paper through their door… Or see them in real life…
However – I envy, in some respects those who have not succumbed to facebook – and I will defend their right to hold onto the phone and email, obsolete as they are, just about.
Luckily I have a real life, where I do see people – and lots of them.
Twitter is very much “the way forward” – as it unifies everything. I love it. Your own personal news stream, tweets that link you to links you find interesting. The democratisation of the world. A levelling of all things and all people.
It is a totally profound revolution. I don’t know why microblogging isn’t bigger news than it is.
As for WordPress – it’s a positive place to be. And I can link it with fb and twitter. Bonus
