Facebook or Twitter?Posted Thursday, August 13, 2009, at 7:47 PM
It is a really neat tool, but also if you do not have your settings set to privacy, anyone can access your information.
I have learned some interesting things being on Facebook.
1. I can keep in touch with friends almost in a real-time setting.
2. I can share or not share as much as I want.
3. It's a great place to re-unite with some old friends.
Now I have a friend that went through the hippie era and she said No WAY to Facebook. Too intrusive, too much information.
I can agree with that too. But for the casual venting and fun with friends I like it.
Some things to Do or Don't do:
Use your real name. I found out that there are alot of Lesa Cox's out there. Yep spelled my weird way too. Of course I was crushed thinking I was individual and wanted to change my name right off.
Use a real photo of you. No boob shots needed.
Look at the photos of those who send you requests, find out if they are genuine. Set your photos to privacy settings so only friends can access them.
Be tolerant if you get a request from someone you don't know. You are not the only one on the planet with your name.. See my earlier Gripe session...
Use the Facebook privacy setting to limit who can see what or how much.
Don't leave the Facebook privacy setting just like they are: set them for friends only.
Do not post where and whom you'll be with at such and such time...Cyber stalkers are real.
Don't use Facebook to bully, harass, spread rumors, challenge fights or otherwise incite violence. Facebook is a social utility, not an anti-social utility. Hummmmm this needs to be remembered for the Times-Gazzette readers/posters also. Some people can be so mean!
The same things go for Twitter.com
Twitter is a short posting tool that can give up to the minute information for anyone who wants to follow you.
Amazingly I have 200 people following my cats.... and their daily "thoughts", whodathunk?
So enjoy these tools but be wary of posting too much.
So do you Twitter or Facebook??
