[access-uk] Re: Facebook

In answer to Jackie's post, my original post wasn't so much to say that all 
social networking sites are pointless, only that they serve different purposes 
and that re-purposing the output to one medium doesn't necessary make sense in 
another medium.  Sometimes I wish people would distinguish between the two 
mediums better.

Very broadly Facebook is where you get together with mates or people you may be 
acquainted with to create some kind of enduring link with and want to keep tabs 
on therefore what you post will be different because it is a different audience 
to one on Twitter.  Twitter itself is sometimes best thought of as a sort of 
stream of consciousness thing where you follow someone or un-follow them 
according to your likes and dislikes that day of the week etc.  For example I 
am not on Stephen Fry's Facebook page (I'm sure he has one) because I am not 
one of his mates, on the other hand I do follow his tweets as actually authors 
himself rather than have a minion to do it as some may on Twitter because he is 
quite literate, witty and also a technology geek.  By the same token he does 
not follow me because Twitter isn't necessarily a pure friendship network.

Hi

I've never ever seen the point of these social networking sites either.  
Perhaps I'm missing something.  Apart from anything else, I don't have time for 
gossip like that!

This is why I don't really bother with it.

I mean Why do I need to know that one of my friends has just made a cup of tea 
and is now going to bed?

The stuff folk right is so so crud it's unbelievable to be fair.

I believe there are two different numbers from which you receive the messages 
from, one is for United States and the other an International one (the latter I 
suspect is not free).  Hopefully someone who does this can give you more info.  
Facebook is meant to be different but have edged closer to Twitter which has 
more recently caught the online public imagination.  In truth they were meant 
to be different things, Twitter a micro blogging portal and Facebook a full on 
social networking.  To add further to confusion it is possible to post tweets 
into the status updates of Facebook.  I have seen many people do this, 
personally this can be a bit tedious if all they are frequent posters of the 
type of thing "I'm having sausage eggs and beans" followed by "just paid for 
meal and walking somewhere" type posts.

Hi. I have opted for SMS notifications to be switched on in Facebook.
I'm not getting them for some reason and Facebook did state that the messages 
are free. My other question is about status. Is my status displayed on my 
friends page? I would like to know the difference between twitter and Facebook. 
They sound like different tools for the same job.
