My posts have been few and far between since Januaryand I am not the only one...Not that I posted that often before…But I have been exploring other social media outlets. By that I don’t mean Second Life or Digg or anything truely geek chic, it’s Facebook that has caught my fancy and I admit I am addicted.
Myspace was the first social networking site to really take off amongst my peers but I didn’t jump on the bandwagon. Along comes Facebook and it is the talk of the town. No fancy backgrounds, top eights, music or frills, Facebook is easy-to-use and it is catching on like wildfire. Eight weeks in and I have more than 100 friends (all people I know) tons of networks and more. It’s so easy to use there are social media neophytes in my office signing up and logging on.
There is a great analysis from a marketing perspective here so I won’t bother trying to add my two cents. One thing I will say is that it took me WAY less time to figure out how to upload video and photos than wordpress.
It’s like six of degrees of Kevin Bacon plus Jewish geography and I am totally addicted.
