It’s Here to Stay:
It’s all come about in such a short amount of time that it’s a bit mind boggling.
There are so many options today that it’s hard to decide which, if any, is right for you. In spite of all of the new programs that have been created, Twitter and Facebook appear to remain the most popular.
Many years ago the owner of Super Geeks told me that I should be on Twitter. “Why” I asked and he said, “Because there’s a lot of people that would like to hear what you have to say.” So, I set up a Twitter account; @itseasy
Sometime after that I went to see the movie “Social Media” which is about the creation of Facebook. I decided to set up a Facebook page. In doing so I discovered that I already had one which my son had set up for me many years before that I never used. In the “About” section I had written, “Facebook is something for people who don’t have enough to do.” While that may be true, It didn’t sound like something that would serve me well so I updated it.
Over the years I have found myself drifting back and forth between Facebook and Twitter, not really sure which of them was best or if I really need either.
The best description of the difference I have heard is, “Facebook is about WHO you know and Twitter is about WHAT you know.” The biggest mistake one can make is to post political or religious opinions, especially on Facebook. One thing is certain and that is that BOTH are time consuming and can easily become a distraction.
