SF on Facebook

I only got a Facebook account recently. I was trying to resist.

Initially I didn't see the point, and to be honest, it's not much different then all the other web communities out there. However it does get more interesting when you add more friends and join some groups.

There are a couple of SF groups I've joined (and probably loads more out there), UKSF and the BSFA group. If you have a Facebook account, check them out.


I hate Myspace something chronic... mainly on a web design point of view, but overall just cos idiots seem to love having really bad profiles on there... Facebook though, I like. I suppose it's the anonymity of it. No-one can see your stuff unless you let them and it's generally a much better thought out and laid out site.

I don't really like either of them, but I am using Facebook now, because so many people are on it. I just don't see the point, you can't really *do* anything. If I want to set a witty status I use Twitter.

Maybe I'm too old!

For personal blogging I use Vox, which I really love, blogging in a Flickr style, with permissions, groups, communities. Like LiveJournal, but better.

Oh yeah, and I hate MySpace too, the design is so 1995.
