katetribe: @SilkCharm Facebook has always been more friends than business for me & using it less & less
aDB: @SilkCharm I’m using Facebook more now that Tweetdeck brings the status msgs to me
JaredWoods: @SilkCharm Personally check it about three times a week. Corporate presence is there, but not heavily used. Too much jibba-jabba.
deltakatie: @SilkCharm I still regularly use facebook. It’s how I keep in touch and up to date with friends, family etc.
A bunch of people (maybe 5?) sent me replies but have locked accounts. I don’t publish those with a “lock” on them. After all, unlocked accounts are google-able etc. Locked ones shouldn’t be copied and pasted elsewhere. No-one sent me a DM (Direct message, like private email) which is good.
The internet as a focus group. Of course I know most of these people. By that I mean, I know a bit about each of them, I’ve seen their tweets before, I know where they work, we meet at conferences and workshops.
Easiest blog post I’ve never written. 😛 I wonder if anyone will read it?
