My Facebook secret is out…

Sebastien Provencher, senior manager strategy and business development at Yellow Pages Group, Canada’s leading directory publisher, figured out what I was doing on Facebook in a post that says “Robert Scoble is Media.”

If he had stopped there he would have only figured out half of the story. But he ends up writing “I am media as well.”

Bing! Bing! Bing!

See, what’s cool about Facebook is that for the first time I can see all of you and anything you publish on your Facebook profile also comes to ME.

In five words he nailed Facebook and why this thing has such huge value.

Facebook makes my blog seem very one-way. I can’t see anytime one of you writes something, or puts some media up, even when you do it on your own blogs. Facebook makes our media a lot more two-way.

  1. I find importing your blog to notes on facebook very useful. Your friends and network are always updated whenever there is a new post.

  3. @Chris #26 – I said “probably longer, I don’t know.” The point is, THIS STUFF ISN’T NEW!! This stuff has been around long enough for me to get two graduate degrees. Why are we talking about facebook? Sure, the google reader integration with facebook, that’s new, but only because google reader. That’s a cool post. But there’s like 10 posts on facebook in the past couple weeks (I haven’t fact-checked that, just saying what it feels like). I guess there’s not much else to talk about right now.

  5. I was reading Asimov’s Foundation Edge – in which there is a planet called Gaia – a superorganism which comprises humans, trees, plants et al. So anytime someone asks a Gaian organism, ‘Who is Gaia?’ – they go ‘I am Gaia’. The also use pronouns in the following manner – ‘I/We/Gaia would like to go to the toilet’. The ‘Robert Scoble is media’ bit sounds too much like those Gaia fellas. I can already imagine reading Scoble next post which goes ‘I/me/media approve of the iPhone…’. Or Sebastien’s, or mine for that matter.

  7. “Silicon Valley is the world’s most powerful economic engine.”

    Excuse me while I clean the coffee I’ve just splurted over my keyboard.

    Your statement might be true in your microcosmic view of the world, but in the real one? Got facts to prove this? Last time I looked there weren’t many oil fields in San Jose.
