Heheh, I love these two posts.
Blindsquirrel.org (wants me to stop writing about Facebook): “I’m still a Scoble fan, but I’m hoping the subject changes once he takes on his most important role – the father of a new baby.”
Shel Israel (who is just discovering Facebook on his new iPhone): “I have never had a more productive business tool than Facebook is turning out to be. Never.”
That brings me to Techquilashots. He repeats something a lot of people have said without really understanding what I’m doing with Facebook: “But the problem Robert (and others with tons of friends — even if it’s 100) is that you don’t really care about the actions of all those people — and in FB apps, you really want to see the actions of certain top friends of yours.”
Totally untrue. I regularly just click around on my
friends social graph. Not just the “big name” ones that I recognize. But especially the ones I don’t recognize. I want to know what connection we have and I want to discover new people before someone else does.
That’s the magic of Facebook and the fun of it.
Many people don’t understand what I’m doing with Facebook or the other social tools.
That’s OK, I hope they stay in the dark. Makes it more fun that way if people think I’m just looking at Kara Swisher’s profile.
