The Facebook plunge

Well, I did it.  I took the Facebook plunge.

Now I have a Facebook account, Twitter account, LinkedIn account and a blog.  I might as well quit my job and spend all my time updating my various accounts and feeding my information starved friends, fans, and followers. 

So, why did I do it?  First, my wife was tired of our 'sharing' her Facebook account.  Our interest online are slightly different and our friends, fans, and followers are her friends, fans, and followers for different reasons then they would be my friends, fans, and followers.  Second, there is some content on Facebook that I wanted to keep up with.  Faith Ministries, where I work, is getting more involved in social media and I want to keep up.  Third, what better way to grow my massive online audience then to connect all my online presences.  After all, if I'm going to do this I might as well go all the way.

My favorite method is Twitter.  It is short, sweet, and easy.  Facebook to me is often overwhelming with all the options for posting that it has.  We'll see how it goes.

Yours for social media and online connectivity because I have nothing else to do.
