Twitter Causing Confusion on Facebook for Friends
In the past couple of weeks I have had a few friends ask me what all the junk is on my Facebook wall. By junk they were referring to all the @replies, RT’s, and shortened words and abbreviations that I use on Twitter. I really don’t have time to stay plugged into Twitter, Facebook, and all the other social sites I play on. So, to help me share my thoughts on the many networks I post to, and stay in touch with friends with out having to actually sign into all of them, I use Twitter Apps and feed readers to pull my Twitter updates into my other accounts. This makes it simple for me to update the accounts I really care about by really only having to update Twitter. BTW, you can follow my on Twitter once you have an account at http://twitter.com/atraine.
For those of you who don’t know what twitter is, here is a definition:
Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates (known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Wikipedia.
You can visit Twitter and sign up for an account in only a few seconds and then you can start micro-blogging too…along with updating your Facebook account, or using the Twitter Facebook App to update your Facebook account automatically.
There you have it, my short explanation of what all that so called “junk” is on my Facebook page. Sorry if it’s been confusing to you.
