Let's talk for a second about what the intention of Facebook as a social network is: A place to keep up with friends A place to share what's good and…
You think I am being sarcastic, but I am dead serious. The collaborative working environment is terrible in Facebook. And you'd think for a company making that much money, they'd get their developer and marketing manager tools squared away. You'd be wrong.
The future ahead will continue to be dominated by Facebook and Twitter. Both of which make enormous mistakes every business cycle as they strive for profits over people. But there is hope.
I'd love to hear from you about your NETWORK and how you ARE or ARE NOT getting your "social" needs met on Facebook or any other network.
65 days left of my quitting Facebook for 99 days quest. Here are the top 10 things I miss in random order.
As an email and contact platform Facebook is just "one more" device that I needed to check. Now, I've deleted the Facebook app from my phone, and that right there is about 50% of my distracted phone time, that I now have to do something else with.
Facebook should be so much better. We can do a bit. We can ask and complain and keep using Facebook until something better comes along. And just like Windows, nothing lasts forever. Facebook's dominance will begin eroding, we just need the place to jump.
"Would you pay for your use of Facebook? Would you pay a subscription fee?" Um, it's starting to happen. And it's really expensive.
In this digital world, I am a broadcaster. I am asking you to listen to my stories. I am publishing them in as many digital forms as I can. But when ZUCK and CO. begin to sell me without compensating me, well, then I get a bit more defensive. It's going to happen. We don't know exactly how, or what, or why, because we/they haven't invented it yet. But HOME is the first step along the slippery slope of asking Facebook to become your Wingman for Life.
For now I will stay hopeful and ignorant of the motivation behind FB's move and be glad FF will continue to exist. Cause it wouldn't have been very good had it gone under either. So it's a mixed blessing. Perhaps I need to start looking at those personal aggregation plugins for WordPress. Or roll my own.
