I'm Just Not That Into You

From group e-mails, to Blogger, to Myspace, to Facebook, to Twitter…there’s always a new way to stay in touch with your friends and family efficiently. Of all these medium, I’ve found that Facebook does the job best and here’s why:

** Facebook easily allows folks to connect and reconnect via shared schools, jobs, neighborhoods and organizations; and even the friends of friends who belong to the same

** Facebook allows you to update your friends, while keeping you posted on what others thought regarding the advice you gave your friends; yeah, it really makes you think it’s all about you

** Facebook puts you in the driver’s seat…how much your friends know or don’t know about you, is all up to you. The privacy controls are just enough to make it fun while keeping the stalkers at bay

** Facebook integrates your other passions – whether reeling in your Blogger posts or keeping your photos in order, Facebook doesn’t make you feel that you wasted four years plugging away in Blogger to toss it all away now

Ultimately, Myspace never struck my fancy…just seemed more for the kids. As for Twitter, unless you’re Beyonce, I can’t see why anyone would think that others give a HOT shyt if you got a manicure or peeled a grape – hey, we’re just not that into you! I’m not one of those people that knock it before they try it; I tried the Twitter thing, but even I wasn’t interested in my every move.

As someone who feels there’s too much on his plate, I won’t keep you posted every second of my day and frankly, I don’t want to. I still love Blogging and I like that Facebook doesn’t make me work twice as hard…it just grabs my Blogger post and keeps it in my Facebook Notes. Technology is suppose to make life easier, keep me connected to my loved ones without adding undue pressure and stress about whether I ordered a Blue MuthaFuckah at the club and the bartender was wearing a Gucci rope belt that didn’t match his visible thong.

Sorry folks…I’m just not that into ME and certainly not that into you…see ya’ on Facebook.

On Blast
What’s your favorite medium for staying connected and why?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Definitely FACEBOOK! I didn't care for it at first...I was a myspace junkie for a couple of years but then I started finding and was found by tons of folks I grew up with all the way back from 2nd grade and on thru high school. It's been a great tool for reconnecting with my childhood--and the nostalgia that came with it has been a true sanity saver for me. Now, with you and I connected also thru FB, I don't have to feel guilty when I go so long without checking on my Blogger family--you're the main attraction at the Blogspot and now I don't have to miss a thing!

I was so opposed to joining Facebook, stuck on MySpace. But most of my friends were on FB and once I got on there, I never looked back.

I guess I should delete my MySpace account.

As for Twitter? It has it's usefulness, but I agree. Nobody is interested in my life like that.
