There are so many different social networking accounts that just one person can have, but with all that space to communicate, is anything really being said?
If you’re really tricky, you can consolidate your Facebook and twitter into a twitter feed that only publishes excepts of posts from your Facebook person or Facebook page account. But then twitter is nothing more than an RSS feed, which you probably have anyway. If you set up your tumblr just right, you can also pump your posts to twitter, facebook, probably bebo and myspace too if they allowed you to do anything apart from post animated gifs and bad music samples.
Entrepreneurs keep coming up with different ways for people to communicate and express themselves, but in the jumble of it all, is anyone listening?
I feel silly writing a guide to sending me instant messages, but bear with me, I have reasons. If you’re going to PM me on Head-fi, MacTalk or any other forum I frequent, chatting with me via instant message (MSN, AIM, etc.) is more efficient. You can find my IM details in my forum profile.
As part of my Dynamic Web Development study today, I revamped my contact page on this blog. (I am, of course, kidding. Call it procrastination, call it a distraction, call it anything you want – but it definitely wasn’t study.)
This continued (funny how these things snowball, isn’t it?) onto me introducing a new page – elsewhere. I am elsewhere on the internets, and this “Elsewhere” page is designed to let you know exactly where. It involved a good evening’s worth of hunting down my online profiles, identities, and what-have-you, but I think it was worth it. I’m pretty much contactable in every way possible now.
That being said, not EVERY single online profile. Off the top of my head, the Elesewhere list is missing my never-updated Tumblr, my Steam profile, my forum profiles (Mactalk, OCAU), my Youtube, Vimeo, as well as stuff that I haven’t touched in years (Ubuntu Forums, Gentoo forums).
What prompted this mass online-identity updating and linking was a post by one of the people I follow on Twitter who had a list of all her networks on her Posterous page. I thought it was an excellent idea, so inbetween episodes of Stargate Universe, I managed to get it done.
Maybe I’ll update my Elsewhere page to point to those eventually. And if I join even MORE social networks, I’ll add those to the list, too.
For now – catcha round on the interwebs.
This post part of Blogtober 2009. A post a day – and a page or two thrown in for good measure.
