Social Spaghetti

  • My tweets are cross-posted to Facebook because I know they’ll fit. It doesn’t work the other way around.
  • My blog posts can be any size, and are posted to Twitter as URLs, so the links end up on Facebook as well.
  • I guess my Facebook entries could be cross-posted to Twitter as URLs but they aren’t usually worth a click! And it could create a feedback loop which would cause my social world to implode.
  • Some of my friends reply on Twitter, some on Facebook, and some on the blog.
  • I get email notifications about blog and Facebook responses. Twitter replies I often miss. I’d like emails from Twitter but am worried that it would be a bit…well… curmudgeonly, like those people who supposedly could only read emails after their secretary had printed them out.
  • Most of my important communications are in Skype IM anyway, which doesn’t link to anything!

I wonder what this will look like in three years’ time…

“Iā€™d like emails from Twitter” – maybe one of the RSS-to-Email services out there would work well enough for this? Twitter has a main feed, though there doesn’t seem to be a specific “Replies” feed.

I use http://notify.me to send emails or IMs of twitter/facebook/other updates available by RSS and the emails are delivered in a more timely fashion than the IMs it seems, but both work pretty well (well enough that I don’t have to visit either Twitter or Facebook very often, which is the key)

some times it can all get a bit confusing šŸ™‚

Got Something To Say:

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:
     [This is not a link](http://example.com)

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
