Recently I started a Facebook page for this blog. Mostly I did it because I was giving in to peer pressure, but I've actually found a use for it: posting links and stuff that I don't want to waste a whole blog post on.
In any case, if you follow my Facebook page, it's mostly going to be stuff from the web that I find interesting, not just a repeat of the content that's on here.
I'm not joining Twitter though. No no no. Never happen.
Twitter is actually a better platform for posting links and mini posts that don't warrant a full blog post. And also people don't have to join to see what you have posted unlike facebook ...ReplyDelete
Maybe I'm wrong, but I think public facebook pages are visible even if you haven't joined?Delete
You're probably right about twitter, but I just can't bring myself to join one more thing....
A lot of people I follow on the twitter are physicians who do exactly this - post funny links, share medical anecdotes, etc. And of these tweets are sent to other physicians in the same field, who themselves also share little quips and links. So, as a reader, its convenient to "eavesdrop" on this public conversation. It also gives a sense as to how, say gynecologits attendings, think and talk to each other. Not meant to further peer pressure you or anything. Just letting you know that, like the above poster mentioned, its convenient for the purposes you described w/o all the added baggage that comes w/ FB. Also, you can text to tweet, which is cool. :)ReplyDelete
I like your Facebook links. They're entertaining. I don't twitter, so I'd prefer you keep it to fb ;)ReplyDelete
