Face it

11 01 2011

As you know, I like my Social Media, but this might strike you as odd.
Although I prefer my blog site, I use Facebook as my main blog, well sort of anyway.

You see, I like to drop links into it, sometimes at a rapidfire pace, as with todays posts and updates on the flooding in Queensland, I was getting new information at the rate of about three items per minute, from various news sources and journos who I follow on Twitter.

WordPress requires that I write something, and possibly add a photo, while all I need for Facebook, which usually, but not always, finds a chunk of text from the story and a photo to go with it… leaving me to credit the source, and then continue looking for more news.

This is what I want on WordPress, I’m sure people would find it a very useful feature if it was available, is it?

Hello Mr Wolfie,
I wonder if the point of a blog is to insert more of yourself than just a link to another. It seems to me that you have what it takes to run your own dialogue on any current issue without having to repost info. Do it your way. Wolfie, you should consider yourself as a new media journalist. Do not ask WordPress to be like Facebook or Twitter. They are a different animal.

I do agree, and I can post long thoughtful stories on my blog, and that’s the reason I keep it, as I can’t really do that on facebook.

OK, there is a discussions tab on facebook, but I have a feeling that people tend to overlook it.

If I had the option of posting quickly, like I can on facebook, then I think that would not only be handy, but possibly narrow the gap between blogs and facebook.

It’s just the option which I think would be sweet, I wouldn’t want my blog turning into another Facebook.
