BJS051: The Social Timesuck
57:37 - So since I missed recording a segment for The Overnightscape Central's episode about Facebook, I decided to dedicate an entire episode of The Brian Jude Show to the topic! Here the story of how I first joined Facebook, courtesy of Kathryl Velvel Jones, Facebook's lack of customizability, throwing sheep, the rise of Facebook and the downfall of MySpace, high school reunion, some people don't want to talk with old high school classmantes, Alumni Group page, closer with some people now than ever before, letting bygones be bygones, getting gigs, keeping up with family, younger cousins, requests from strangers, Temple of the Jedi Order, status updates, Twitter, "Brian Jude is...," Wall vs. Profile/Info vs. Home, News Feed, using SMS to keep up, FB + Twitter = Now have to keep texts silent & always check, I ignore notifications, Gmail Priority Inbox & Facebook notifications separated, News from friends, Dawn Richie, Vanessa & Reiki, birthdays sharing photos, Jacob's albums, The Many Faces of Brian Jude, people don't like being tagged, DCT Comedy's Brooke Van Poppelen, videos, 3rd Party Apps, MP3, YouTube - Great auto function - instant embed - any web site image, no more Links page(?), notes, tagging, Events, Groups vs. Pages, "Like," Discussions, Insights, promoting DCT, DRP, the Miracle Man, the great time suck, Chat - I'm always "offline", games, Mafia, Farmville, ads are non-intrusive, quick to load, New Facebook, removed info box from sidebar, love new info page & its functionality, birthdays, friends photos, friend groups - everyone has at least 1 category - helps with mass messaging, "The Social Network," helpful for me - cast off doubts! Make someone happy with your favorite social network.
