Sue Osborne's insight:

I am increasingly of the opinion that, whilst it is great to keep up with people I know and love on Facebook, I am losing something too. My very best friend is NOT on Facebook and I have to make the effort to touch base with her via email, SMS and actual phone calls. It IS much more personal that way.  I tend not to look at Facebook as often through the day as I used to (used to always be open in the background). Some days I don't even look at it at all. However, Twitter IS open all the time - keeping me up to date with conferences, media announcements and the latest articles and developments in my profession. I LOVE it. I can actually see a day coming where I leave Faccebook behind and concentrate communicating on a more personal level with friends and use Twitter even more as an information professional.

Oh this is so good! I left a comment:


"Dear Facebook, We Need to Talk"  

Was the title of a blog post I wrote back in 2011 when I was having a bumpy relationship with FB and finally decided to dump him....err I mean it! (you can Google it or maybe the link will work below - let's try!)

But Twitter....ahh Twitter has become my number one Social Media outlet & source for rich professional development....but my friends? They have to email, call, or text me cause yeah...I don't DO Facebook. And I'm better off for it!  

Great post Griffyn! Love that you rock the Y like I do! ;-)

Cheers!
