Firstly I am still trying to figure out why the word “Status” is used on Facebook to post. The word status doesn’t fit most posts however, that’s not the issue.
I received a call from a friend informing me that I was posting too much about the Middle East and it’s various war’s. I was doing too much for my friends comfort. So what? I don’t complain about my friends regular posting of family pictures of grandchildren, wives, and family. It’s very nice and some people enjoy those posts.
Some people enjoy my news related posts. Just as much, as a matter of fact. Then we have the the jokes, cartoons, recipes, favourite restaurants and whatever. If you Like a post, hit Like. If you want to comment, make a comment. That’s Facebook and unlike Twitter there are no limits. If you just don’t want to see someone post then unfriend them. SIMPLE.
On Twitter the issues are different. Very few twits actually tweet. Many twits retweet and act like a baby more in a tweet.
I tweet globally, locally and nationally. My favourite subjects are dependent on where I’m tweeting but I’m an opinionated in all events. I’ll start with a retweet or reply and try to get debates going on my subject matter that I enjoy.
It seems that I get more action on the global side. The local politics in my city of Little #Winnipeg is harder to get twits tweeting. Winnipeg has always been a little backwards. Tweets are mostly complaints about infrastructure, etc…
Twitter will not allow you to follow more than 2000 twits unless your followers exceed that number by 5%. That is a random number and not really correct if you are looking internationally for a following. As such the follow trains are useless.
Anyways, Facebook and Twitter, I am what I am and I love the action. Keep it up and don’t whine!
