Please read this Mashable article about ‘the revenge worm’ that is spreading, like a STD in the dorms, on Facebook. Don’t click the ‘revenge’ link. Don’t get the virus. Mainly because I don’t want to be exposed to it.
Please spread the word about this post. Thanks.
This is a true story. This actually happened to a friend of a friend.
When using a public computer, make sure you log out of Facebook before you leave. When you are on a Mac, make sure you actually ‘quit’ the application, don’t just close the internet browser. If this hit my Facebook ‘wall’ my grandma would be mortified to say the least.
This article compares the top trends for 2009 on Facebook and Twitter. The fact that Lady Gaga didn’t make the Twitter list and Michael Jackson didn’t make the Facebook list is astonishing to me but the article is far more fascinating than the lists of topics. The article reminds me of the difference between Facebook and Twitter.
I have said before that Facebook is a place for you to connect with people you actually know. For this reason, on Facebook, the exchange is personal. Simply put, Twitter is an information exchange. Twitter has greater search capabilities and less privacy options [than Facebook] so they have the ability to gather more information. I do not care if you know all of the people you ‘follow’ on Twitter and vice versa.
I like it like this.
