Mine is. Something makes me think that these rockers have moms on Facebook too…

I came across this video via @Mashable.

As I read through this article, “At Last — The Full Story of How Facebook Was Founded“, I had mixed reactions. I do think that Mark Zuckerberg could have been more helpful to and more honest with the Harvard Connection team. That said, Mark is smart. He did the right thing for his site and while he saw similarities between the two sites, he knew The Facebook was different (and better). I feel sorry for the Harvard Connection team but the truth of the matter is that their vision was limited and Mark saw the big picture.
.
I do not, in any way, think that this story should impact how Facebook is viewed. I believe that Facebook is a great tool for people to share content and keep in touch with their friends and family. Facebook was initially created as a college site and over the course of six years, it has grown into a global enterprise. The Facebook team continues to make improvements on the site and expand server size. Businesses are now able to connect to consumers and use Facebook as a marketing/customer service tool.

I know that if I were Mark, I would have done the same thing. I also know that if I were the Harvard Connection team, I would feel upset and betrayed. The most important thing is that Facebook is great. The site is being well-managed and I do not want management to change. I wish Mark (and his team) and the Harvard Connection/ConnectU team success. The reality is, they all went to Harvard and the world is their oyster.

Did you know you can choose who sees your Facebook updates? Sounds appealing to me. You can now divide your Facebook friends into lists and choose who can see each of your posts. Find out how you can keep your updates private by reading this Mashable article. You’re welcome.

If your company has a Facebook presence, I am okay with it. However, if your company goes about this presence wrong, I am not okay with it.

If I like your business/product/service and you want me to become a fan of your page, I will become a fan of your page. If I really like your business/product/service and you want me to join a group in support of it, I will consider joining. However, I don’t care how much I like your business/product/service, I probably will not accept your company as a friend.

JCrew is an example of a company that I love and support. Become a fan of the JCrewAholics page here.

If The Real World Was Like Facebook: A user-created photo contest created by Cracked.

Because “Facebook is full of behavior that would get you punched in the real world.”

Social Media is not a fad. This video has the facts to prove it.

Many people are nervous about having photos on Facebook. Threats loom over the heads of professionals who worry that someone of importance will see an unfavorable photo of them. There are a few ways to remedy this problem.

1. The ‘Limited Profile’ option allows you to add ‘friends’ to your ‘limited profile’ list. Each Facebook user can create their own ‘limited profile’ and can opt not to have photos visible.

2. By going to: a. ‘Settings’ b. ‘Privacy’ – ‘manage’ c. Scroll down to ‘Photos Tagged of You’ – You can choose who views the photos other tag of you among the following options: ‘Everyone’, ‘My Networks and Friends’, ‘Friends of Friends’, ‘Only Friends’ and ‘Custom’. I have chosen the ‘Custom’ option and selected ‘Only Me’.

3. By going to: a. ‘Photos’ b. ‘Album Privacy’ c. Next to each album uploaded you have the same options as 2. c. When I upload an album I am selective about which photos I upload and then choose the ‘Only Friends’ option.

Having photos makes your Facebook page more lively. Being selective about who sees your photos is smart.
