Twitter, Facebook, and the Blog

Category : Technology/TwitterFacebook.txt

I'm exploring the social media tools - Facebook and Twitter - figuring out how they work and how I can make use of them.

I've had an entry on Facebook for some time, but I've just come back to it.

I think it's also the iPhone. I've set the iPhone up so I can see incoming messages on SMS, email, Facebook, and Twitter, and I can respond accordingly.

My tweets appear automatically on FaceBook and on this blog.

And I can send my photos from the iPhone to either Twitter or Facebook. So the mechanisms are all pretty slick.

If I can update my blog from my iPhone, I'm all set. But I want to use my own tool and I think I know how. It just needs time.

For a start, I'm going to use Twitter to give quick updates to Hai Hwee on what I'm working on. This way, she doesn't always need to make the long commute over to my place.

If I become a convert to this way of life, you'll hear it here.

P.S.: Thanks, Chih Chao, Clarence & Shoop for turning me on to this. It's like drinking water from a fire hose. But I'm drinking deep.
