to facebook or not to facebook
that is todays question… see I know I’ll find it hard not to waste loads of time, reconnecting with old friends if I sign up.. the main reason I haven’t so far is that it poses no business benefit to any of my plans, but a time loss risk!
That situation is changing… you see I’ll be pushing the eBook through every contact and avenue I can possibly think of… it would probably make sense to have the book on a facebook page, so that when I re-connect with people they say “oh Luke wrote a book, lets have a look…”.
I really hate divulging my information into another online “walled garden“… OpenID just isn’t the norm yet, will holding out until it is have a negative impact on my marketing plans? Almost certainly, yes.
You see, I really resent that I don’t have full control over my information or network, I can’t wait till openID or similar kicks all these separate “networking” sites into touch… it’s not social networking to me, if I can’t re-use the information.. it’s just another platform that knows too much about me.
