With both Twitter and Facebook at my hands now, I’m deliberating where to update which statuses.Â
I recently began using Twitter. It all began after a colleague of mine took me to a “tweetup” – a meeting of the Israeli tweetup community, or at least the ones that consider themselves social media experts, and a few others.
Anyway, this tweetup was at one of my favorite bars in Tel Aviv, Norma Jean, so I was highly motivated to go to this meeting – Did anyone say Belgian beers? When I arrived, I was asked about my twitter username. I didn’t have one then, but it didn’t stop me from drinking.
So, peer pressure and a couple of beers got to me to finally register. So, I began tweeting under @yohay. I follow people and they follow me. OK.
At first, I connected my Twitter account to my Facebook account. I thought that if Ill update Twitter, it’ll automatically reach FB, and I can broadcast everybody that way.
But when I got replies in different places, it was confusing. The discussions, sometimes with the same people and sometimes with different people, were messy.
So, I decided to separate the accounts. I post different nonsense on each tool.Â
Currently I post weird thoughts on Facebook, and day to day stuff on Twitter. For example, yesterday I wrote on FB “Yohay is in the right place at the right time” and on Twitter I wrote that I’m warming up at home. Well, it was cold outside…
I still prefer Facebook over Twitter – I prefer the structured Status-Comments in Facebook, rather than the non structured list on Twitter.
For those of you using both services, how do you separate the statuses? Are there any rules? Is it random?
