Is Twitter causing changes at Facebook? Facebook has announced they are changing their website. The biggest change is the "status update" which will change from "What are you doing?" to "What's on your mind?"
"It's going to be more about the message you want to send to others than what you're doing at that very moment," says Meredith Chin, Facebook's manager of corporate accounts. Or as the Facebook describes it in a blog post: "One way to think about this is as a timeline -- or a stream. As people share more ... the pace of updates accelerates." Sort of like those annoying tickers that run across the bottom of cable news channels, but all the news is about people who never get off their couches. www.time.com .
Twitter is now everywhere you look, it seems, and is the place where you share "What are you doing?" and Facebook is the place where you share "What's on your mind?"
Twitter is all about action, for saying that traffic is bad at 281 and Bitters or that you are headed to Starbucks. Facebook is all about thought, for saying you are considering what breed of dog to get.
What about blogs? Blogs are great for sharing thoughts, communicating, and networking. You choose how you want to use your blog.
