Open Discussion: In Your Social Networks Who's In Your Social Stream?
A question for those of you who use Facebook.
Who do you allow into your conversations on your Facebook Profile Page (not your Business Page)?
The reason I ask this question is simple. One of the most recent upgrades on Facebook allows users to group their Friends on Facebook into lists. You can then post certain topics to all of your lists or segregate your posts by lists.
Sooo.....is this being social? I understand the need for privacy on certain topics, but then why posts these on Facebook? Seriously. If the matter was that private I think I would find another way to communicate with my friends, i.e. in person, over the phone, or even texting.
I do understand the convenience of lists. Maybe you are throwing a party and you want to invite friends and family only. Sure I get that.
But a thought I want to leave is this.....if you are an open networker wouldn't you agree that consumers want to work with you because, in some respect, they are getting to,
KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST you
Maybe your personal postings make you more human, more approachable....just maybe...Maybe you share a comment interest, sentiment, thought, hobby with a consumer....IMAGINE,
KNOW, LIKE and TRUST
I haven't had a need yet to post to lists only on Facebook....maybe for someday, but for now I like my stream the way it is... a mash-up of friends, family, business associates, locals and those from overseas all commenting on when thread, all swimming and talking together in my social stream.
PLEASE NOTE: NOT to be confused with your conversations on your Facebook Business Page.
So please share by commenting. I am listening. Open Discussion: In Your Social Networks, Who's In Your Social Stream?
