Hmm, when did I hook this blog up to my Twitter feed? :)
Probably a while ago, and then I forgot.
At any rate, I was a little surprised to see a link to the recent Christmas Craft Sale in Winnipeg posts on my “Sent Tweets” list on Hootsuite, and it got me to thinking about how recently, I’ve started to see what Yahoo! articles people are reading, through my Facebook news feed, as well.
I can understand how some people are hesitant to get too “in” to using the Internet when the openness of Social Media is forced upon them in some ways. The fact that it’s convenient to use the Facebook login to access a whole bunch of other websites these days doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a good idea to use that convenience.
I’m a pretty private person myself and being in the Social Media marketing field has really given me a lot to think about in terms of online personal image vs personal lifestyles. In particular, the permanence of the online personal image, and the lack of immediate clarity as to WHEN the image building factors were put online.
Personally, when I hooked my Yahoo! account to my Facebook account recently while considering joining a Yahoo Group, I made sure to disconnect it again before any of the saucy headlines caught my eye and tattled to my family of my prurient interests, like that article about the guy who had the biggest thing EVER…
Have you ever had something embarrassing on your Facebook News feed because of some site you didn’t realize published to it?
