Facebook is ideal for keeping in touch with people whom you do not wish to call.

That makes it worth it.

I personally have not used facebook or twitter. I have a friend that swears by them, well at least twitter. I still have not found either facebook or twitter useful for myself.

I have tried and found the rss feed stuff to have potential as I can watch it in my sidebar and see when new interesting things pop up in the various sections of a sites I like to follow. But for the most part I just check my email for updates on specific threads I am following.

Well we now have social bookmark icon thingys at the top of threads. Seems a pretty unobtrusive place to put it.

For thous of your that find it useful enjoy.

Funny thing is when i did a google search for simplymaya facebook (yes i lost the page) the other day the first thing that popped up was "Simply Maya User Community - Whats the #$%#% point of Facebook"

Not a great start to my finding work as a facebook marketing consultant I think

Just want to say thanks guys, since I put the share button things on forum. This post has been shared on facebook 8 times. No other posts, just this one lol. Jays post on a day at the studio would have been a great thing to share, a very interesting read.

But no, instead my mad rantings get inflicted on the world just what facebook needs another loony on a soapbox

Dave

--EDIT--

Logged in on the wrong machine lol
