What are you doing and whats on your mind...

Aah well! It's been long since I patiently sat down in front of my comp and wrote a blog entry that made sense. Today I look back at those 60 odd poems I wrote and I kinda laugh, wondering what was on my mind?

This is about What Are You Doing? and What's On Your Mind?....Yes! its about Twitter and Facebook

I started Facebooking when one fine day few years ago I received an Invitation and I was like..."hmmm..." and today I have around 400 odd friends (I really dont count) out of which few are some people who I haven't even met in my life! Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook is I guess correct in saying that it isnt about connecting with people you've met in real life....there is a lot more to it right here!

So Facebook is not just about 'What's on your mind?' as mentioned in a social media summit that I attended today, it is about engaging the audience into something. Which is interesting.....
People are hating the new Facebook and like Mark, I too couldn't care less! 

Lets face it, people are hating the new layout, but they are not boycotting the site, they are not NOT using the network, they are still adding friends, they are trying to get used to the new Facebook! Hypocrisy.....and social media just go hand in hand!

Twitter was an interesting find, had read about it being a rave in the US and just logged on and registered years back! At first I found it really stupid...It is now that I've started using Twitter, not so much but yeah...somewhat...

What are you doing is the simple question that Twitter asks.....which is interesting....I'm still exploring!

I agree. Hypocrasy and social media go together. Very much. and also that facebook is much more than just friends. It's the biggest and the cheapest tool to reach out to youth, like minded ppl etc! Nice article
