Reblog from carpeaqua – Your Twitter is not your blog is not your Tumblr is not your FriendFeed

April 10th, 2008

This is a smart manifesto of sorts on how to use multiple social media platforms well.  With multiple places to post content (blog, Twitter, Tumblog, etc.) it’s very easy to end up re-listing the same content in multiple spots, but that tends to dilute the individuality of each outlet.

When I started exploring social media in earnest I really wanted everything to tie together, but there is no need.  The offline pieces of my life don’t naturally tie themeselves together offline, so I shouldn’t try to force them together online.  Thanks carpeaqua.

My Tumblog imports all of this blog’s posts as links, so I am breaking one of the rules here.  I should take out that reblog link. This blog works better for the work side of my life and the other one for personal interests: music, cycling and occasionally a dash of yoga, skiing or something else.  I think I’ll keep it that way.
