Learning about Twitter hashtags opened up a new can of black beans. (Not worms, because there are a lot of them in our compost bin.) Just like that, I found an easy-to-comprehend article about hashtags. That got me curious to go to my Twitter account, which I rarely do because I plead the old person's lament of "I don't understand how it works." Yet, I have a Twitter account that is hooked up to the Facebook pages for my two blogs -- this one and Take 25 to Hollister. A technical friend told me I could do that, so I did and left it at that. Until yesterday morning when I daringly added a hashtag to a Facebook post. I had to find out if I used it correctly and appropriately.
So, there I was at Twitter. No story to tell other than amongst my clicking of here and there, I came across The 9 Must-Read Social Media Aricles of 2014. I probably would've passed on reading the article if a cute old typewriter wasn't at the top of the page. That article lead me to three more articles, of which one or all may interest you.
- In What is Public?, Anil Dash explores the reality of privacy and public in social media.
- Mat Honan wrote about how his news feed in Facebook changed after two days of liking stuff on Facebook, including things he doesn't like, in I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here's What it Did to Me.
