Trimming LJ, Expanding Facebook

I don't seem to get through many of the journals I used to read.

I am going to cut down for no reason other than it is easeier to
keep up with Facebook than LJ for some of you.

If you are someone I communicate with mostly on Facebook, don't
be surprised when you get a defriending here. It just means I'm
moving our communication there.

I'm not so enchanted with facebook. I agree that it is a great place to keep up with people you just want an occasional superficial "hey, how ya' doing?" But here I can write and tell whole stories and post pictures to go along with them. I find that a much more fulfilling release, whether or not anyone reads it.

To me, Facebook seems like one big public IM site. What am I missing there? I know I'm new to it and there is a lot about it I haven't figured out yet. But it just doesn't seem to have the depth of LJ.

Well, you can post pictures (and I think much easier than on LJ) and posting is considered 'notes' on Facebook. If someone has chosen to add you as a friend, they see a small leadin to your note. You can read the whole post if you want, or not. I can have posts, comments, status updates, etc. for the people I want (maybe 4 or 5 people) sent to my cell phone, where I can also comment back.

I try to be logged into facebook when I post on lj, so if you see that on my FB you can jump over and see what I posted about :)

Im on face-book more than LJ because I can post right from my phone. It also cross posts from my blog, which this is just a copy of. You can add me there, Darcykins Rymer, and I would love to keep up with whats going on!

I find myself on Facebook a lot more too, so I know what ya mean! I mostly use my lj as a place to vent..honestly not caring if anyone reads or not! That's something I certainly CAN'T do on Facebook because I have too many "real life" folks on my page over there! Too many of 'em actually KNOW my in-laws. *winks* Not sure how much I can trust them!

It's easier to post pictures and just touch base over there. You can add me if you want..should be able to find me with my email lisalan1978@windstream.net
