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.
