In the world of social media web sites, we prefer Twitter to Facebook. But just because you drink Pepsi doesn’t mean you can’t keep some coke in the fridge. (Or some Coca-Cola.)
Our Twitter page has been going strong for a while now, with more than 36,000 folks getting instant links to all PFT content plus other random observations and/or failed attempts at humor that I am able to articulate in 140 characters or fewer.
Starting today, our Facebook foray officially has launched. Previously, there had been some unofficial fan pages, or whatever in the hell the right word is. While we appreciate the fact that some of you felt sufficiently strongly about the site to set them up, we would have appreciated it even more if you have more readily surrendered them once we decided to take them over.
All of our posts will appear on our Facebook “wall,” whatever in the hell that is. Beyond that, I currently have no idea how it will work, but we welcome you to become or friends or our fans, whatever in the hell the right term is.
We currently have no plans to set up a MySpace page, because our official youth trends consultant (Florio Jr.) advises me that it MySpace is currently regarded as “lame.” That said, he also currently thinks I’m lame, so maybe it’s a good fit.
