Plus, there's the terribly addictive Scrabulous :)
Anyway, I can be found at:
Anyway, my profile:
YouTube is conceptually over my head. I know people who spend hours - hours!!! - on YouTube every day just watching videos, following links, watching more. I just can't do it. I'll watch if someone I know posts something, or if somebody sends me a link, but... I think I'm the only person in my generation who doesn't "get" YouTube.
My profile can be located at:
I recently discovered the LibraryThing.com group... I think everyone here should join!
And now there is a My LibraryThing application! I wish that it included bookcovers, though.
Thanks Gene, I'll have to look into that. Is it simple? Because if it ain't I'm in trouble. (smiles) How are you BTW?
Utube, in the context of LT can be useful.
In another post on this group I talked about "emotional Music".
An energetic member - Rdurick - assembled examples from Utube to
illustrate/give examples of some of the music we were talking about.
Seeing a film clip added to the emotion. eg.
Thus I occassionally trawl thru Utube looking for examples to better make a point.
But, Facebook I don't get. :-)
Well yes, obviously, in some contexts YouTube can be useful.
The thing I don't "get" about YouTube is when I go to someone's house, and they say "Think of a word," and I say "Armadillo" and we spend the next half hour watching videos of armadillos before it's their turn to think of a word. And we do this for hours and it's supposed to be entertainment, because this is how they entertain themselves when they're alone.
Apparently it's just me, but spending four hours watching useless video clips is not fun, alone or with anyone else.
Regarding Facebook, I'm on Myspace and have thought about joining Facebook, but I really only want to keep up with one! How does Facebook differ from Myspace? Is it worth it to join if I'm already on Myspace? My husband does both.
I do the genuine social stuff (and play lots of Scrabulous!) on Facebook.
Facebook also has an application with an LT feed so your profile will show your recent additions.
I think the best part about YouTube is that you can watch funny clips from your favorite tv shows or movies, its just fun to watch funny moments rather than whole long things. thats what i use it for anyway.
One of the things I like about Facebook is the ability to show people what I am listening to by using the LAST FM application. If you come to my profile, click on my name "theresawilliams" at the end of the song list, and it should take you to the LAST FM site, and the site will tell you how to put your listening pleasures on your Facebook profile.
Long time, no talk. I've been on facebook for quite a while, so let's be "facebook friends."
If I used Mac's browser, Safari, it would probably work. This is not the first website where I have run into this problem, the site telling me I don't have Java enabled. I suspect either Mac or Firefox will have to fix it.
xenchu, sorry about your macdifficulties. Hope you can get it fixed. I'm up to 8 LT/Facebook friends now. Let's keep them coming!
I've been on Facebook less than a year. I find it useful because so much of my life revolves around a university life: students, colleagues, and former classmates. FB is a handy way to keep up with a lot of people and to connect with people with similar interests.
I go to FB every day and click on "home." That shows me at a glance who has changed their "status," who has added an application, who has joined a group, etc. The repetition of names/faces helps me because I deal with so many people each year.
FB also makes it handier for my students to contact me. You don't have to remember an e-mail address: you just click on a picture and, voila, you can send a message. It also makes it easier for me to network with editors and writers. It's a one-stop place for networking.
I like it because my students can get to know another side of me on my FB profile. I have photos of friends, family, and students on my profile. I have videos of students I have made in some of my classes. I can also get to know my students better this way. It's a great tool, for instance, for approaching very shy students.
You can start your own groups on Facebook, too.
I have an app. called circle of friends. So I can create groups of people with similar traits or interests. So I have a group for students, a group for colleagues, and a group for LTers. I can send a message to multiple people at the same time by using this feature.
The gadgets are addictive and that's why FB has them. But it's also kind of cool to send someone a virtual birthday cake or give a virtual hug when you can't give one in person. I've gotten to know my colleagues who are on FB better than I would have normally: I can see their song preferences, I can make a sketch and send it to them, I can send them a poem, I can tell them happy birthday (FB keeps up with birthdays!).
FB also has live chat. Or you can turn that feature off.
I guess it works for some better than others, all according to one's needs.
I also check both daily. I'm of course more partial to LibraryThing, even though I didn't find this Art is Life group for months, and have only been in here a few weeks, I suppose. I've now pulled out of the other groups because not much was happening there.
Theresa, you will be missed sorely. But we're vicariously enjoying what your are about to enter. We trust that we'll get a full report when you return. Try to capture some of Motherwell's residual spirit while you're in that town! He and Rothko were as close as those temperaments would allow--real soul mates.
Maybe we can find a way to make FB relevant to us. There are lots of people on FB that aren't on LT.
And one of the best things about FB is the ability to share photos and videos. Remember that!
Don't let yourself get lured into adding every application! The applications are, for the most part, pretty dumb. Although there are a few gems - Catbook is my personal favorite.
