So now Plurk has a plug-in that lets you send something to them (to “plurk” I guess) and have it update your FB status. Twitter has had this for a while.
I have been torn ever since I started seeing people use Twitter for FB updates, and am now even more so as I try to use plurk effectively. I don’t have nearly as many people following me or whom I follow in plurk so it’s a bit more manageable right now that my Twitter “existence” and lets me work around in it a bit more.
The first time I used twitter extensively, it was at the ELI Annual conference, so most of the people whom I follow are professional peers. Not that we don’t exchange random stuff via twitter now and then (Educause ’08 was fun), but for the most part the stuff I put up as my status on FB is not of the same vein as that which goes up on twitter.
And now plurk can connect to FB, too. Now, I have been having more fun on plurk because of the smaller number of followers and etc, but that is actually the cause of my dilemma. I feel that one needs some separation between all these systems.
I don’t know. It’s a tough one with which to deal.
