~ current issue: adding someone.
See... in a "blog", you are just whomever you're representing.
In a journal, you're relatively anon... but for true, the focus is on creating new connections, reaching out and maybe even towards the future.
In facebook, the focus is on reaching into your past and present... and grabbing people.
I add someone in LJ and it's eh... maybe they'll add me back and maybe it'll be a good add.
Maybe it'll suck... in which case, click-clack-moo... gone.
But in FB ... it's someone you know.
I can just see some coworker saying "dude added me to his facebook... does he think I know him that well?"
And yes, that's insecurity speaking, but still.
What if it's a bad add. You honestly dropping someone on FB that you work with?
And the "suggestion box"... gah!! You hated me in highschool... why on earth...
It's the "merging" of the online with the meatline. Facebook, mainlines the meatline and you have to follow meat rules. LJ is more online and way less bloody.
