Facebook Notes- Thoughts
A few days back I penned down some thoughts on facebook notes and while doing that I found facebook notes really useful. Not many people use it though, it’s not in your face and not very glamourised but very utalitarian. Here are the thoughts originally penned here: http://www.facebook.com/pandeysaurabh?v=app_2347471856#!/notes/saurabh-pandey/the-power-of-facebook-notes/326953028518
I find facebook notes more powerful than twitter. I can put random thoughts, receive comments and the thoughts grow into something more meaningful and bigger in size.
Tweets are ephemeral, they are lost quickly, tweets are also restrictive.
Overall I guess one needs to intelligently use both the apps, it’s a pity though that not many people use notes features.
Facebook also on the other hand needs to work further on notes. For example how do i integrate my notes with my 2 business pages? How can I have common notes across etc.
On the other hand, I have been able to integrate my blog with it and suddenly I have a populous notes section. I can also feel that it’s easir to pen down thoughts than writing a full fledged blog, writing notes is also quicker and one can do it via mobile from anywhere. It looks like a great tool for establishing thought leadership. Just imagining how this tool can be used by many CEOs to express their thoughts and establish tought leadership, not just that ideas can be invited and discussed as well.
Essentially notes are social but less frivoulus than social network comments, notes are microblogs but more comprehensive than twitter, and notes are complete expression through an online dialry just like blogs but much easier to execute , maintain and share.
What’s your thoughts on this?
