Facebook on the way out?

facebook tumbleweed

I’m not sure what’s causing it but my Facebook newsfeed lately is starting to look like a deserted ghost town. Hardly any updates, and only from a select few people.
Maybe people have moved on to newer and greater social networks or perhaps we have finally reached the end of an era and the whole social media hype is dying down. Whatever it is, it sure is quiet.
Interestingly enough as my Facebook newsfeed is slowing down, traffic on this website is picking up. Considerably.
So maybe tablets and mobile phones are having an impact on how people browse and use the web? Either way, hi there!

The Bermuda Triangle of Productivity

Where many wasted hours go to die

Wasting time on Facebook

My car’s in for repairs, so as I wait for the news as to whether or not I’ll need to sell a kidney (any takers btw?) we’ve been adding some games on Facebook, FrontierVille and Super Fun Town in particular. They’re entertaining little wastes of time. Frontierville is a bit of a farm managing thingy wheres Super Fun Town aims to be more of a Sim City clone.
I must say, for flash games… not bad. They sure do make the hours fly by. The only downside is that you always have to wait for energy or money in order to continue, and you need to a lot of people as in-game neighbours in order to progress on the later levels.

Social Media Love-In

Gotta catch ’em all!
I’m clicking like mad as a result of the ProBlogger Social Media Love-In. Yesterday I’ve been adding a lot of Facebook people, today I added each and everyone’s Twitter, all 538 of them. Thank god for tabs and middle clicking in Firefox.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this ripples out. Already met some interesting people on both FB & Twitter, still have to work my way through the rest, but I’m really looking forward to seeing the impact this is going to have on all our interactions, is it going to make us visit eachother’s sites more, will new projects be started because of this, and so on…
For now I still have a lot of clicking to do, so for all the ProBloggers out there; hi and welcome!

And for anyone new to the party I’ll re-add my links here:
