EventsLatest get-together</li></li></ul><li>Facebook applications to make your twitter life a more manageable one.<br />“If I send a lot of tweets in a short time period then my Facebook status updates quickly. Am I really that busy?”<br />“...a lot of my friends on facebook don’t use twitter. My frequent status updates and retweets made no sense to them at all.”<br />“does it really take me that long to update my Facebook status manually? No. And I don’t even have to login to do it – I can set us SMS for my account and update my status via my cellphone”<br />“updates will be in sync”<br />Twitter and Facebook Integration<br />
  6. 6. Why i’ve given up on Facebook for a month.<br />“I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Facebook.” <br />“The daily ritual of checking Facebook, documenting the happenings of your life via a status update”<br />“We’re now starting to rely on Facebook and other social media tools to build our relationships with people, ‘Face to Face’ interactions are fast becoming the exception rather than the norm.”<br />“Can we really apply ‘Fast Food’ principles to building relationships?”<br />“I’ve found it’s becoming harder to separate Facebook and the real world with each passing day!”<br />No Facebook for one month<br />
  7. 7. Reliance on Facebook is dangerous in more ways than one.<br />“For those that suffer the wrath of Facebook, it can be devastating.”<br />“Having your Facebook account shut down is a similar experience to losing a cell phone.”<br />“Personally, my reliance on Facebook has grown exponentially. I now add business contacts and friends and frequently rely on Facebook for their contact information.”<br />“...if by some fluke your account is canceled, you will be screwed.”<br />“For the time being, all you can do is manually backup the contact information of your Facebook friends. This is going to have to change as Facebook’s user base grows...”<br />Danger of Reliance<br />
