"Twitter is our id, Facebook is our Ego" -- :O

"I was speaking with my good friend Howard Lindzon, my partner in several Twitter-related investments, about the differences in the way people communicate on Twitter and Facebook. Howard's sense is that everybody lies on Facebook; that people represent a kind of "false self," so that it is hard to really know what a person is like from their Facebook profile. He feels differently about Twitter, however, holding the belief that people's tweets are a much closer representation of their true self than Facebook. So that someone who is a jerk on Twitter is likely a jerk in real life, and someone who is thoughtful and careful in their tweets is also like that offline. After considering Howard's theory, I am convinced that he is right. Then it hit me. There is a framework for conceptualizing the differences in peoples' communication between these two media: Freud's structural model of the psyche. In short, Twitter is the id, while Facebook is the ego."-Information arbitrage

I had my first twitter account 3 or 4 years ago, same with facebook. I had stopped using twitter 2 years ago.I am still using facebook.

On twitter - no comment.

On Facebook - I just don't agree that people represent a kind of "false self" in facebook. When I share what is on my mind in face book, I really tell what is on my mind without any kyeme or whatsoever. In a way, I believe I am giving my friends an idea on who I really am. Ergo, not a kind of "false self".

My point is...Long live facebook!!

So much about facebook.. lemme just eat my donuts.

naisip ko kase at feeling ko para sa mga taong --ksp ung ganito..panay shoutout kase walang pumapansin/epal sila..haha.. or kase tinatamad ako.. magbabasa ng aktibidades ng iba.. with a comment sa dulo na..so...wa me..care?? hahahhaha

may tyms nmn na feeling sumagap ng tsismis..

so after nyan..nag fesbuk ako... ayoko ng fesbuk nun dhil maraming kung ano anong invites na ewan...tapos later panay shout out na din ako...lols...

at therefore i conclude:
nakakahawa ang pagiging epal...
------------------------------
opinion nya lang ung false self kase syempre may profile at iba pang adds on ang fesbuk..na pwede mo ng lagyan ang mga di katotohanan sa iyong pagkatao (nagsasalita ako para sa sarili ko..syet) ang twitter kase ... tsismisan ng buhay kaya nya nasabi na closer chuva...
siguro kase sa kanya wat u say, is wat u are.. lols at marami pang quotes ukol dyan... pero pwede ka din nmang mag twitter ng bagay na hinde mo naman talaga gingawa... hahaha ayun..lies din yun ahaha..
