Facebook Timeline: Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing?

 

Have you heard the buzz over Facebook Timeline?

The Pros:

     – Users have a vastly-improved way to organize and manage their profile in a more engaging, chronologically-accurate way.

The Cons:

     – Advertisers can now more accurately target products and services to users, based on the wealth of well-organized personal information they’ve shared.

The new Facebook Timeline recently unveiled to mixed reviews.  It boasts the offering of allowing users to present their profile in a much more chronologically-sound and visually-pleasing aesthetic – almost like an interactive slide-show, even allowing users to enter information that has happened before they signed up for Facebook.  But let’s not be fooled – Social Media has always been a tool for advertising. What’s the reason many Facebook users won’t care about the data-farming and targeted ads? The usefulness of the product itself outweighs the assumed invasion of privacy. We’re willing to bet that most users enjoy and revel in their consumerist lifestyles – in this fast-paced, instant-gratification Information Age, they WANT to have options spat at them left and right!

Google+

 

While it remains to be seen whether Google’s social networking application will be “The Facebook Killer,” this new entrant into the Cauldron of Connectivity is creating quite a buzz, even though still in Beta testing phases.  “How is Google+ different from Facebook?” you ask – well, we found a nifty graphic comparing the big points!

 

Many people like the look and feel of the Google+ interface, while others just like that there’s something new in the social media sandbox to play with. User registrations are still by invite only, so perhaps you have a friend or twelve who would be nice enough to send you an invite.  If you’ve found facebook growing too stagnant for you, or you just want something new, give it a shot!  And while you’re there,  Check out our Google+ page!
