Everyone seems to be affected by, talking about and dealing with the changes to the largest, life sharing, digital platform out there… I don’t even have to say the name, you know what it is. Not to mention… IT is in the title.
So yet another thing to be careful of is the “Add to Timeline” Button. Essentially it is a “Gesture” feature that automatically shares your activity with all your contacts, dare I say friends, all the time, forever and ever and ever or until they change it again. CLICK HERE FOR THE ARTICLE. So as usual check your settings and be careful when pushing the “add to timeline” button because someone might find out that you have a secret fetish around eating radishes with smoked salmon tartar based on the articles you read. If we all were a little more transparent maybe we might not have to hide our secret mild mannered super hero alter ego.
As much as the Facebook platform changes I think it continually keeps the user thinking about how to use the technology and keeps the average user current with what they are communicating to the world of individuals they have made friends with. It is a forced accountability to the technology. Everyone knows Facebook will change its features / API in a few months. People!!! We have been conditioned to expect it and yes it is too late for you to change, resistance is futile. It is a great strategy. Why? You may ask. Intentional or not it keeps you engaged with the Facebook brand because you are constantly noodling with your Facebook settings and you have invested time which keeps you coming back for more.
Also, to some, it almost may seem like “our” Facebook development team is constantly changing how we share OUR information just to see if they can catch us off guard or just make our lives miserable. I don’t think that is the case. HMMM… Maybe it could be important to an advertiser that wants to know who we are so they can sell us the things we WANT (like really really really WANT and maybe we need a little).
For those looking to be a part of the digital communication between friends and families life’s we are looking to get to know who you are and see what you read, hear what you listen to and look where you go. It helps us to know who you are or just be nosey busy bodies. (Maybe the latter is all of us)
All in all I think Facebook should help teach us the lessons in a song I sing with my children.
Be careful little ears what you hear,
Be careful little feet where you go,
Be careful little eyes what you see,
Be careful little fingers what Facebook item you share by clicking the “add to timeline” button.
