Re: Cruising and Facebook

The thing with Facebook is you have to join, to view. That's why I use my website and blog, as well as here. Where anyone can follow ... at least if I get off my fat, lazy a$$ and get back out there this spring. It's hard leaving a place where you can live for $300 a month plus groceries.

Re: Cruising and Facebook

The nice thing about FB is that I can do it on the go. I can (and have) literally posted underway with pics and a short writeup. I posted on the Tuna we caught minutes after doing it (and Kris may have been posting while it happened). It kinda gives you a immediate feel for what and where that person is and what is happening.



The Facebook stuff automatically updates to my web site. I also carry a blog which automatically updates to the web site. SO when we reach a port and I have some time, I can reach out and type up more details and more pics.

I have not published the web site yet. It is very large and I am still Proofreading it. Even when I publish it will no doubt have a lot of issues but hey!... I'm trying and it's free.

Anyways, you might find you keep people up-to-date a lot more if you FB PBeezer. With a smart phone, it is as simple as type, attach and post and doesn't take much longer than that.

Regarding Twitter, I also have a twitter account but it is more for really short one-liners so I don't use it much. For us, FB seems the better tool.
