    Social (Media) Butterfly

    You know how much of a technical dinosaur you have become when you discover stuff everybody else has known since - oh say 2007.
    Today I figured out how to auto publish the posts from my blog onto Twitter and how to translate the RSS feed to a newsreader called Feedly. Just call me a social media butterfly.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I really useful service you might like is IFTTT (if this, then that), it allows you to trigger online events based on other online events. So, for instance, whenever I post a photo on Instagram it also gets posted to my Flickr account.

    I thought for a moment your latest post was a deliberate joke about twitter when I read

    I never have been a big fan of Twitter. It always seemed to me to be a rather vacuous stream of consciousness application not enough text to really say anything worthwhile. However Im changing my mind about it. Perhaps Ive




    Yes I did click into it eventually and then found the complete message, but you get what I mean ?

    I don't do twitter or facebook (unless someone wants to show me something , then I go on there grudgingly (via my blank profile))

    PS: I don't quite understand who you're doing it for ?, is for family or something?

    I like Twitter. I have four accounts.

    One tweets solely about one of my other interests and is followed solely by similarly monomaniacal accounts.
    One is locked and can only be followed by colleagues in my freelance work
    One is in my real name, and is the public image of work. Mostly its followed by other people trying to do exactly the same thing lollllll

    And one is utterly anonymous, where I park all my random but real thoughts and is followed by the fifty kind souls on the planet who want to read that piffle. In an ideal world I would be parking those thoughts on Facebook, but FB is mostly full of uptight tutting about diets and dating and the provision of classical music in schools blah blah blah

    Yes, Twitter is my favourite of the big social sites.
    I have a number of different accounts, none that active at the moment. 2 personal ones, 3 to promote my writing and 2 parody ones.

    This is the limit of my internet interaction. Web page, Facebook page, twitter all operated in my name by MrsO.
    I don't even seem to be able to post (embed?) a video in my posts here so just post the links.
    Did manage to do photobucket.

    C'mon Mark, come clean, your lovely wife is also doing all of your IWL interaction isn't she?

    She just shouts over to you I've just said this or that and they love it , and you nod approvingly...

    I must say she has hairy arms/wrists though

    I received an email today, I think it was sent to all GDC (UK dentist) members about the importance of keeping professional and personal accounts separated, seems to support your position of anonymity here to protect your professional persona.
