Crossposting Comments and Bad Habits

Crosspost to FarceBook? Not gonna happen by me. Ravan Asteris doesn't do FuckYouBook, doesn't have a page. I'd appreciate it if you didn't crosspost comments made in my journal there, period.

Crosspost to Twitter? Ummm, unless the comment stands alone and whole, why would I? I don't echo my twitty shit here - if you want to follow me on Twitter, follow me on Twitter, I'm not going to echo it here for people to get bored, pissed off or confused. So if it's a locked, friends-only post, please don't go blatting your comments here onto Twitter. You'll just confuse people there, annoy people here, and stir up Teh Dramahz.

Sometimes I post about my public LJ entries on Twitter. That's because 140 characters can't say everything. But I don't post to Twitter from here, or from Twitter to here. I may post about a public post, a news item, or whatever, on Twitter. That's what it's for. But I don't violate locks, and I'll thank you not to violate mine.

Likewise, I consider Facebook evil and way too public and Twittering is for people who are into oversharing.

If LJ listens to it's users, they'll drop that option. There are currently two polls out there that I've found so far that are heavily leaning towards either eliminating the feature all together or allowing you a opt out both for your posts and comments.

Links to those polls? Because if TPTB are watching them, I'd love to vote!

This. I don't have a Twitter, either.

This was a really bad move on LJ's part. I wonder if they're going to back down, or at least create a way for users to disable the option on their own journals/communities they own.

Do I have an lj account --- yes! Do I have a Twitter account ---yes (jemyl41). Do I have a Facebook account/page ---yes (Ellen Johnson) Do I want to crosspost? No just no but HELL NO! If I choose to post the same thing on facebook, live journal, My Space or any of the forums to which I belong or even on one of my wordpress blogs or one of my websites, all I have to do is us those Control A, Control C and Control V keys or select and choose copy or paste from the edit file to copy/move all or part of any comment or post to one of my other posting places. That leaves the control of such posting totally in my hands, makes it intentional and avoids accidental sharing of the wrong stuff on the wrong page or place.

Facebook and Twitter are far more public than are my other posting places and a couple of the forums are almost private with one having only three or four participants. I want the freedom to choose. I think most people do.

Just because a site is popular now, like Facebook is, doesn't mean everyone, or even anyone, wants to share everything in so public a medium. What I put there, I want my FACEBOOK friends to see, or others in my sharing choices. What I put on live journal is for my live journal friends and live journal subscribers to see. Now, these are two very different groups and, I, for one, like it that way.

Therefore I simply closed the choice box. I did this especially when I saw that there was not opt-out choice to make otherwise. Get with it LJ! If you ask people if they want to share or crosspost, there should be a NO choice. Thus I will continue to close and ignore and use the old-fashioned copy and paste method to share what tiny bit of stuff I choose to share on Twitter or Facebook. If you want to know what that is, you know how to find me on there as I listed my names in the parentheses in my first paragraph of this comment.

That rant being done. I love you, my ravan beauty daughter! Say hello to your roomies for me too. Peace and Love --Mom

Exactly! I am far more private on Facebook as it goes to a wider audience of people, those who are peersonal friends as well as those who are only friends because we share an interst in marketing, or in one of more of their simulation games. That is a far different group than my live journal friends who are far more "personal" friends than are those many, many more who see my posts on Facebook, and the Twitter group is a whole different game too. I don't like to cross post except in very, very rare circumatances.
