Facebook: lessons learned after the fact…

As I have confessed in the past, I’m a Facebook fan. Personally, I use it for keeping up with work contacts, and networking. In some respects it has replaced my office address book. Other members of my family use it to keep up with friends and relations. As a result, we have copious amounts of photos from a family wedding last Friday. But the point is, these are separate accounts and used for different things. Putting everything together can, as this excellent post from Meg Pickard demonstrates, can lead to stultifying confusion
