Rejoining the Facebook Masses

Recently, I re-activated my Facebook account. I didn’t think I would ever go back (see my post announcing my Facebook account deletion), but my new job has more than a small presence in the community, and as Community Manager, I need to integrate myself into any community using any service.

Facebook also did something right by implementing an instant messaging service as well as the eventual profile redesign which will hopefully trim down the number of applications on people’s main profile page, one of my biggest complaints.

With Twitter having many huge issues, Facebook is looking like the brighter, more active community to be a part of. I hate to say it, but I don’t think the Twitter killer will be another Twitter-like service, but instead something stable and more captivating.

If you want to check out my Facebook profile, please head on over and add me. Make sure though that you write a custom message letting me know who you are and where you came from, or I will decline.

How many people have come back to Facebook after deciding to leave? Who among you are thinking of leaving Facebook? Let me know in the comments below.

    I’m more partial to Twitter, despite its adolescent page design and frequent downtime. Facebook requires building and maintaining a rich profile to get the most out of it. With Twitter you can skip all of that and go straight to commenting, and you’re forced to do so in a minimalist fashion that respects other people’s time.

    That said, the rest of the world’s on Facebook, so I guess that means that I’m on Facebook too!
