Paul Cornell's Thoughts On Facebook

It's sort of buried as part of his annual Christmas blogging, but Paul has some wonderfully interesting thoughts about Facebook on his blog. I think we still need to find out how to best use something like Facebook -- and I think one of the challenges goes to the multiple identities that we all have.

And one of the challenges with a lot of these tools is that we've got multiple identities in real life as well. There's my professional identity -- my career, my work life. There are various social identities for each social circle. And while there may be some social overlap between the two -- you don't really want to burden far away people with local events (I accidentally invited a non-local friend to a local event recently), or work people with various social events of yours.

It's nice to have some places to share this sort of information around -- but there really are some challenges with it all. And so I found Paul's thoughts on Facebook -- and really, social networking as a whole -- to be very interesting.
