Facebook To Twitter And Back Again

Lately, I have noticed a lot more of people interchanging Twitter and Facebook lingo.

Initially, it was the “@” symbol when speaking at somebody, which Facebook eventually integrated into their platform. Now people are using hashtags on Facebook…and actually in every day speech. I wonder if Facebook will now be incorporating the “#” to their platform. I mean, they are changing enough as it is, why not just tack this on as well?

Even if the platforms do offer different things, social network vs. micro-blogging, their affects on the general public clearly are crossing over. There is no direct line. The trends are passing from one platform to another. Although, I do feel like it is inevitable, I am not sure if I am ready to edge it along. I am still a sucker for the originals of Twitter and Facebook. I still even prefer hand written things like to-do list or calendars than electronic ones. But even with that the new forms are really exciting.

Are you using hashtags on Facebook?
