Back on Facebook (but not Twitter)

Ok, I don't want to miss the boat.  So I have reactivated my Facebook account.  I'm still not very convinced of its value, but I am talking to a few folks with whom I had lost touch.  And there is a certain voyeuristic thrill in reading what other people put on there (even if they want you to read them).

But still no Twitter.  I refuse to use it or look at it.  The site went down yesterday - again.  It's very common, apparently.

I liked this article from over a year ago:  Twitter is Down: 15 Alternative Things to Do.  The list is good (well, at least number 15 is good):

  1. Talk about Twitter being down on FriendFeed
  2. Talk about Twitter being down onFacebook
  3. Talk about Twitter being down over IM
  4. Leave a comment on a blog post about Twitter being down (preferably this one)
  5. Talk about Twitter being down via text message
  6. Talk about Twitter being down over email
  7. Tip TechCrunch that Twitter is down
  8. Write your own blog post about Twitter being down (for an example, see this blog post)
  9. Talk about Twitter being down on Pownce Plurk
  10. Talk about Twitter being down on Identi.ca
  11. Talk about Twitter being down internally on Yammer
  12. Think about Twitter being down
  13. Call an actual friend to talk about Twitter being down
  14. Invite an actual friend over to talk about Twitter being down
  15. Go outside
