Okay so one of my twitter friends posted a question about aggregation on his blog post, Aggregating Social Media Updates Pros and Cons and he asked us for our opinions. So here’s my answer:
I hate to give a female answer such as it depends, but it depends. LOL If I’m announcing something for business then I will use an aggregating service. Right now my favorite one is the selective twitter app on facebook. I like that app because I can choose which twitter statuses get posted on facebook. This is important to me because I can get quite chatty on twitter. A lot of times I’m sending @replies to my twitter friends. I have some friends on Facebook that aren’t on twitter. That’s why I don’t push out all of my twitter conversations to Facebook. If all they see from me is LOL, but they didn’t get to see the original joke because they weren’t on twitter, that can get kind of confusing.
I do use ping.fm if I’m announcing something that can stand alone. Like if I’m posting my last blog post or if I’m promoting a link, then I’ll post it on ping.fm I know it seems like it takes up a lot of time, but I don’t want anyone confused.
I hope that answered your question, Carlton!
