Facebook Revolution?

I'm not sure what the point of this is, but I'm noticing that a lot of my favorite blogs post to facebook as well. So I'll bite- here's the official home of the revolution on facebook. Is it just me or is there something disturbingly ironic about that?

One of us!

    Hi David- I like this conundrum that you've presented. It's as though all roads lead to "Rome" or in this case "Facebook". The situation is actually creating a sense of redundancy and leaves me feeling perpetually stuck in the 5th parallel. Remember wherever you go there you are. Even if that means your destination always turns out to be facebook!! xo, Iris

    Hi David,
    I am trying to keep up with all the marketing for my blogs and it seems putting it on facebook and twitter is the way to go lately. I think it helps get people to see what you're doing and maybe discuss it with you although I prefer the arted2.0 ning, but I "liked" your page and Facebook so go figure. You have one more friend! Good luck with school.

    Facebook is indeed a little bit of a conundrum for me right now. I'm not thrilled about constantly sharing my personal life, but on the other hand its a great way to keep in touch with friends and family while living abroad. I like the concept of the network, but deplore their privacy practices. And then navigating it in the classroom is a tricky issue- it seems like a great place to create a class page (since the students are all there anyway) but its also their personal space in which i have no intention of intruding.

    Am I the only Facebook holdout left? I guess my epitaph will say "He wasn't on Facebook."

    No? As tepid towards facebook as my feelings are, I'm surprised that your interest in all things 2.0 hasn't at least piqued your curiosity. FB's population is bigger than most countries! ;)

    I am also a Facebook holdout for two reasons: 1) I don't want my kids on it, so I'm trying to lead by example; 2)AEA recommends that teachers don't do it, which seems logical. Can I add one more thing--love tech, but at some point, you just have to draw the line.
