Today marks the end of my FaceBook oversharing. I’m sure that for many of you this announcement is long overdue. For those of you who aren’t linked to me on FaceBook, the situation I created looked like this:
I channeled all of my activity from Twitter, Google Reader, YouTube, Pandora … and every other social networking site possible into my FriendFeed, and was pushing that firehose of stuff up onto FaceBook, quite often pushing the activity from your other friends off the screen. If FaceBook had more robust filtering and viewing capabilities available to their users, this would have been great, but that’s not the case.
I think I came up with a good solution. I created a new private room on FriendFeed that only draws from a subset of my shared stuff, which should hopefully cut down on the noise, and make me a much more likable FaceBook citizen. Please let me know if there’s still too much (or not enough).
