Yesterday was an extremely busy day for me in RL, so much so that I didn’t even have time to post yesterday.
After spending some time this morning catching up on things, I think I’m glad I was gone.
I don’t have a Facebook (because I loathe their policies, and also because they wouldn’t accept Feldragonne as a last name, the b*st*rds).
I’ve often considered whether I should join up, and every now and again, the internal debate starts again.
I’d probably get more traffic and more interaction on my blog if I had a FB.
I’ve considered setting up a page rather than a profile, as that would follow their TOS, so I wouldn’t have to worry about the account getting suspended or deleted.
But then I get wind of yet another FB drama and I just think – nope.
SL is a place for me to have fun and do my own thing.
Sometimes it’s lonely, but that’s my own fault for being a platform hermit. 😛
And usually about the time I’m considering trying to be social, I get wind of some kind of drama, and I just – can’t.
I don’t have the time or energy or desire to deal with drama.
However, even with extra groups (and alts in groups), I never have enough for all the shops and stores and events I want to keep up with.
I follow blogs, of course, but not everyone has blogs.
Everyone seems to have a FB.
So, fellow bloggers, dancers, and SLers – is it worth it to have a FB account?
Does it help your blog traffic?
Do you have a page for your avatar/business, or do you have an actual profile and take your chances with getting it deleted if it gets reported?
If you have an account, is it under your actual SL name, or have you made it seem more like a RL name to lessen the chances of deletion?
Does having a different name cause confusion?
I ask because I have trouble myself keeping track of people when names don’t match.
If I know someone in SL as John Smith and their SL profile is John Jones, it gets confusing to me.
What happens when your account gets deleted?
Do you just make a new profile and hope it doesn’t get caught?
Inquiring minds, here. 😀
