Linking to a Facebook post – Roger awards

 

Hmm I saved the post then clicked on my saved posts and then again on this one and copied the url.

I might like to have some posts here as I can give them tags!  Find them later.

Click the F top right to go to the post.  Unfortunately the permanence is entirely up to Facebook. There is no actual data on this page other than the link.

OK — Here it is for as long as I maintain this blog. Copied from the post on Facebook

My Activity Stream

I am moving around in the social network space like a sleeper tossing & turning in bed trying to get comfy.

Managed to get my Tweets off Facebook so I now have a sense of belonging to Facebook, some dear friends and family are there. Twitter is more remote but I follow a buch of great people, they mediate my news.

But for anyone, me included, who wants to see everything I do online it can be seen here in Friendfeed

It is cool, just searched on Friendfeed: from:walterlogeman librarything and saw a bit of history.

Can I publish all that data somewhere where it belongs to me?
