I admit I've been VERY slow to sign up for Facebook and Twitter -- there isn't enough time in the day/week/month to be online constantly, and I'm online plenty with Ravelry. I can't even keep up with blog readings, even with an RSS reader.
Anyway, for family reasons it was fun to get onto Facebook, although I find it slightly voyeuristic.
But today I'm inside a warm house, surrounded by more Sierra snow, and playing with "following" people on Twitter. At first I found it difficult to find my favorite knitting "businesses", but quickly realized that once you find a major "name," you can check their "followers" and find others that you have been looking for.
But what is the etiquette of "following" individuals when they have their own names up as well as their business/craft names, as in the case of Jess and Casey from Ravelry? I really don't need to know their personal Twitter stuff, but do want their Ravelry updates.
And another question: why are many more people on Twitter than Facebook? Is it just easier?
