the 7 rules of facebook


1. Never require anyone to use Facebook to interact with you in a particular way. For example, always make the same content available in an open format elsewhere.

2. Never require anyone to use Facebook to interact with their peers in a particular way. That is to say, don’t make your part of Facebook into an exclusive club.

3. Always look for ways to pull people out of the lobster trap and into the greater connective commons. Use Facebook as an entry point into other, more broadly connective media, never the other way around.

4. Never develop content only for Facebook. This is a corollary of #1, but warrants emphasis.

5. Always work to make your network’s social maps more generally visible. In other words, one of Facebook’s strong features is being able to meet friends of friends. In the case of your networks, don’t let Facebook be the only place that happens.

6. Never confuse Facebook with the social networks off of which it feeds. For example, don’t name your social networking projects after Facebook or other media. Name them after the groups of stakeholders you are trying to empower.

7. Always be especially disciplined in your thinking where peer pressure is at work. Keep in mind how you are influencing people by virtue of the connections you’re fostering.

Facebook is basically designed like a lobster trap with your friends as bait.

17th century protest poem

They hang the man, and flog the woman,
That steals the goose from off the common;
But let the greater villain loose,
That steals the common from the goose.

f you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
Okay
Okay

If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
Every time I think you say
It’s time for us to go our way
I say wait another day

If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
Got a letter that did say
That the kid had passed away
And everything it didn’t say

If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
The time has got me in its sway
Though I’d like to ride away
I will wait another day

If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
If you wait another day
I will wait a day
