ACTing on Impulse

Continuing the slew of terrible ACT-based puns that are filling up my reading list, I'd like to blog a bit about the new Lib Dem Facebook Lite ACT social network. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it.

On the one hand, I can separate all my Lib Dem stuff away from Facebook now, and stop boring all my non-LibDem friends with Lib Demmery, and stop swamping their posts with posts from Lib Dems. OTOH, I don't see how this will help us to become less insular and reach out to people. I am aware that you don't have to be a member to join, but realistically, how many non-members are going to join?

And again, the lack of Farmville and Vampire games etc etc is a bonus, but the lack of basic functionality is annoying. I find myself agreeing with a lot of what JHSB has to say about it, but I still think it could have some use. I think that perhaps local party people who are reluctant to sign up to facebook will perhaps sign up to something with the party sign of approval.

Anyway, like Caron says, I guess we'll just have to wait and see if it makes critical mass. My profile is here; if you want to be my friend feel free to click on and add me. Oh yes, and Anders has some invaluable advice for those of you who want to sign up.

Bitter Irony

Is it just me that gets annoyed when something feminists have been saying for years gets trumpeted by Science Daily once a MALE scientist does some research (with a sample of THREE FFS) into it?

Bloody women, we're never happy, are we? We complain when the menz ignore us, and then when they shamelessly steal female research ideas and get all the credit for it listen, we complain about that too. Tch! We should all just get back in the kitchen...
