So much of social media is based on tiny, seemingly insignificant nuances between apparently identical entities. That’s a long way of saying that sometimes apples vs. apples is actually Golden Delicious vs. Granny Smith.
So how’s a person to understand the diff between the Facebook/MySpace, Tumblr/Posterous, WordPress/Movable Types of the social media world? Test drive to see which thrives in your personal socmedia lifestyle.
And that’s why I’m blogging this via Posterous, but then cross-posting it everywhere else I’m concurrently test-driving. That’s the only real way to separate winners from losers—or apples…from other varieties of apples.
