Cutting through Facebook

I don’t always know what I like but I definitely do know what I DON’T like and one is wasting time.

There are many portals for social media such as Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and  MySpace (have never used or visited this site mind you), that sometimes you may have the feeling that you are out of the loop and it can be all a bit much. I like Twitter is great for short bursts of info (still getting to know the slang on this site), Tumblr for sharing images/business and LinkedIn mainly for business connections. Both are easy to use.

But I admit I prefer Facebook. I can be selective, connect with my family and friends everywhere, be socially entertained, and best yet actually gauge a relative reaction to what people are actually thinking or doing from their posts and comments.

As much time as I spend on Facebook, updating my own page and keeping up to date with numerous fashion pages/blogs, I do need great distractions elsewhere other than my field of expertise such as arts and events etc. And as much as many  of you don’t like to admit it, Facebook is good at providing a platform for all to see  in one place and engage if you want to.

So as time poor as I sometime can be Facebook lumps all my interests in one window where i can scroll and check them out.   Below I list to my current favourite Facebook shortcut pages that I like that I highly enjoy. I add and delete pages every so often, but these below are keepers for now. They speak for themselves wonderfully.

Hope you find your Facebook shortcut set.
