Food For Thought by Joel | Jul 18, 2011 | Comics | 8 comments 8 Comments thecheckeredman on July 18, 2011 at 4:23 pm See Joel…this is why I hesitate to jump too far into social networking! =oD Joel on July 18, 2011 at 4:41 pm I don’t find it too bad. I focus most of my time on Twitter and Google+ these days. I have everything else tied together, so it doesn’t take a lot of effort to post across networks. Foxlore on July 18, 2011 at 9:15 pm The first week was fun, but it seems to be slowly starting to shift over more closely to the likes of Twitter and Facebook. I am still very hopeful for ‘hangouts’ thought. Allot of potential there if they implement the correct tools/functions. Joel on July 19, 2011 at 9:21 am I agree, I think Hangouts have some real potential. I keep meaning to schedule and execute a sketching hangout to test the lag and see if I can get the camera pointed at my drawing table to work with it. I’ll be sure to put it up on Twitter when I do. I know what you mean about the shift. As more and more people join, they bring the noise that we all left behind in Facebook. Even some prominent people I follow and really enjoy have jumped on the animated GIF band wagon. *groan* One thing I do really like about Google+ is that I don’t have to follow everyone back. It’s a lot like Twitter in that way. I can still see what my followers are saying in the “Incoming” stream if I want. Andrew Jones on July 19, 2011 at 6:59 pm Ha! Seems Google+ is hard to resist doing a strip about. I just did one this week, too. Joel on July 19, 2011 at 7:04 pm Social media and dating overlap so nicely! Also, with webcomics I love taking the opportunity to be topical. It gives me a bit of a break from my regular subject matter too. Binky on July 21, 2011 at 4:25 pm I guess we all need our 15 seconds of fame. Joel on July 21, 2011 at 4:36 pm More like 5 seconds. Over and over and over and over.
