Why Developers Hate the Facebook Wall-to-Wall

Begining of November we wrote a post arguing that Facebook could be used in the educational whereabouts. Why we hate the Facebook wall? Well, not really. What we wanted to to was attract your attention and get you to read an interesting post on this topic and first published

We also had (still have) an account in that was part of our first steps in the blogging arena and we kind of agree with Singopolyma, that wasn't a place to stay, we even had, prior to this unused account, x-journal, that closed down a while now. We loved the last part of his post and under Creative Commons atribuition, we reproduce the last two paragraphs of Singopolyma's Microblogging: The open Wall

"Now think of microblogging. Think of how you use it. Yes, there's a publication aspect to it for sure (I say what I want people to hear). There is also, however, this element of public conversation people seem so interested in. Back-and-forth between two or more people, on their own pages, archived publicly.

What's even better about this realization? I hated the Xanga comments, I hate the Facebook wall (and their new 'comment on status' feature), but I love @replies. So it wasn't the concept of public conversations I wasn't getting, but merely an implementation detail. @replies are piped through a good notification system (which for Twitter these days involved scraping a feed and re-posting it to a fake account so that I can get them via IM) so that they can be near-real-time when I have time, and are still there for me if I don't."

Thanks to Stephen Paul Weber, an expert on Web development, Desktop scripting, Linux, FLOSS, Creative Commons, and reading we've discovered the and the good use @ replies in Twitter.
