On this Facebook/Twitter LiveJournal crosspost thingie - the funcrunch files
Sep. 3rd, 2010 09:34 am On this Facebook/Twitter LiveJournal crosspost thingie
A number of my friends are concerned about the new feature that allows people to cross-post comments on friends-locked (or public) entries to Facebook or Twitter. While doing so won't reveal the contents of the original post if it's not public, I can still understand the concern. It should go without saying that I would never intentionally publicly post a comment to a friends-locked entry, and I would expect everyone who has access to my journal to behave the same way. Just basic manners.
I have a permanent account on LiveJournal and am not going anywhere. For those of you who are jumping ship to Dreamwidth, my account over there is also funcrunch, if you'd like to give me reading access. I don't plan to cross-post LJ entries there anytime soon though, and prefer to spend most of my blog reading time here on LJ (or in Google Reader for non-LJ blogs that have feeds).
P.S. Cross-posting and pingbacks are two entirely separate things. Pingbacks just show who has linked to your journal, and you can turn this feature off if you don't want it.
