Thanks Alan

I very much appreciated, 
I am very keen on looking at people's habits and growing creative and  intellectual needs as all the work I create is based on co-creations..
Happy wednesday everyone

> I think one reason Fb and G+ don't work for in-depth discussions might have to do with distractions - ads, images, announcements, etc.; they're fundamentally lateral, and if one has more than a few friends, there are always notifications coming through. In other words, they're porous. This is truer for Fb (with its arcane privacy settings, etc.); G+ is quieter but more awkward to use. I think, maybe wrongly, that Fb and G+ are more push technologies - one has to weed through these, while email is pull; in addition, email buffering works well, and it's easy to save posts from a particular list - I keep all the empyre material on anguish and video, for example, in a separate readable foldable. Blogs work really well for discussion, but one approaches them differently; at least for me, their structure structures discussion. Blogs have less distraction; Fb and G+ considerably more. Of course for light chatter, there's nothing like Fb - but I find, for example, that Marc's postings sometimes get lost for me. Then there's back-channeling, private posts surrounding the email list or Fb etc. discussion - epistemologically, messaging in Fb and G+ are inherently different than the newsfeed, while elists and private emails share the same phenomenology.
