500 BigAdmin Fans on Facebook

When I was entering the work force we had to endure the unimaginable hardship of showing up to work at a preset time. Like 8:00 am or something. We didn't get to choose that time, either. The company chose. They didn't even conduct a poll! It was barbaric.

Things have changed a bit since then. Because we're judged by our results instead of our work habits, it's no wonder that some of us have come to blend our personal interests with our professional interests. In the past we were only allowed to do that while standing around a contraption called a "water cooler." We used to have to draw our water from those things before somebody figured out how to mold plastic into a container shaped like a water bottle.

For those of you who take a stroll or two in the direction of Facebook during the workday, BigAdmin has created a Facebook page. If you become a fan, as over 500 of you already have, BigAdmin content can come to you. Either as individual postings or as RSS feeds. Just enter "BigAdmin" in the Search box at the top right of your Facebook page, and it'll take you to the right place. You can also get there by clicking on the small "F" icon just to the left of the BigAdmin search box.

While you're there, you'll notice a Twitter "t." BigAdmin is also on Twitter, but you have to skip the second "i," like this: BigAdmn.

I don't remember where I heard it, but I heard Facebook referred to as "social not-working." Don't worry, those are the same people who used to rush by the water cooler looking all busy-body with the racing form attached to their clipboard.

Follow Us on Twitter, Become a Fan on Facebook

You can now follow BigAdmin on Twitter and become a fan of BigAdmin on Facebook.

Personally, I objected to Twitter on principle when I first heard of it. I thought our attention span --hang on a sec the phone's ringing-- was already being --wow, that was a deer standing on the hood of my car-- splintered enough already by the incessant --damn, I forgot to update my wiki-- multi-tasking that has become a way of life for anybody in high tech.

But Constance our Content Manager/Editor, convinced me to look into it. She loves it, and twitters almost every day. I was surprised by the amount of good information that gets passed around. If you have any partitions left in your brain, check it out.

I only recently jumped on Facebook. I think my kids got me into it. Now I hang out there a few evenings a week. It's pretty cool. If you don't mind mixing some business in with your personal life, become a fan of BigAdmin. (I did.) So far we're just posting links to the new content on BiAdmin as we publish it, but you never know. If you'd like to see more, let us know.

You'll notice two small glyphs at the top right of the MOTD box on the BigAdmin home page, one for Twitter and one for Facebook.

So if you don't want to join us now, you can join us later.
