Facebook: Personal Friend Sharing Network
Google+: Public/Private Friend/Acquaintance Collecting Network
Twitter: Random Public Thoughts and Opinions Personal Timelines

Google+ far surpasses Twitter in user action range, but Twitter has a distinct and lovely character for the quaint at heart, and maintains its distinct vertical linear presentation. Temporal clarity is a great asset. At best I find Twitter like the modern Personal Newspaper live channel, and only the Headlines from all your sources. At best it's a few other things as well, but they should experiment more with sophisticated filtering, classification, and the visual representation of timelines.

Facebook is well-suited to small communities and isolated misfits. I fall into the second category, and Facebook gives me the faintest community, as between childhood friends who never totally forgot each other. It's nice but also still a very lonely place for some people. Maybe it's up to the community, and the not Facebook orchestra, to use the offered social platform tools for their maximal envisioned potential. Can we think up some Facebook "Community Games" to try? Some of those games will be experimental speaking/sharing spaces. We need new Community Grounds. First topics may include: Should people trust online social network providers to protect their communities and privacy from attackers, invaders, and unelected law enforcement? The Face may someday be a video broadcast of our actual face, and maybe someday "Facebook" will allow communities to adapt their own preferred names for the service. If people were to adopt it, Facebook may need the concept of "Community"—collective online friendship, possibly self-organized by schoolmates and classrooms, original and overall shared context, etc. but I think the groups behaviour can be used for this. Do people even want to belong to a large public community? Do they want to meet in person and share their views and ideas instead? Do they feel great with the level of personal engagement they get in life and does Facebook fill a niche of each day perfectly right now?

Since we have been willing to put immense amounts of our time into these services already, we might as well start talking about how we can use them better to respond to some of the fears and outlooks a lot of us are beginning to hold in common.

I also think that Platform Staff will need to step in at some point soon and begin listening better to the needs expressed by online communities. They should take the approach of full transparency and honesty in the planning/development process, and make it clear what their interests and plans are in developing the services that we use to stitch our webs of social broadcast and peer discovery, store our life records and digital memories, and look for connection with other humans in times when we're unable or unwilling to see people face-to-face because of whatever social outcomes of the past century. Or in other words I should go to bed now.

Social media sites make an attempt to connect you,

They isolate you somewhat by not allowing you to see whose screens your content appeared on, and by limiting the ways you can communicate to each other privately, --

At the very least people should be able to acknowledge your public posts privately, and easily, --

But I also recognize that these tools are presented to the masses from a particular collective vision of what good they can do, which must be agreed on and implemented by the platform engineers. Their ideas might not suit the majority of people perfectly, at least not at the level of actual community and personal needs. However, I believe it has a lot to do with a lack of agreement about what it is people need. Lack of agreement usually only comes about through [<poorly calibrated> collaboration] ---- either people are not taking the right approach, or simply not using the right words, and they get sidetracked immediately from [making progress on major social issues] and on developing revolutionary ways to build anew atop the technologies available.

Since people are so invested in Facebook, Google+, and other stuff, I think they need to start thinking about the spirit in which the tools are offered, how they're intended to be used, what vision the engineers extend to us through these tools, and do we accept that vision? Do we need more, or something else? Time is passing and I want people to take seriously the question of where they invest their attention and [<corroborate> their lives online].
