Last week, I created a Kikolani Facebook Page to see the difference between having a Page or a NetworkedBlog in terms of growing reader base. This week, there is news that Facebook is redesigning the Pages to be like regular profiles. It’s not that I do not like change, but I was a fan of the fact that the Pages had a different style, which kept the separation between professional and personal more defined. The more personal profile style is supposed to have the benefit of showing in fans’ News Feed. The downside is the updates to the Pages must be done more consistently to remain fresh, whereas the Pages allowed for more of a static presence. For those of you who have, or are fans of Pages, what do you think? Do you like the change, or wish it would remain as it is?
I have already started uploading videos to my new account, Leilaniana @ Youtube, including a first video inside the hummingbird’s nest in relation to the recent hummingbird photo and haiku post. I have also added to the collection a few highlights from the Dancing with the Stars tour in 2006 and some footage of a manta ray in the aquarium at Caesar’s Palace.
