I just press that "Stumble" button, that's all I do. Facebook is for keeping in touch with friends you otherwise wouldn't. Snarf, take a chill pill, your opinion is skewed, and your narcissism is too much for me to handle.

Facebook, and myspace, for that matter, is for vacuous, insincere, self-esteemless sheeple who need others to define them. Stumble Upon is for those who have no need to make internet surfing a social game and who want to broaden their minds. FB and myspace are for those who are led by the corporate world and Hollywood and are told what to like, what to eat, what to wear and who to worship. SU is for individuals interested in learning more than with whom Paris has made a sex video. Socializing is what you do with PEOPLE, not with internet pages. Socializing online is for people who have a need to hide who or what they really are. My roommate is a bigot, but on myspace, she spreads love, beauty, sunshine, poetry, Mother Teresa quotes and Light with a capital L. The 90 skillion "friends" she has there are completely ignorant of her true nature. Am I an intellectual snob? Hell, yes, and I love me very much. Hence, no need to "socialize" online.

Oops! Should have reread my message before submitting... It should read: "Marty: Haven't used the SU Fb app yet."

Marty:e SU Fb app yet. Installed it and linked it to my SU account, but didn't do anything with it. Been using Plum (with the Fb app), and Spurl (adding the RSS to my main blog). The main thing I like about these is that copies of the pages are kept, along with the link. It's also what I like about the Firefox Scrapbook extension and Zotero but I prefer having those pages kept online so that I can access them from different computers. My SU experience is fairly limited but I do notice the similarities with Fb, especially with "posted items," notes, blog imports, and other sharing mechanisms. One thing I like about Fb, in terms of social bookmarking, is that I only see a few items on any day (even though I have about 250 friends with very diverse interests). Of course, the fact that I know the people who post these items is a big part of my interest in "Fb as social bookmarking." From what I could see, SU is more oriented toward building networks on people's interests instead of broadening people's interests from their networks.

@ Alexandre: Thank you for the thoughtful comment. The SU FB app does not quite do it for me. I like your ideas.

Interesting post. Noticed it on my Fb newsfeed (a friend noted this entry). Funnily enough, another friend had just invited me to use the SU app for Fb. Seems to me like Fb might in fact raise awareness of SU in some corners of the social Web. So, what about... a) Integrating SU and Fb? Granted, Fb is relatively closed. But how about a mashup-type thing? The SU app for Fb is a start but more could be done. b) SU on Open Social? c) SU integration with other bookmark/link tools such as Plum, Zotero, Google Bookmarks, Firefox Scrapbook, Spurl, Magnolia, d) SU as (nano)blogging?

@Steaprok: The chatter I hear out there in SEM land is that FB is "interruption marketing." The FB in-your-face style is rude at times. With SEARCH advertising is contextually related to QUERIES. The power, someday, will be when the social graph plays a more subtle role in returning targeted advertising. I don't like this interrupt stuff personally.
