At first, I didn't do much with it, but then, a few months in, a funny thing happened on the way to the Facebook forum.
It became my secondary posting site.
Whereas my tweets —eight years in, it's still tough to write that word with a serious tone— are limited to 140 characters, my Facebook posts can express more than that, even though they themselves are shorter than full blog posts, which themselves are less comprehensive than essays or articles, which, in the end, are less consequential than books (ah, but that's another, unwritten story).
So, for what it's worth, the YFGF Facebook page contains:
- Links to my current blog posts.
- Expanded tweets.
- Flickr photos.
- 'Re-gifted' Facebook posts from others.
- Beery rants.
- Short 'bloggy' posts.
- Topics not covered at the blog.
- Localized comments on the beer scene in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
