I lost to facebook

I started putting the full text of my blog entries in Facebook, instead of small enticing summaries.

It took me several years to come to this. I am not a big fan of Facebook, and I shudder at the idea that for some people Facebook is Internet. This is why I only posted links at first, and annotated links later. Well, now I understand that after changing two languages and two cities I am not in the position to lure people away :) I like reading blogs in my RSS-client, and people like reading them in Facebook.

Ironically I have always disliked the websites which do the same with their Atom/RSS feeds: putting only a summary in it instead of the full text. I have even programmed some means to work around this. Though our motivation is different, because the websites just want more visits for more ads impressions, while I just think that Facebook is Evil.
