All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms;
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Yeah. I only have the twitter app installed on facebook because I'm old school like that. I don't *believe* that my friends apps can access my feed data, though I could be wrong.

And as far as them relaying/repeating info that I post... How is that different from a normal conversation with my friends?

I rarely post stuff to facebook that isn't public. When I do its usually locked down to a select group of friends and is about a party or something.

My twitter account updates my buzz feed via google's built in functionality.

It also updates my facebook status via the twitter app for facebook. (although @replies stay on twitter, which I like)

It also updates my away message for AIM/ICQ/MSN/Jabber/gtalk/FBChat/IRC via a twitter plugin for Adium (there's probably one out there for Pidgin too).

It also updates my personal website via a little php-rss script.

It also updates my myspace status via a myspace app for twitter. (although again, @replies stay on twitter)

I can post to twitter via the standard web interface, instant message, a tiny python script I wrote (useful for liveblogging robotics projects), my cellphone (via swift twit).

I can post pictures using twitpic, or songs using

This is my giant social networking machine. It's been working pretty well thus far, as new things come out, I integrate them. I have my public feed (twitter), private feed (facebook+privacy settings w/ friend groups), and super private feed (livejournal, which isn't connected to anything).

I really can't see any added value that buzz gives my machine, but I've integrated it anyway.
