Author Nicholas Carr coined the phrase digital sharecroppers to describe those of us who create content on Web 2.0 sites.

He says we are like sharecroppers after the Civil War — tilling land that we don't own, barely eking out a living, while someone else who owns the land, benefits.

I wrote the following comment on Small Business Trends:

I mainly use Facebook in order to connect with old and new friends. But I also use the feed from my different sources and then stream it on my Facebook page. In this way my friends could connect with me in different ways, e.g. follow me on Twitter and FriendFeed, and go to my blog now and then.

I will use Facebook for creating a type of community / fan group for our new online business venture. It will drive back traffic to our new blogs and online shops.
