The Blog Discovers Web 2.0

Up until now, you have been enjoying up-to-the-minute news about former Maryland basketball players here on this blog. Or, in some case, 3 month old stories from poorly translated European newspapers that I just now found through Google. OK, maybe more of the latter... I don't really do "up-to-the-minute". But today, I have discovered Web 2.0. Social Media. What the kids today are doing on the Interweb tubes. Or something like that. At any rate, I'm bringing you more ways to follow the blog, in case you're having trouble remembering to stop by this website to keep up with my frenetic pace of nearly 4 or 5 posts a month.

You can now follow this blog on Twitter: @MDBballWATN. It will mostly be automatically-generated links to the blog posts plus the occasional tweet of interesting nuggets too small to warrant their own blog story. At least until I get bored of that.

The Twitter feed is also rebroadcast through Google Buzz. Any Google Buzz users out there? (*crickets chirping*) That's what I thought. Anyway, it was simple to set-up, so it's there for you if you want it.

And finally, I've set up a Facebook page to also mirror the content, if that's your Internet drug of choice. Again, it's just a rebroadcast of the blog, but hopefully it will be a convenience to some of you, or if nothing else, a place to publicly declare your allegiance to the blog (and then you can hide us from your feed if you want after telling all your friends that you "like" us).

The Twitter and Buzz feeds are working fine, but the auto-update of the Facebook page hasn't been working right. Still looking into it.
