Your online home


There is a growing battle for your place online. Facebook wants to be your home. Google (Profiles) wants to be your home. Twitter wants to be your home. And there are a growing number of servies that want to make you “live” on their page:

http://flavors.me/
http://about.me/
Or register yourname.me at http://twit.hover.com/

Of course people like me are smart or lucky and we bought our “NAME” jonathonsciola.com and we control our own domain. But what about David Chen or John Smith or you? How do you buy your name, and create your own home online?

Business people tend to use Plaxo or Linked in, however there are arguments that Foursquare or Twitter are better “homes” than those networking sites.

My advice for now is that your email is your home, as all of the above services require one. So make sure you get your own email address from gmail or create your own like jonathon.sciola@jonathonsciola.com and enjoy
