I'm not sure I have much to add beyond what's already been said, but I want to echo the idea that social media is a replacement for blogs only for those who are already well-connected, and who are willing to either be "always on," so to speak, in their social media presences, or able to figure out some way to have two Facebook accounts or whatever.

Many people have done a great job criticizing the pernicious ways in which philosophy academia has resembled (and still resembles) an old boys' club when it comes to hiring and so on, and I don't think we want to just recreate that on Facebook by swapping out the old boys for the new tech-savvy folks of all genders.
