Facebook & Twitter have some of the worst landing pages on the web.
At least if you look at it from a search engine perspective, who should assume that every visitor isn’t a member of the site they are referencing in the search engine.

Leo Laporte seems a little upset with Google Buzz & Twitter – actually social media in general – to be honest in many ways I agree with him – if conversation happens for lesser mortals like me it is because I have reached out and actively looked for conversation engaging with others.
