Social Media Activity Triage


Find new to us house. Make offer on house. Offer accepted. List old house. Sell old house. Move all stuff to new to us house.

Those 6 sentences sum up almost every minute of my free time since early March, 2012. Life has been busy and hectic for me as I am sure it has been for you.

I have noticed that in the last four months I have had to triage my social media activity. This is how it sorted out.

First to go … Google+. My network their is the smallest and posting and engaging their was always an after thought. Although I remain very interested in how I might use hangouts for education it might be tough to engage in Google+ seriously, if ever.

Next to go … Facebook status updates. I still cruise facebook for news and activities from friends and family, but the frequency of my personal and page status updates has dropped off steadily since April.

Blog posts … so many ideas, so little time to write. I have enough blog post ideas to write 3x a day, every day. What I need is some sort of device to extract those posts from my brain, edit them, add an image, and schedule them to post.

Cruising Facebook … during a couple week period of the biggest time crunch I was spending a lot less time on Facebook which can be akin to channel surfing.

Always time for Twitter my first love in Social Media. Much of my online/social network activity came after I started using Twitter. I still find it to be the easiest and quickest way to share an idea, find a resource, connect with a colleague, or discover something of interest to me.
