Social Media Tips

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.
