I don’t know how some people do it. There’s Facebook, Twitter, Pin It, Stumble this, Digg that. I get dizzy just thinking about all the different platforms people use to connect with others. Then there are programs to help deal with them, but even that looks confusing. I can’t imagine logging into every single one, every single day, and being a productive contact. I do keep up with Facebook and Twitter a few times per day, but even that is plagued with confusion.
Take today for example. I read an article that suggested you follow all of your followers while building your contacts as a sign of good manners. So I head on over to Twitter, click on my followers, and what do you know — there’s a ton of them I’m not following. So I go through the list and click them all, only to return to the home page and find that Twitter has automatically made me unfollow people. Then I find out there is a limit to how many people you can follow and unfollow in a day. How am I supposed to keep all of this straight? What if I just followed the person that will inform me of the start of the zombie apocalypse, and Twitter takes them away!??!
I’m not computer-challenged by any means, but this many rules, guidelines, and websites can make a person dizzy. I feel like I need an assistant for my assistant just to deal with social media.
How do you manage your social media?
