I think to be effective in life we all really need filters to keep the distractions to a allowable minimum. Social media by it’s nature can devolve into a magnificent time suck that can overwhelm you with minutia.
Goodbye to those who follow everybody back but use 3rd party systems like Tweetdeck to “filter out” the people they don’t really want to see. I’m not interested in being a placeholder for you anymore. Why not publicly own up about who you find valuable? Do that and we won’t even need #followfriday anymore! All I’ll have to do is check out the people you’re following to see who you endorse. Isn’t that a cool idea? (via seth simonds)
At the moment I’m a practitioner of anti-social networking which means that if the noise your producing doesn’t add value to my life you get cut off.
How do you keep from getting overwhelmed by the new media din?
