I recently read an article from Chris Pirillo that asked "How much social networking is too much?" At the time I was also preparing slides for a presentation I am giving on Social Media this week. As I looked at the slides I realised just how many social networking sites I have joined.
In his article Chris said "There comes a point where we have to decide enough is enough and eradicate the extra noise. When it becomes impossible to hear and be heard, you know you’ve stretched yourself a little too thin. Pare it down, folks. You don’t need to be everywhere in order to make a difference in this world. You simply need to somewhere."
All of this caused me to reflect on my Social Media Presence. This is where I will be:
Blogger - Essential for my blogging.
Evernote - My virtual notebook where I store and share all sorts of things.
Facebook - I joined to connect with family and friends and I use it (reluctantly) to connect with the genealogy community. I would rather not use it for genealogy but while others insist on using it I will stay there.
Google+ - My social media communication and collaboration tool of choice.
Librarything - I love this tool for managing my reading life and remembering for me what I have read.
LinkedIn - I'll maintain my presence here as it is good to keep in contact with former business contacts.
The Old Reader - My new (to me) RSS feed reader.
Twitter - I have quietened down on Twitter but it is the tool I turn to when at an event and I have something to share
Youtube - A home for the few videos I have made.
I have numerous other accounts and will try new tools as they appear but the above are enough to keep this old girl busy.
Where will you be?
