Is it just me or is anyone else feeling overwhelmed trying to keep up with social media? Right now I’m on Facebook, Twitter, and I have this blog. I just joined Goodreads too, but I haven’t had the time to check out all it has to offer just yet.
Lately I’ve been reading articles on social networking and have been surprised to find that in addition to the sites I just mentioned, many people are on LinkedIn and Google+ in addition to some other sites I’ve never heard of. I find it extremely time consuming to think of things to say on the various sites — Twitter and this blog have been getting most of my attention lately — because many times I just don’t know what to say.
I like to read other blogs, but I rarely make comments because it takes me so long to think of something to say and then type it out so it sounds right and doesn’t make me look stupid and by that time my attention span has wavered and I just give up. It gets so time consuming that if I did it on a regular basis, I’d never have time to write.
I know I’m really bad at managing my computer time and apparently so socially inept I don’t know what to say to people, but how do you keep up with all the social media sites? And how many social media sites are you on? I’d love to hear your answers and any tips for keeping up without going crazy. 🙂
