Stop Bothering Me! The Cure to Common Social Media Distractions

Whether you’re on Twitter, HootSuite managing your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, or almost any other network, you will be presented with your connections latest updates, many of which include links to blogs, videos, podcasts, or other media. These things, while sometimes educational, can become a huge distraction when you find yourself wandering from blog posts to YouTube and then back again.

So how do you manage not becoming consumed by the links your connections share? One of the reasons we want to go to those links when we see them is because we feel like we will forget about them later and not find them again. So the solution is simply bookmarking them until later.

Instapaper is a great solution for this. You simply sign up for an account and put a little bookmarklet on your browser that says Read Later. Then, whenever you click on one of those links from your connections, you can click on that Read Later bookmarklet and it will be quickly saved to your Instapaper account for future reading.

The circles (no more strangers)

It’s so tempting to seek out more strangers.

More strangers to pitch your business, your candidate, your non-profit, your blog… More strangers means more upside and not so much downside. It means growth.

The problem is that strangers are difficult to convert. And the other problem is that they’re expensive to reach. And the hardest problem is that we’re running out of strangers.

However, on Twitter there are just five degrees of separation between you and almost everybody else on the social media platform. Leer más “On Twitter, Almost Everyone Is Five Friends Apart”
