NEW COMM ROAD MAP: Manage your social media

Based on an audio comment and question from Doug Haslam, from Topaz Partners, the Tech PR Gems blog, PRobecast, and the Gischeleman’s Blog.

Six steps to managing your social media:

  1. Pick your tools. You can’t use all of them — or at least not all of them every day.
  2. Know when to limit your distractions.
  3. If you need a break, then give yourself some “goof-off time” and go wild (from Ben Yoskovitz at the Instigator Blog). Then, when you’re done, close off those connections and get back to more serious work.
  4. Clean up your RSS feeds
  5. Trust your network.
  6. Have a way to capture your ideas when you’re away from computer. Use a number (206) or a Jott account.
