In all the passion I have for social media and social networking I was not being too considerate of the impact my feeds have on other people.
I thought it was cool and good to interconnect all my web tools. In particular I linked up Friendfeed, Delicious, Flickr, Twitter and Facebook to name a few. I have been skimming the surface of social media and not concentrating on their specific uses.
I started to realise that some FB friends were hiding me or de friending me and later re-friending me with an explanation why they dropped me off FB. The main reason was because my tweets were dominating their pages too much. I am going to maintain all the threading of web tools in Me Edna. I have deactivated friendfeed and twitter, delicious… from my Facebook. I will keep the Notes – feeds from my running blog.
So no more web skimming.
I will use Twitter for professional development, some connecting and gathering web content. I will use Facebook for more social connections with friends and runners who don’t want to be bothered in all the other things that interest me.
