Sarah Wurrey invited me to be a panelist on the Roundtable Podcast with her and her co-host (and new host) Jen Zingsheim. On the podcast we talked about socnet overload, social media and philanthropy, and measurement tools. You can listen to it here. Afterward I was thinking about social networking and overload and we all have that problem. We're focused on email and bacn and things that *should* be done but when it gets so overwhelming you don't know where to start, it's time to rethink what we're doing. We're responsible for creating our own filters and we need to make sure that we don't have a filter problem. If you do, find a way to resolve the situation. If you need help and advice getting things under control, may I recommend a virtual assistant? ;)
Also, I think that social networks should find their niche and appeal to it in a very useful away. We shouldn't overwhelm individuals and businesses that are new to social media with every social network out there. If you know someone who is just getting used to the space, make sure you get to know their interests and then suggest one social network to get them started.
It was Sarah's last podcast before moving to the beautiful D.C. area. We'll miss her here in New England and hope she comes back to visit very very soon!
