Over the last week I have been asking myself “How Much Social is Too Much?”
Between Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Pownce, LiveJournal, LinkedIn and all the other social networks I am part of as well as my RSS feeds where do it end? Some days I feel like keeping up with all of it is a second job. Friends and Family on IM and everything else seems to much.
How much is too connected? Maybe the answer will never be found. When should we disconnect? I know that I will be taking a full 3 week break this year. I think I will be blogging/microblogging on a limited basis but other then that I will be out of communication with my “Social”. I can understand why the professional bloggers live a one way communication method. I can’t imagine what it would be like to try to keep up with thousands or hundreds of thousands of people at a time.
I can say that the thought process of MicroBlogging makes things easier. Short and sweet and tracking those I want to! Its to bad that only a small subset of people I know use it. I do also use it for several short updates a day. That helps and those who read this blog can get those updates here on the right hand side of the page.
I know there are several all in one places that are being built but we will see how that pans out over the next 6 months or so.
