How To Manage Your Time Using Social Media
Plain and simple it is not easy. Â I have been involved in social media community management for over six years now and it is still a discipline I have to work on. Â I can compare managing a social media community to being in the center of a group and having six people talk to me at once.
In most cultures that would be considered rude because those are called interruptions. Â When I was little my parents would always simply say: “Wait your turn.” Â Not only from a manners perspective but from an organizational perspective this has always been crucial.
It really is not different for social media community managers. Â You have to give each medium its turn. Â Don’t allow them to all talk to you at once and do not allow them to interfere with other projects you have going on. Â Multitasking does not work. Â Believe me I have tried and it is a tough habit to break.
So have a beet and kale smoothie. Â Keep the open page tabs to a minimum. Â Keep that brain focused on one project at a time and see it through until completion. Â Rule your conversations. Â Don’t let them rule you.
