Is there really a need to share EVERYTHING on all your social networks?

  • I do not need to know each time you check in on Foursquare, especially when there’s nothing personal added to your update or you’re checking in at Walmart.
  • I do not need to know each song that you listen to on Spotify.
  • I do know need to know each time you “favorite” a video on YouTube.
  • I do not need to see your same update on Twitter and Facebook and Google+. The networks are different for a reason. Use them differently.

Don’t connect all of your social networks together just to push out information. There’s nothing social about that.

    It’s great to share youtube videos, but write a tweet and tell me why you are sharing it and why I should open it. Along the same lines “I posted a photo http://www.twitpic.com/blahblah” You posted a photo? Do you want me to clap? and “I blogged: andabigunshortedbloglink.com/here”. You want me to click that? Why should I? You want me to reshare it? Take the time to shorten the URL so I don’t have to.
