By now, you've noticed the blog has been really sparse in terms of regular updates. I hope you have seen the scrolling window to the right --> with updates fed from my Facebook page. There are always several updates per day there.
My question for all with a focus on people using social media for business is whether you find the same redundancy I now see. I use my Facebook status pretty much like Twitter with quick bits of information, links and charts. Further, it gets sent over to my LinkedIn account for even wider distribution.
I get the feeling this kind of communication is saturating intended targets making it all less valuable. Personally, I do not follow anyone on Twitter. Most of the time they reference links to stories which I do not have time to read. Or, they tweet so much that I have to sit there watching a live data feed to keep up. Nobody with a job has time for that.
Oh, and I am talking about just following one person. What if I follow the hundreds that I see many others follow. Noise, noise, noise.
I like doing the Facebook updates although I am also guilty sometimes of posting links. But I do post charts and I do make quick market comments (such as yesterday's "oil services stocks look sickly.")
Let me know how I can interact with all of you so it is not 1) boring or 2) noise. Keep in mind that I am not going to cannibalize my pay service to do it.
