Who Has Time for Social Media?

Okay, I get it. Everybody has a Facebook site now. I’ve already heard it said it’s for “old people”. And LinkedIn is for professionals to use for networking. Twitter is pointing people to blogs and websites on every corner of the globe talking about everything imaginable. A lot of this content is extremely good, some, not so much. There are a lot of very good writers, experts in their fields and gurus tapping away at their keyboards filling us with our insatiable need for information. So who has time for social media? Well right now, unfortunately, I do. And it’s still not enough time to keep up.

I have been spending the better part of the last 2 months in my home office, pushing the limits to what my eyes can take, reading, researching, bookmarking (yeah that looks like an article I need to read let me bookmark it for later) and tweeting. And I’ve done this all  in the pursuit of understanding where and what social media is and where it is headed. And what it holds for me.

Are people spending hours at their desks checking their Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn sites? Are they reading their favorite blogs? If so, who’s minding the store? All this content is being pushed around, and I am wondering who is reading it? Well I guess since the unemployment rate is in the 10 percent range, there’s a whole lot of people. Besides me, that is.

When I initially began thinking about this post, the title question was rhetorical. But I guess I really would like to hear some answers. Where do you find time for all this information? Comments?

    Only an old guy would ask that question. Wanna be young? Turn it around
