New Year’s Resolutions in a Social Networking Age

  1. I will not join any more LinkedIn groups, unless I plan to read those self-serving e-mailings from fellow members.
  2. I will not look at Facebook more than twice a day.
  3. I will “de-friend” people who write only about how tired they are.
  4. I will find out why anyone (lacking criminal intent) would follow my tweets.
  5. I will question the professional credentials of those who have the time to build social networks of more than 500 people.

    Dear Judi,
    I enjoyed your post, but sense a feeling of ambivalence on your part regarding social networking. I confess to no wavering. I love Facebook for it has enabled me to update my grown children about my doings without having to pick up the phone. (Though one daughter did get irate when she learned of a car accident on Twitter and not in a personal phone call.) And Faceback has enabled my finding you! It will be my pleasure to witness your continuing business success.
    Wishing you a Happy New Year,

    I appreciate facebook for the same personal and social reasons you do. Not yet convinced about LinkedIn, and Twitter seems to work only for very special applications. Great to hear from you.
