There's a drumming inside my head ...and it's social media

I have just returned from just under three weeks away.  I had a great time travelling around the States.  And as I always do when I am on holiday, I take my blackberry but I turn off data roaming. No e-mail, no Twitter, no Facebook.... and definitely no logging on to free wifi ..nothing.  And it was soooo liberating.

Now don't get me wrong - I am a huge fan of social media and you'll regularly find me tweeting away, 'working' LinkedIn and checking in on Foursquare.  But just recently I have begun to think about all the 'noise' and how incredibly disciplined you have to be. If I log onto Twitter, there are so many genuinely interesting articles/links that people are sharing that are relevant to my world that I could spend literally all day reading them.  I get weekly LinkedIn group updates in my in box - sometimes I just have to grit my teeth and ignore them - and then stress in case I have missed anything  important. And, because we are in the PR business and need to keep abreast of all new developments, I have also been playing around with Google +.

So now I have the drumming back inside my head - what have I missed, what have I missed, what have I missed.

I think it's time to go and have a drink and try to forget. But obviously I'll check in on Foursquare in case you want to join me 🙂
