I hear this quite a bit, "Gosh, Mike, you have pretty much joined everything, haven't you?" Of course these people are referring to social networks, micro blogs, you get the idea. The answer to that is always, "Can't help it.". I'm always trying to find that right formula for posting in a new web environment. I think a lot of people are. So out of all those hundreds of services, what am I using, and what has found the trash heap (for now)?
Posterous account and my own picture posting Tumblr page. When I Digg something, it relays back to the mobile site, but there's a handy link to it in my blog.
Of course there's Facebook, but that's another topic for another time...maybe.
That's it. It all runs together. If I take a picture on my phone, I email it to Posterous which sends to Flickr, those Tumblr pages, and to my Facebook News Feed. When I post a new blog entry, it feeds to my Twitter via Twitterfeed, posts to my mobile Tumblr page, and to my Facebook notes.
So there is some redundancy, but it is well thought out. It's too easy to get a Ping or HelloTXT account and just dump everything you say, think, photograph, video, reply, comment, but how tired can that get if you follow people on multiple accounts? Pretty tired. That's my biggest annoyance when it comes to these networks being tied in together and my biggest point of advice to anyone on these social networking sites.
Keep It Simple, Superuser. Don't post everything everywhere.
In time who knows, I do know that it will need to pass two tests. It needs to work well with the blog, and it has to work well with my other services, seamlessly.
So what am I missing? What should I be using? What are you using? I'd love to know!
