Through Twitter, Kevin Gamble shared Jeff Tippett's guest post on Social Media Mom. Jeff answers the question: how does one can find time to use social media? He makes time because that is what he does--like making time to eat.
Social media is conversations and collaborative work.
How do you make time to converse at work, at home, or in the grocery store? You just do.
What value do you gain from conversations at work, at home, and in the grocery store? Individually, some of these may seem unimportant. Cumulatively, the conversations help connect and understand others.
Jeff also admits that he uses RSS feeds to manage information and to manage "the noise" from floods of information.
