Oh look at the pretty shiny sparkly new thing. What is it this week Pinterest?
I get bombarded and I mean bombarded with new and different sites platforms tools interfaces apps and stuff all the time.
So how do I filter all the stuff?
Here is the better question. How do YOU filter it all?
What’s really worth your time? Where should you focus? What do I use daily?
Well let me help you with a complete “Duke Long ” breakdown.
Too Too Much?
Pinterest: is for wedding planners and potential brides to show everyone their bad taste.
Foursquare: is letting some one who you think cares find out where you waste a lot of time.
Quora: is for people who use questions as an art form of bullshit and pitching.
Twitter: A complete waste of time except for conversations, connections,research, timely business news and pics of my daughters swim meets.
Reddit: They say social news I say Twitter.
Posterous: was the first site I used for blogging. The name is Posterous and sooooo…. I don’t use it anymore.
LinkedIn: Is there any other place you have your job history,groups of interest, conversations and business connections? Me either!
Facebook: is for my mom to get on a see what she and her friends grand children are doing. Period. Oh yea I don’t have an account so how would I know. It did help me win a video contest
Tumblr: Wasn’t it Pinterest before Pinterest was Pinterest?
WordPress: Are you kidding? Some where at some time I said I would kiss the founders on the lips in a manly way!
Google+: is another place to post my blog posts. But I am not staying away because there is too much potential.
Evernote: OMG! Pure Genius!
Tweetdeck: is on all the time as in it’s on every device I use and on all the time.
Google Mobile Navigation: like I really need directions to Giordano’s. Ok, I do get lost in other cities.
Youtube: seriously how many times can I watch myself? Apparently quite a few. Refresh Refresh Refresh!
I use WordPress LinkedIN Youtube Twitter and email to do my online “business” and it seems to be working pretty well.
I am my own filter. I don’t need distraction. I don’t waste time and ……
Quit wasting time with the shiny new things and FOCUS!
Thoughts comments and blatant ass kissing are always appreciated.
