Planning Your Social Media

You don’t want to have to do this:

The map of my social media

This is a map of most of my social media connections, blogs, tumblrs, facepluses and so on.  Most.  They all feed into each other in different ways – and managing that after the fact is a huge pain in the ass.

As it stands, Facebook is the terminal node for a lot of aggregation – which isn’t necessarily a good thing.

But I didn’t want to just dump all the feeds into Facebook willy-nilly.  And I wanted people to be able to interact with different parts of the streams as they wanted, without any issues.

So this is what I came up with.  Mostly, things are managed through twitterfeed, RSSGraffiti on Facebook, and the occasional e-mail post (like the LJ stuff I was working on Sunday).

Sure, I have more discrete projects than most people.  But you gotta watch now, so you don’t get taken by surprise later.
