Tips for Managing Social Media Burnout



Great tips from the Nonprofit Tech 2.0 blog on avoiding social media burnout (some of which I could use, boy howdy). The tips are:

  1. Don’t update your organization’s profiles on the weekend.
  2. Pick a time to quit in the evening and stick to it.
  3. Pick one social networking profile and keep it entirely for fun and your personal life.
  4. Sometimes just leave the smartphone at home.
  5. Take time for lunch.
  6. Breathe, exercise, and treat yourself. Seriously.
  7. Make time to connect with friends… in person or over the phone!
  8. Ignore, block, and delete grumpy, mean people.
  9. Stay focused on the Good.
  10. Make sure your work is appreciated by the higher ups in your organization.

    Wow, David, thanks for this! I hit my burnout point earlier this week and had to just take a break. It’s good to take a break sometimes, even for a day, to get back to basics.

    Awesome advice! I have to agree with everything you say here, building a community online is about more than just making money. If you do your job right then the money will come, but it should never be 1st priority.
