Social Media overload

Uncle! I am crying “Uncle”. How much time can one person spend on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Blogs, …?? It seems that almost all of my spare time lately has been spent on my laptop – poking and proding social networking sites, reading blog posts, skimming articles about social media marketing and tweeting. Well, I’m tired of it – are you? I realized that there are so many words out there, but not that many different things being said. Look at tweets about social media or marketing and you will see many links to many articles saying the same stuff as well as many tweets actually just re-tweeting each other.
So, I’m taking a break. I will probably keep putting out a few tweets – but write things from my own head, not just send along someone else’s thoughts (we’ll see if that can work) – at least for a while. I also can’t break my ties with linkedin, as I am in a job search and that is a key resource for me.
Do you think too much is being written about social media marketing? Is it all starting to sound the same? Does most of it just feel like common sense to you too?
