Listening to This Week in Google (TWIG episode 3, I’m a little behind) created an “ah-ha” moment for me today. I used to always feel like I have to read every Facebook status update or Tweet that my friends post. Of course I can’t keep up, but I keep wanting to try.
They made the analogy on TWIG that Facebook status updates and Tweets are like a constantly running party. When you show up late for a party, you don’t say, “Tell me about all the conversations that I missed”. You just jump in for as much time as you have.
That takes a load off.
