My relationship with social media has always been sort of a love hate relationship. I love what facebook and twitter allow me to do in connecting with friends, family, acquaintances, but I have a real problem. As useful as these tools are, I have really grown to hate all of the noise that social media gives me. The one thing that has really been missing in my opinion is a volume button. Sometimes I just want to turn down the volume on those people who are constantly talking about their cats maybe even mute them, but always have the option to turn their volume back up just in case.In this weeks Tech Tip I?m sharing with you a new social service that not only let?s me control the volume of my social stream but control just how loud I?m talking and who I?m talking to.
I like to think of myself as a "Tech Filter". Your coffee filter ensures that you don't get coffee grinds in your mouth when you drink your morning cup of joe, your oil filter keeps your car from getting junk into your engine etc. As a tech filter I make sure that you get your fill of the good stuff from the web without all the junk. I share my discoveries each week in a 3-5 minute video podcast at www.TechTipTuesday.com
