How Much Microblogging Is Too Much?

by Jason Falls |

My periodic Utterz on the way to work produced a question on Tuesday that I thought would make for good discussion here. I recorded my thoughts and the question in a Seesmic post Tuesday evening.

If you don’t have time to watch the video, I am essentially wondering how much microblogging is too much for you. Do you use Twitter? Do you use Jaiku? How about Utterz? Seesmic is a video version of microblogging. Are you there?

In addition to the Facebooks and MySpaces of the world, social media users are inundated with options for their time. People love to sign up for the latest thing, but who has enough hours in a day to keep up with more than two? Three? More?

It’s my job to play with social media tools, to understand them and the communities around them, so I have to juggle a lot of community commitments. But what about you? Where do you spend your time? How many communities are you a part of? How do you manage that time and how much more can you handle without dropping the ball elsewhere?

Please discuss in the comments. And everyone leave your profile links on Twitter, Jaiku, Utterz, Seesmic and others. I’d love to introduce members of my circles in one tool to members on another and vice-versa.

You can find me on Twitter, Utterz and Seesmic, among others.
