Your social media use may also require management. I have tried to manage my virtual identity within the various groups I belong to such as blog or groups on Facebook or Linkedin. Let me share with you few of my steps to manage/ organize myself.
1. I first categorized various work areas related to me not only in work place but also related to my other activities. I categorized my online work according to different groups:
- Socializing groups
- Business Groups
- Knowledge Sharing groups
(Note: never mix them with each other or it may have serious after effects)
2. Then for each group I mention tasks I must perform, their date of completion, and their status and priority. These are all noted in a tabular format
This is very important as you need to maintain your presence in your social media groups. If your virtual presence is business-related then I suggest you plan out your strategy to attract the exact kind of group to your profile.
3. Then I maintain separate spread sheets (excel , MIS or any thing you find easy to use) to note down important point or suggestion related to your respective group, which may help you in future.
