Suffering from a social media overload? Mashable gives us 5 great tips:

  3. Try a Power Hour: Compressing all response-related work into pre-determined time blocks.
  4. Don't Hoard Urgent Work: Challenge yourself to delegate!
  5. Reduce Levels of "Insecurity Work:" Checking your twitter followers and bank account balance may make you feel secure, but fail to stimulate new ideas.
