Over the recent Thanksgiving holiday, we were reminded about how big a role social media plays in our daily lives. We were also reminded how easily it can be to feel overwhelmed by social media – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and much, much more. It’s a good time to take stock of your use of social media and try to control it before it controls you. In this episode we discuss being overwhelmed by social media, ways to manage social media and whether you can move past the sense of guilt you probably feel for not posting enough.
