Too Many Social Tools!

March 28, 2010

After meeting so many great people at SXSW, its time to now stay connected and send a few follow up messages…

With the handful of business cards I have I now go through deciding to add people on: Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, E-mail Contacts, Foursquare, Gowalla, Google Buzz, subscribe to their blog, find their Delicious Bookmarks… see where I’m heading?

How many more social applications can we add, before we begin to combine/simplify the platforms?

What if my social norm of adding casual acquaintances on Facebook doesn’t match other’s who only want their FB for close family and friends?

Should I send him a Linked In message, or follow up with an E-mail? Do people use phone calls anymore, or is that too forward? What about a text message, is that too personal? I guess I could send a DM on Twitter, but that goes to their phone too…

Is anyone else overwhelmed with all the tools?
