During a day I will end up reading or skimming over 800+ posts just in my RSS reader. That doesn’t take into account any of my Twitter activity or Buzz reading or even email. In my normal work week of Sunday to Saturday this means I have at some point skimmed or read a minimum of 5600 posts of which anywhere from 25 percent t0 40 percent ( a rough estimate given how the feeds are separated in FeedDemon) are social media or social web related.
This amounts to a minimum of 1,400 posts and you know what …. increasingly they are becoming repetitive regurgitation of that same old crap, not to mention boring as fuck.
Blah blah blah – that’s all is seems to be anymore (of course some will say it’s always been this way but I like to give the benefit of the doubt). It might be stupid ass puff pieces that have absolutely nothing to do with social media but because it mentions Twitter it is given 200 words and gets thousands of ReTweets. Or it could be the never ending – and mind numbing – analysis of yet another copy-cat start-up that wouldn’t know an original idea if it jumped up and bit them on the ass.
