Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest – Are You Sharing Too Much Online?


Do NOT publicize your DATE or PLACE of BIRTH friends.


Just because it is easy to share information doesn't mean you should.  If you see any of those Facebook or other social media status games asking for ANY security information, do not play along and do not forward it to your friends. It's not a game, it's a hacking identity theft business at work. ~  Deb


Excepted from the article & infographic:


It pays to remember that with social media you’re always on camera, and anything you say or do can be used against you.


This infographic from Trend Micro takes a closer look at the risks of posting too much information (TMI) to social networks.

7 Tips To Help You Focus In Age of Distraction & Information Overload

7 Tips To Help You Focus In Age of Distraction & Information Overload | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Beth Kanter has written a great post on this subject, sharing the way she's dealing with it and the 44 people who commented on it have some great things to add to the discussion.


Intro:


This morning I learned a new word for information overload - content fried from a colleague at the Packard Foundation.    It resonated.


I identify with this, here's what really caught my attention:


"The biggest difficulty I experience is the shifting from this forward flowing process of consuming, curating, and sense-making of content to learn versus to get something done".


****The latter requires a different type of attention and whole new set of information coping skills


Howard Rheingold calls this process managing your attention or “Infotention” and it is what he has been teaching in his courses.


I’ve been trying to curate content that offers ideas, tips, and resources to get past that ugly feeling of “content fried.” He curated the above mindmap.


Manage Your Attention, Not Just Your Time:


Don’t just create a to do list, lay it out on daily and weekly schedule, breaking down key tasks of the project to chunks.


****But consider the level of concentration and focus that each type of task or chunk requires – and schedule accordingly.


My question to you is:


What are your challenges? What ways are you drowning or prospering in this area? I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks Jan for curating this post. As I mentioned in Facebook, I have really been helped by Bregman's book, 18 MInutes! His techniques are fantastic. The book is written using stories to illustrate is concepts. I've been slowly trying to put them into practice. It takes discipline
