Blogging: Social Media Zombies


Recently I was browsing the internet when I saw a few posts related to Tumbler. I decided to mosey along and see what all the fuss was about. Before long I found myself clicking the sign up button, going through the motions of building a page and a profile photo. Then I stopped and asked myself what the hell was I doing!?

At the time of writing I am currently a member of and post reviews to:

Bloglovin, Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest, Digg, Libboo, reddit,  Stumble upon, Triberr, Goodreads, Amazon, The book depository, book and blogaholic social network!

Out of all of these social networks I am really only active on bloglovin, facebook and twitter. by active I mean sharing posts but also sharing the posts of others and commenting on reviews. The rest of the accounts are what I reffer to as zombie accounts. Review get posted to these places but I rarely interact with other posters there.

This led me to think about the amount of time I spend on social media accounts. A hell of a lot more time than I spend reading that's for sure. Yet I constantly complain that I have no time for reading or anything else. Go figure!

I haven't decided whether or not I will axe any of the zombie accounts. I need to do further research into what sort of actual views they bring in. What I am going to do is be a little more concious of the amount of time I waste online. I'm going to try giving myself time slots to go online, do what I need to do and then log off.

So is anyone else experience similar issues with internet usage and zombie accounts or is it just me?
