I need someone to organize my virtual social life

Updated: Sep 20, 2021

Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, groups, followers, followings, likes/dislikes….AAAGGGGHHH! I can’t keep track. Oh yeah, and there’s YouTube and all the other media content sites like LiveStream. One needs a social network data assistant to stay on top of it all. Why, oh why, isn’t there one solution to make them all connect with each other? For example, I’d like to go to LinkedIn (my preferred site for fascinating dialog and connections with other professionals), enter one post, and have a pop-up box ask me to check all the other social networking sites I want to have that post referenced in. I’ve learned a few of them do work together, but it’s not a system.

Here’s what I mean:

Say I post something brilliant in the Boards and Advisors group on LinkedIn. I would like some of the other groups I’m in to see it too. Couldn’t there just be a way for an app to pop up with a message like this:

“Sherry just posted something you should see here: [insert appropriate link]”

Obviously, I would want to select (check all that apply?) which groups or sites (e.g., EIGA group on LinkedIn, FB, Twitter, Google Plus) are appropriate. The African Grey group on FB probably doesn’t care about the lastest trends in corporate governance. Also, I’d want to select which social networking site. I pretty much keep my personal and volunteer social networking (FB) and business networking (all others) separate.

And then, as long as I’m wishing, I would have a summary of all my activity tracked by this app solution. Maybe LinkedIn Premium does some of this but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t act as my personal virtual life organizer for everything I do online…

Thoughts? Solutions?
