With all the data that is available to us, we can easily get lost in collecting, reading and sharing it.
Some people have a system and just check in first thing in the morning and at the end of the day. They sign on, say hello, make their presence known, then they log off.
Our lives are filled with data supplied by social networking sites like Facebook and Linkedin. Data, when broken down, is bits and pieces of our lives. We have thousands of digital photos and videos that we can’t part with … like love letters in the bottom drawer.
All of our data is linked … and the six degrees of separation is no longer a novelty due to social networking and everyday forms of technology. LinkedIn, Facebook, WordPress blogs, websites, Kindle, Twitter, Instant Messaging, Pandora, I-pods, discussion boards, email, Skype, texting, I-phones, U-Phones, We-Phones and devices yet to be created continue to add more data to our lives.
And somehow we make sense of it. We find our niche and select information that aligns with our personality, attitude, character and persona. We bookmark sites that speak to us and blog about topics that matter.
Data is everywhere and for some reason, that’s ok.
