5 Remedies For Social Burnout

Social Burnout is a condition in which acute fatigue attacks the user, and the user is no longer energized by social interactions.

Common Symptoms Include

  • You don’t have enough time to participate in Social Media.
  • You find yourself saying, “They aren’t that interesting.”
  • The cursor blinks a steady beat while your latest blog post is empty.
  • You want to quit.

The Remedies

  • Fingerpaint Or Go Home Go back to your roots of being creative. Create content. Find great content. Remember the quip, “If you’re bored, then you’re boring.”
  • Dial Down The Noise I promise you, it’s OK to unfollow on Twitter, Facebook has many settings to tweak, and you can unsubscribe to all those email reminders from FriendFeed, LinkedIn, Meetups, MySpace — whatever you might be social on.
  • Deep Sea Diving Take a deep breathe and delve in.  If someone links an article, take the time to read it and respond to their status update. Groups and lists are your oxygen tanks — they can help you stay down deep, longer.  Use them!
  • Pursue & Conquer  Pursue new ideas. Find people with similar interests. With this new community, go out and conquer those goals! Find a community interested in learning Mandarin, and create study partnerships.  Seek out complementary businesses in your industry and work together for an event.
  • We Are People All of those people, are people. Be social.  Say hello. Strike up a conversation. Really, it’s OK.
What are you remedies to Social Burnout? Hiatus? Re-create yourself?  I’d love to hear them! Drop me a line.
Stay Social, Kansas City.
