When you work in social media, you quickly begin to realize one of its biggest danger. No, it’s not dealing with a Facebook algorithm change or proving to a client your social media campaign ROI. The biggest danger of them all is the timesuck that can happen if you aren’t careful. One minute you’re dutifully posting the necessary posts, the next minute, you’re stuck reading up on somebody’s posted link on Twitter, or watching videos found on Facebook.
By now, you’ve got to admit it to yourself, you’ve probably done this before. Nobody is immune from the effects of social media and its seductive allure.
