haha… That’s a very good question @deairby I literally set aside time to check updates and respond. First thing in the morning, once during lunch and then once before I leave the office. Sometimes I sign on later at night too just to gain access to a different audience (time zones).
I think if you find that it’s taking a good portion of your time, a nice way to manage it is to set those particular times and say you are not staying on for longer than 5-10 minutes, unless there is a flurry of activity that you must get involved in.
It is important to respond to everyone who posts, so make sure you have messages set up so you get alerted when someone posts something. And, use the rest of the time to start your own post.
