Like many of the folks here, I take breaks and check in. I do this several times a day and unless there is some burning question I need to ask, I scan the threads to see if anything catches the eye.
One of the reasons I liked it here right away was the format. They’ve made the format exactly like forums have been for a very long time. So the format is familiar and that makes for an easy transition into learning what’s what. I have supposed they did this for a reason. That being, many people would be familiar and more comfortable right off the bat. Like me. Did I say that already? Heh.
I run kind of run fast and loose with social media. When working on intense projects with deadlines, social media has to take a backseat but still, when a break presents itself I scoot to those places online where I know some folks and feel comfortable. SME Clubs is such a place. Twitter is such a place for me too.
At any rate, I do have a daily schedule and that includes breaks. So when I grab a cup of tea, I check my twitter and here now too. Easy and fast, no pressure and fun to see what people are chatting about.
