I respectfully disagree with you @anitacohen-williams to a degree. I do agree that no one has time to be on all SM’s and be engaged actively, but to not grab the freebies is a mistake. There is a big debate about if you have an account and don’t use it, isn’t that worse? NO. Why? because these freebies have many values even if all you do is register, populate your profile and leave dormant. There are a lot of high value back links out there (Yelp, Klout, Digg, Delicious) There are many search directories that you can create a quick landing page that has sufficient keywords to be found in the inter network search. (Tumblr, Wordpres, Blogger, About.me). There are many of these you can feed using RSS to have content populate from your blog.
Though I believe that your saying that you don’t need to be active everywhere, everyday. I do think it is wise to grab the freebies an capture the resources to brand Your Social Grid.
