Do you want to maximize the impact of your social networking efforts?
Basic housekeeping tasks are necessary for maintaining complete and engaging profiles.
The good news is that you can easily revitalize your Twitter experience!
Here are 16 ways to bring new life and renewed business purpose to your Twitter efforts.
#1: Organize whom you follow with lists

When Facebook moved the navigation into the left column and added the Photostrip, I wrote how you could optimize your Facebook page for visual branding.

As of March 10, 2011, it became official—the new Facebook page layout was applied to all fan pages. Now that the dust has settled, bugs addressed and some tweaks made, admins can now focus their attention on making the most of what Facebook has given them, which is a LOT of screen real estate!
Essentially, the new page layout gives over two-thirds of the available screen space to brands (see the red boxes in the image below), with Facebook reserving only its narrow blue band at the top and the right column for its own content.
