As I wade deeper into digital citizenship (or at least dip a toe in the shallow end) I’m learning a lot and mostly liking it. I revived my Twitter account which was created in 2012 (@sfrudnick if you’re interested) and have been utilizing it to start to develop my PLN. So far I haven’t found too much content related to my professional field (research administration) but I’ll continue to search for it and am hopeful that a conference I’m attending in August will help me connect with some potential network members. As much as I’m enjoying exploring the digital world and developing my own identity I find myself feeling overwhelmed. Every person I find to follow has dozens/hundreds/thousands of tweets to read, many with links to follow which of course I want to read along with associated hashtags which I want to delve into as well. Now imagine this multiplied by every digital interaction I have with every individual or piece of digital media I consume. How does one avoid falling down the rabbit hole and separate the beneficial (whether that’s entertaining, thought-provoking or informative) from the time suckers? What tools help you to be a savvy digital consumer and not a glutton?
