In 2010, 283 posts were published on the Anti-Social Media. That’s an average of 23 a month. How I’m still on the brink of sanity after writing and drawing that much is beyond me.
What is clear though is that you all enjoyed the things I wrote. Here’s the ten most popular posts that appeared here on The Anti-Social Media in 2010.
- Rule # 5: Take Breaks - This was a matter of timing, serendipity, and getting shared by the right source at the right time. I published this a few days before Christmas, and it was picked up by SmartBrief on Social Media as a reason to take a break then. Soon, all of you who needed a reason to step away from the iPhone and the laptop for a few days held up this post as your shield. Glad I could help keep your personal life alive for a day.
- Stop Linking All Your Social Accounts! - I still see people doing this, especially their LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. Stop it. I don’t need to see every @ reply twice.
