Jessica Foust with TopTenREVIEWS offers simple ways to manage your digital life.
In today’s digital world, it can be a chore to keep track of email, news, blogs, Facebook, Twitter and all the other content you view every day. Most of us have several accounts with little time to check them all – making it harder to keep in touch with family, friends, and co-workers. To start getting a handle on your digital lifestyle first look at organizing your email inbox, then aggregate both news and social media.
1. Managing Multiple Accounts:
A convenient way to streamline multiple accounts is to feed all accounts into one email or device like using Gmail or your Smartphone. This way you can check all of your accounts at once without having to go from one email server to the next.
Organize. Organize. Organize. Simplify your life by creating folders to separate work, friends, family, church and other categories.
Use filters to sort through your email. Most mail applications have filters that can keep your inbox organized and low-priority mail in a folder. It simplifies finding emails on your priority list.
Bookmarks are a great way to keep track of websites you want to revisit later.
Just like your inbox, keep your bookmarks organized. The more your bookmarks are sorted in a logical folder structure the better you can save time surfing the net.
2. RSS Feeds:
This is a quick, easy and efficient way to read news and blogs. To get the most out of them, use an aggregator like Google Reader to organize, search and categorize news items just like you would with emails.
1. Social Media Aggregators:
These will consolidate all of your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn and others into one. They can also integrate instant messaging services like AIM and MSN Messenger. The best will allow you to share your status updates, pictures, and other content.
