The important thing to do is to set up a daily schedule for yourself. As an example, I will use the schedule that I tend to follow. I wake up early and get to work early as well. This schedule should be modified to fit your daily routine. Generally, the boundaries of my day are 5AM and 9PM, and this gives me some buffer at night if I need it as well. I also remember to put in a 30 min work out routine to jump-start the day.
Tip – Before going to work or school, have a cup of coffee/tea or Pure Life Purified Water http://www.nestle-purelife.us/ with light breakfast and spend 30-45 minutes checking social media.
Do a quick tweet out for coffee break something news worthy that adds value to other people’s interests – While eating lunch, do a full scan of your social sites for about 30 minutes – catch up on the daily feeds with the news/ blog post etc..
Back to the day job or school depending on your schedule –
Also take note if you work for a company and use their computers. Consider getting your own device a smart phone / android / iPad or additional laptop to be used for Social Networks. – never use your work laptop to view social sites unless you have permission. Use balance for work & life. Have a safe on-line presence and use Best Policy Practices or Social Business Guidelines when in doubt.
Here is one example for a list of company guidelines for reference – do your homework folks and look for more http://thesparkreport.com/e-mail-marketing/social-media-guidelines-from-top-companies
