We’ve all been there- too much email, direct messages, updates, tweets, check-ins, event invites and pokes!  However, you can make social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn more manageable with these tips. Manage Notifications.  If you are getting tweets, updates and comments all times of the day and night, it is time to adjust your account settings.  After all, do you really have to get the play-by-play of every Facebook post on your profile, as it happens?
