Two weeks away from social media – but I got you covered

I’m going to be away from my social media networks for a couple of weeks. It’s going to be a nice break. I’m sure I’ll pop in here and there, kind of depends on internet access and other distractions. But, I certainly won’t be posting as much as I do now (especially to Twitter).

I tweet mainly about Canadian immigration, diversity and nonprofit tech issues, with a smattering of Canadian politics. In case you enjoy my tweets/posts, etc., I’ve pulled together some places you can get your #cdnimm, #nptech & #cdnpoli satisfaction while I’m away.

Follow the hashtags

info-overloadOf course, the first thing is to monitor the hashtags on Twitter:

I also created a list of 238 (currently, as of Sept 27th) people who actively tweet about Canadian immigration and diversity topics. You can find/follow it on Twitter.

That’ll keep you busy.

Want more? 

I get most of my information/news/article content via RSS feeds I subscribe to. What you see on Twitter is a pretty hefty filter of the information I subscribe to (I’m up to 822 subscriptions in Google Reader now, ay caramba!)

They’re made up of alerts, sites, blogs, etc., that I monitor and who, thankfully, push out an RSS feed I can easily subscribe to. Cool thing about Google Reader (until July 1st, anyway…) is that I can share those feeds with you. So, here are a few, if you want to dip into the firehose of information:

(update Sept 27, 2013 – well, Google Reader is gone, so I can’t link you to the feeds. I use Feedly now and there doesn’t seem to be that functionality. So, for now, the Twitter hashtags above are your best bet, until I figure out another way to share my feeds. I’ve been experimenting with a #cdnimm aggregator site, so you might find some useful stuff posted there from related sites.)

There are some good diversity LinkedIn groups you could check out. Just log into your LinkedIn account and search, under groups, for diversity, nonprofits, immigration. Good stuff there.

Of course, stay up to date through Maytree’s tweets and posts.

That ought to keep you informed, overloaded and well fed. See you in a couple of weeks. 🙂
