There is a lot of talk around net of spending to much time on Social Media.

One of you clever programmer blokes should come up with a app/program /gadget That effectifly swings a sign on ALL ones online connections saying Gone Fishing or Gone to lunch back at 2.

Imagine clicking one icon on your desktop puts a sign out on the net.

I use the wonderful IFTT just brilliant and I dont use hootsuite but tweetdeck (not as good but does the job)

I was thinking of a system where you filled out all your social network connections ONCE then when you wanted to "Go Fishing" which of course would change depending on when they are biting ...(who am i kidding its NZ they are always biting!)

You flicked one switch and voila anyone who emails or tweets you or FB's you or sends a email get s a gone fishing reply

Hmm,
One thing with access to all of my accounts across multiple services?

no thanks.

Do your friends etc expect quick responses to fb and twitter messages?

A lot of the talk about cutting oneself off form the Social media is Mental health issues etc.

So part of the move is to get people to smell the roses again
Damm I'm old enough to remember when the shops in the village all shut for lunch! and forget opening on Sunday

Now wherever you are email is there with you etc

also there is a commerce opportunity for all those returns that happen

Plus I think we are ll past thinking that we actually have any real control over our own information arn't we?
