7 Social Media Resolutions for 2015

Yohana Desta | December 4th, 2014 | Mashable

Don’t go to bed with Twitter in 2015.

With the new year comes a new you — on social media, at least. As 2015 rolls around, it’s time to once again come up with resolutions you absolutely, definitely, totally will not break. When it comes to social media, there are probably a million new things we could all be working on.

From trying new networks to keeping social media out of the bedroom, here are seven resolutions you can work on in 2015.

  • 1. Mute more people on Twitter.


    The 140-character social network blessed us with the ability to mute users in 2014. That means you can do all the followbacks and courtesy follows you want, and you won’t get stuck scrolling through undesirable tweets.

    If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry: We have a few recommendations of who to mute first.

  • 2. Keep up with LinkedIn connections.


    For some people, LinkedIn is social media kryptonite. Sure, you’re great with Facebook and Twitter, but something about the site’s lean toward networking makes it much more challenging. You’re not just being yourself, you’re being your most polished, professional self.

    However, for those who know how to wield it, LinkedIn can be a powerful tool for networking and branching out. Check out these eight power tips and tricks from Mashable, or these 10 simple stepsfrom LinkedIn itself to boost your experience.

  • 3. Delete (or download) those mobile apps.


    This resolution goes out to all the folks constantly thumbing the Twitter app on their smartphones. Unless you’re required to always be tapped in for work or personal reasons, wean yourself off your social supply by getting rid of your social media apps.

    But we also have a resolution for people with the opposite problem. If you want to be more socially active, make room in your phone’s memory for apps. The constant presence might encourage you to post the occasional Facebook or Tumblr post.

  • 4. Clean out your Facebook friends list.


    This might make Mark Zuckerberg sad, but it has to be done.

    Unlike Twitter, Facebook made it really easy to hide people a long time ago. However, also unlike Twitter, Facebook shuffles around the stuff you see on your News Feed based on your activity and who you interact with. Just cut the dead weight already and keep the friends you actually want.
