The Pareto Rule – or the 80/20 rule – in Social Media terms, suggests that 80% of the value in your social network comes from 20% of the connections.

Take time this spring to prune the dead-wood from your “social graph”, and feed the connections that you want to nurture and grow.

Work your way through your connections – whether through LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, or blogs and feeds.

If there’s no value in maintaining a connection, prune it.

As half of the team behind 101projects101days.com, I am a serial starter of things, beginner of projects. I work in bits and in bytes, in words and paragraphs; I work in wood, metal, and paper, in fabric and in leather; I work in fits and in starts. Most of all I work intermittently and inconsistently.
