I participate on Facebook daily but have the ability to ignore many posts.  My "connection" with Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter is primarily as a tool to gain exposure for my ActiveRain posts and rarely visit those sites beyond that.    

Corinne, do you consider AR social media?  Although it's certainly much more than that I think it is and I'd say it's the "social media outlet" where my greatest commitment(and return on time too) is spent.  

Times change and so do platforms but I have no plans to "go off" social media.   No plans...but things happen, right?

Not off any more or less than before.

I would advise the secret is to make sure 'YOUR' objectives are NOT the same as those who may respond. That means the emotional buttons simply are not there for others to take a whack at.

In an increasingly fragile society, where every disagreeing voice is perceived to be from an enemy, such management tools are essential for self preservation AND creating the space to bring others into a more secure and reasonable understanding.

For business I have auto postings going to twitter, G+, FB, LI and IG.  My IGs get pushed to Tumblr automatically.  I seldom post anything not business related, but when I do it is on Instagram as that seems to be the acceptable place to do that.  Since I only have the business accounts, I limit and extremely censor what I post and even like.

I would be fine with participating 'zero' on social media, though that being said, I am still on social media Corinne Guest, Managing Broker.  I almost never comment, unless if I can add support or something of value (which these days is never my opinion!), though do a fair amount of reading and catching up with family and friend messages, since they do not live in our state.

Corinne,

Our advice is to be seen in the right places !  We recently create an email campaign for our client after culling the list to 1600 people.  We have had stellar results, 75% opened the email, 20% wrote our client directly and over 55% clicked through to the website.  Our client does not participate in social media for business, and uses FB private for family and close friends.  

To answer your question, if there is ROI, yes, if there is not NO.  I have been citing social media fatigue for many years now, based on our on the ground observation in working with clients .
