Productivity Killer: social media

    Thanks, Marlena, for the “How to Not Suck at Facebook” feature. I think I passed because I don’t do any of the Farmville, Fishtank, or other such things. In fact, they’re all hidden from my Facebook page. I may have missed it, but I also hate the people who keep us guessing; such as, “I’m so excited for tonight,” or “I have butterflies in my tummy,” or “I wonder what happened?” Sometimes I just have to call those suckers out.
