Social media sites don't teach us anything in particular, they are just IFEs (Information Flow Environments). These are like an addiction which occupy mind with continuous flow of information.  This may contain both relevant and irrelevant information which diverts attention and you cannot easily neglect them. When you keep it organised it is easy to avoid irrelevant information away from the timeline or you can go to the particular list to see the news feed very relevant to your list name.

People spending time on social network always have easy access to information using their smart phone's or laptops. But does everyone streamline what information is flowing in ?. We hope they don't.  

There are few simple easy to create lists and tags which can stream line your information flow :


In Facebook, lists can help categorise your pages and interests. By using "Addlist". This is also available in Facebook Pages.
