Until I discovered Tweetbot for iPad, I was at my wits end not being able catch up with my Twitter feed completely. I’m following about 50 people, which is far less a number when compared to the rest of the Twitter universe. Yet, I couldn’t find a perfect app that could archive all the tweets and show even the tweets that showed when I didn’t refresh my feed by opening the app. Conversation management sucks a lot too.

That’s only about Twitter. Facebook is a lost cause altogether. I never know where I left off and from where to catch up. While everyone is hating email to the core, I wouldn’t mind if I could manage all my social conversations on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, comment threads, and everywhere else from one dead-simple inbox, just like email. That’s when I found FanMix.

As many social networks as there are today, you’d think people must be sharing more info online than ever. We’re putting pictures on Instagram, sharing location on Foursquare, friending our bosses on LinkedIn, and liking everything on Facebook. You’d think McDonald’s would make a social network just so we could get an “I’m lovin’ it” button.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has invented his own law of sharing, saying that each year, people will share double as much online as they shared the year before. From pictures to events to what you’re eating for dinner, seems like social networking executives want us to share everything online.

Truthfully, most of us are sharing more than before. Twitter being 100% public seemed odd several years ago, but nowadays, many of us cross-post to the relatively more private Facebook and the absolutely public Twitter. But what’s the limit? How much will you share online?

We’re curious: Do you think you share more online now that you used to? Are you cutting back on how much you share, or do you think you’ll continue to share more and more on social networks?

Do you ever feel like you’re being followed, or watched? That tingling at the top of your spine, those sounds that you only half-heard but know were there, that whiplash that you get when you try to catch your stalker in the act; those are all natural feelings that we get all the time. Sometimes it’s nothing; a person happens to be walking in the same direction as you, or an alley cat is busy stalking through dumpsters for a half-eaten meal.

Other times someone is actually following you. Whatever their intent is, you go into survival mode, adrenaline pumping through your veins, heart beating in your ears. This is how you should feel when you browse the web.

Chill. Most everyone has used the word before, generally as a verb. ‘Wanna chill?’ is a fairly vague question, but there’s a general understanding that you’re going to be spending time with the people that you care about, enjoying some form of media, and sharing the experience with the people that you know.

Chill is bringing this to the web as a place for you to share and watch videos with the people that you choose to follow. There’s enough to do on the Web that requires some thought; it’s about time to chill and catch up on some videos.

2011 was a huge year for social media. Granted, since 2004 we’ve seen an explosion of social networks, an insane growth in Facebook users, and Twitter take on widespread adoption. More of my students are using Twitter today that in previous semesters.

But still, in comparison to other years, this year was huge for social media. Not only did Facebook and Twitter see massive changes, but we saw another big tech company enter the social media ring: Google. The big three are all moving decidedly in one direction: mobile.
