Mario -

Thanks for the summary list!

I'm involved with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and, of course - AR.  But I have limited time to spend on each.

Any suggestions on how you budget your time?

Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend!

Thanks for the list, Mario! I actively use the first four, but haven't used Meetup. This looks like a great way to get away from the computer monitor once in awhile.
