Keeping up with an incredibly large genre of information can be extremely difficult, then add in the fact that an industry like social media changes pretty much daily and it can get damn near impossible. That’s why we have social media to help us keep up with social media (weird, huh?). Here are some social media blogs I keep up with through RSS and Twitter and might even like a few of them on Facebook.
