Which Social Media Outlet Do You Check First?

Which Social Media Outlet Do You Check First?

One of the first things I do when I wake up in the morning is check my iPhone for new email, new tweets, new Facebook posts, and the day's news. I do it in a specific order, too — first comes work email, then personal email, then Twitter, then Facebook, then news on my RSS feed.

Although some may say I'm Internet-obsessed, this ritual of making my digital rounds has just simply become part of my daily routine, helping me stay on top of what's hot in the news, and what's going on with my inner circle. What? I like to be informed! Inspired by a tweet from one of my favorite Twitter users, I'd like to know — which social media outlet do you check first: email, Twitter, Facebook, or something else?

gMail on my Droid, then twitter (via Touiteur on my Droid), then when I get to work, I check facebook followed by work email. After work I check geeksugar and do the rounds on the android blogs.

It's funny, I check them in the order you listed - email, Twitter, Facebook. I haven't really gotten into the RSS feeds thing particularly now because I just follow certain sites on Twitter and click on the links from the tweets...ie how I follow up on Geeksugar.

My morning internet routine is in a specific order. First I check email, then GeekSugar, then Twitter and Facebook. I then check my various newsfeeds. I always check in this specific order and do so several times throughout the day. I am such a creature of habit. ;)
