Smart Stalking

Oh yea, if you haven’t heard, the internet is huge, over 1 trillion unique urls I hear. While this feels like an accomplishment, I believe we need to do some good old fashion spring cleaning.

But for now, here are some of my latest solutions to organizing and tracking things of interest on the internet:

1) Update your facebook’s “More About These Friends.” Now you can add up to 80 friends so that your news feed will display updates from these friends more frequently.
2) If you like to photo comment with others, get an RSS that combines all of your contact’s comments on Flickr.
3) If you are interested in specific subjects, try an RSS feed using the New Media Buzz Tracker. It tracks your subjects across Yahoo, Google News, Google Blog Search, Technorati, Twitter, and Flickr.
4) If you’re on tumblr and you want to reblog/discuss key topics, i recommend using the Track Tumblr alert.
5) And lastly if you are a sharer, perhaps you should track how many people actually click on your links (i.e. stop telling me what you ate for lunch on twitter.)

P.S. I might be stalking you!
