Minimize noise. The key to successful input management is the minimization of noise. And on social channels this means listening to those with the best signal (information) and tuning out those making the most noise. Ruthless tuning and control of who you let in is so important. The sooner you abandon the dated concept of the 'courtesy follow' the closer you will be to defining the signal you need. I struggle with email noise and work desperately to keep ads and non-critical communication out of my inbox.
