1. Sign up for all of your social networks through a designated email account. I set up my clients up with a single Gmail account to handle all of their social networking correspondence. That keeps their business e-mail clear of clutter and gives them a single place to access their social networking activity.

2. Use a handy cross-network posting tool. Try sites like HelloTxt at hellotxt.com or Ping.fm to send the same message across multiple sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Plaxo and MySpace. The handy tools minimize the time you spend posting but be careful not to spam.

Bottom Line: Social networks can be a very effective forms of marketing online, however, you need to manage your networks wisely so they really work for you.
