For industry pros who use social media for work, the saying “social doesn’t sleep” is a popular phrase that all know too well. But just because social is 24/7 doesn’t mean social media/community managers have to be. Whether social is being used to build community or to keep current with industry trends, personal downtime should also be made into a priority.
Join us for a no-holds-barred discussion on why social media burnout is real, how to detox and personal stories shared by those who’ve lived and breathed it, and are optimistic for change.
