Too Many Ways To Message Me (Or Am I Just Getting Old)?

Social Media is great, and I am sure we can all cite examples where it has benefitted us, but there now seems to be too many ways that someone can communicate with me (apart from letter, postcard, phone call or in person).

So rather than “communicate” – maybe I should say “message me”. Actually, the problem is not sending the message out. You can make sure any message hits multiple channels. The problem is neatly summarised by Just a Thought below:

021283-too-many-messages

So is there a business opportunity to create an application which will aggregate all the messages, spot the duplicates sent through different channels automatically, and then sift out the once that are really important? Maybe it already exists.

Answers on a postcard….
