@JGoldsborough at the end of the day if you monitor and there is a crisis you can circle wagons #pr20chat
prtini
Many online communities are more active at night, so the brand needs to update/engage then. That redefines the workday. #pr20chat

@JGoldsborough @sue_anne Set hours would definitely help. Luckily my current co handles very few support issues over SM. #pr20chat

@prtini My current boss is actually really good at giving us "unofficial" comp time, etc. because she knows what we're doing #pr20chat

Q1 The workday has evolved. If I expect my team to be available at night, I need to make some concessions at other times. #pr20chat
jspepper
@cwilmc That's why a company like that should have outsourced 24/7 customer service with _crisis_ number. And why Twitter is CS. #pr20chat
cwilmc
@prtini Oh definitely there is a difference. If it's not 911 or important, I (and others) won't die trying to respond ASAP at 2AM. #pr20chat

Excited to jump in on #pr20chat tonight. A1: Knowing what your clients need from #sm is crucial, which will also help to plan out your time.
jspepper
@sue_anne But it doesn't take you personally. You're a cog, nothing more and nothing less. That's just the truth about PR/SM. #pr20chat
cwilmc
@sue_anne I agree to an extent. It's very hard to predict a crisis so you need to have open availability at most times. #pr20chat

And then you hate work. You burn out. RT @melshoults: A1: With social media, if you're awake, you're at work #pr20chat

@jspepper Depends on the industry. If my co's software bugs out, it can cause huge problems for customers, have to be available. #pr20chat
jeffespo
@jspepper people who look at their job as 24-7 without VP of C in their titles are taking themselves too serious #pr20chat

@chrisjschmidt Hi Chris, focusing on work-life balance tonight. Q1: With social media always going, how do you go off the clock? #pr20chat
jspepper
@pr20chat That's why you have to have teams around in diff time zones. Or, well, "office hours" #pr20chat
