Why I Hate Scheduled Social Media Updates.

I’m not a fan of automating social media and scheduling Facebook updates or Twitter posts. That being said, I admit to doing it sometimes. It’s a necessary evil at times because managing several accounts on top of a million other responsibilities at work and home is difficult, and accounts would often go neglected without a few scheduled updates.
