I've tried to figure this one out my self and now find that others have the same dilema.

What do you consider the right amount of time to spend on social media vs. your main business?

Here's a blog post I read that expands my question.

I don't think ratio has anything to do with it.

Make a plan: how much are you going to write, how much are you going to spend find people on Twitter, etc.

Evaluate
Adjust

For me, it's like brushing my teeth. I check FB and twitter every day. It's pretty fast about 30 minutes for both. Probably more on Twitter since I like it better.

I found out that beeing active on Twitter made my blog grew a lot faster, one of the largest bloggers featured me after I tweeted about a subject. Also Twitter's search enginge is a great way to find out about peoples problem or question about your blog's topic and you can answer them and also link then back to your blog or find inspiration for new content.

I've not been updating my blog too much (i've been focused on other projects) yet staying active on facebook is still increasing traffic to my blog, even though I'm posting to it less than once per month.

Once I get my frequency back up I've got a lot of "fans" waiting to see my content
