I’m getting fed up with the same articles being rehashed about how to filter the noise out of your social networks
Perhaps I’m missing something. Everyone uses these networks in different ways. Personally I don’t understand the appeal of building the biggest network possible as quickly as I can. People matter too much to me for that.
I want to keep my network to the people I care about, or am at least interested in.
Yes people say stuff that is irritating or irrelevant. That is important. That is one of the things I love about conversation – it goes in new and unexpected directions.
If I wanted an effcient network if just trawl ‘mashable’ and the like all day.
I’ve made a call today. I’ll prune my own network, but not by relevance or usefulness. I’ll prune by how much attention I can afford.
I want to contribute more and worry less. This means I would far rather have the space to really listen to all of what people are saying.
If I don’t have the space to do them that courtesy then I’m not really following them at all.
