“….you define yourself by who you follow. If you only follow your family,
that defines you. If you follow a crowd, like I do, that defines you
too. One is not necessarily better than the other, you just gotta
decide for yourself what kind of inputs you want.
—Robert Scoble, commenting on Friendfeed in a discussion of to what extent social media can scale, especially with filters like FF, and to what extent plain old pickiness or decisions about how to use these tools will inevitably kick in (ie you can’t really get that much out of following, aka scanning, 10,000 people.)
Susan sez: Side point: Each tool has a different purpose and can have different rules and roles for how you use it. I’m still tight with the tweets, open with the blog and FF.
