I have become pretty involved in a couple social media sites; specifically the Dailymile and Twitter. As a result I am starting to get overwhelmed with all the friends/followers. That may sound snobbish and I really don’t mean it that way. Honestly, I don’t have as many friends or followers as most people but I am finding I am starting to get selective about who I share my information with. Parts of my life I want to keep private and there are people in my life I need to protect so accepting every request or following back everyone just isn’t possible. I have also been trimming my lists from time to time. I have, for sure, met some really awesome people that were total strangers before we found each other through the interwebs; and I have met a couple crazy ones as well (one of which is doing St. George with me).
So I have a couple questions…
Is this something you all do or struggle with?
Is it rude not to accept a friend request?
Is it rude not to follow back everyone who follows me on Twitter?
What are your thoughts on the matter?
