A thought in reply to Followers on Microblog
Ron Chester lays out an approach to finding people to follow on Micro.blog.
I like Ron’s four strategies, although I might call them four stages of evolution as I went through a very similar process—and still do. Strategies 2 and 4 are the ones that I find most rewarding.
The concluding paragraphs of Ron’s post, however, have some real gold. In particular:
There are no visible scores on Microblog. This is a very good thing. It means I can just concentrate on posting things others might find interesting and then being interested in things I might find posted by others. There’s no way to tell who’s popular, nor a way to game a system to look more popular. I hope that doesn’t change.
