I am going to try a real novel approach to this @ello platform ... My strategy is to ONLY follow my REAL friends.
I don't necessarily mean the people I work with at @WealMedia or family members exclusively, I am referring to the people who have consistently interacted with me on other social networks.
The hope is that in doing so, I will enjoy a better focus on the daily contributions of my FRIENDS, rather than be overwhelmed by the steady "Noise" from "Friends" who only pop-in to sell me something, or remind me how awesome they are [see image below].
The fact is that social networks are meant to be "social." My Friend @WadeHarman will tell you that they are a great opportunity to build and strengthen relationships. That said, I am going to experiment with my strategy to ONLY follow my REAL friends, and see if it significantly improves my own social media experience.
