You should put me into your "Noise" group.
That's where I put everyone. Unless:
- You've kissed me.
- You've smoked weed with me.
- You are an amazing technologist who makes me smarter everytime you post.
These are pretty much the same rules I use on Facebook. They work there. Why?
Because anyone who you have an emotional connection to generally will bring you much more value than people who you don't have an emotional connection to.
On Facebook this has the extra benefit of making the filters there MUCH better. (I've proven that over and over by "tuning up" my friends' accounts. Every one of them says their feed was much improved after I put everyone onto a list (while showing them what I was doing and asking them who their real friends were).
So, go ahead, put me in noise. If I want to be in your friends group I gotta earn my way out, the same way you gotta earn your way out of my noise group too. :-)
