I like to look at the post/share percentage. I try to follow people who post a fair amount of original content (aka, people who post material as much as they share material) because I feel that way I'm actually getting to the info - in on the ground floor - as opposed to people who just share a lot.
But I've been thinking about it lately and I realize that you may choose to follow a certain individual because you share a lot of tastes, so whatever they share, you know you'll probably like - whether or not they post original content.
Are there any other approaches out there? Curious.
Forgive me if this has been posted before (which I fear it may have)
