I follow you because you post content that otherwise I wouldn't be exposed to. That, to me is extremely valuable. You don't follow me. I take no offense from that. Your posts are some of my favorites and it's because they are so divergent from what I post. That's cool. Everyone I follow shouldn't follow me back. That's not how I suspect Hubski will be.

On that note, thanks. I like seeing minimum_wage posts in my feed. Good stuff.

I'm glad to hear it.

I don't follow you because you produce large volume of stuff, a significant portion of which is uninteresting to me (not necessarily bad). However a lot of the people I'm following do follow you in turn, and they act as sort of a filter for the bits I do find interesting, so I still end up seeing quite a lot of your posts and shares in my feed, but it's of a higher quality (to me). I'm essentially following you by proxy.

This is probably the thing I like best about hubski.

That's actually great to read, it means that using others as your filtering device for content works. And yes, I do post a lot of content to the site and it varies wildly by topic and sometimes, I'll admit...quality.
