Google share

Last Update: June 21, 2014

So, we are taught here to join social networks, to share and write posts.

I would get sooooo excited when someone added me to their Google+, I'd rush to add them back. It's only polite to do so, after all. If they are interested enough in what I have to say, I can be nice back, lol.

Now, a few months into this, I am starting to re-think this strategy. Don't know if I am alone in this thinking, or if there are other friends here that have the same opinion on this: is there really a need for any one individual, blogger, website owner, whatever have you, to flood your "social" box with 100 posts daily?????? I find it extremely annoying.

I follow the famous Mayo Clinic (just one example), and they only post every once in a while. I never had more than one post by them on any given day. So now I am going back and deleting the people that flood my social with too many posts. Anyone agrees?

I am new at this social network thing and don't really know how it works. I never shared any of my posts, but I am about to. And I have to say that I've been receiving many posts on my Google plus account. It's always good to learn from experienced people. Thanks.

It's not bad to share, at all. All I am saying there is no need to flood followers' boxes with 100's of posts daily

I agree Gordi. I follow people that fill a specific need or knowledge I am interested in sharing or learning. It really depends on the types of posts they have. If it is informational and I learn something from it,ok. I don't think most should be posting multiple times a day. It is very annoying, especially when it is products from other marketers. I am not there to buy a product, only to seek out those with more knowledge than I… and of course I enjoy hang-outs with WA Friends.

Hi. I check people out as much as I can before I follow them. Then, if I think they'll be good to follow, I do. But if they flood me they're gone. I don't follow for volume, I follow for quality...and try to do the same in turn. Hope this helps.

Exactly the point, Rick. It's about quality, not quantity. I've just deleted a few, and wow, it was amazing when pages of the same name disappear.
