I spent some time this weekend whittling down my Facebook friends list. I removed a lot of business names and names of people who had their occupation listed as part of their name. I appreciate hearing about what people do for a living, but I don’t care to be solicited. What interests me most about other people is what they spend their day to day time doing, what things interest them and what they find enjoyable and life enhancing. I skip over the ones who post political news items or event announcements and I look for the ones where someone reveals some personal something about their life and comments on how it makes them think or feel. Even if it’s an inspirational quote, don’t just post the quote, post why is means something to you. That’s what I look for on Facebook.
