Follow back or Unfollow this is the new question

So a friend shared this with me today:

It is my contention that we cannot whittle down the principles of web presence simply to an end result. Although more followers is the goal, do we not wish for our followers to have some concern for what they’re following. The purpose of social networking campaigns is to reach more people but when did this process become so diluted that we stopped caring about the content we’re asking our followers to relate to? Holding followship (fellowship) hostage may be a means to an end but stands to alienate followers as soon as they’ve clicked “follow”. This “blackmail” style web presence building is like saying, “I’ll scratch your itch if you scratch mine.” But are we simply relieving a short term itch and ignoring the rash that causes it?

  1. I agree totally, the following mindlessly and garbage content is what I believe sort of led to the downturn in myspace and is starting to deplete the value of Twitter and other unmoderated content websites and social networking sites.

    Yea, I do think there are a little too much blogs with spam and promoting of affiliate content that they loose their value BIG TIME. It’s hard to find much blogs of people offering good content and offering their piece of mind. At least most of the ones I come across aren’t like that anyway.
