Re: “Maybe I’m just “friends” with dull people, but reading my feed provides no insight because it’s so routine and predictable. In a social sense, I’m not learning or growing as an online being anymore.”
Now that being said, the fact is, Quora (for example) isn’t for everybody. God help me if I start upvoting answers from my twelve year old niece, or even worse, an exGF that I continue to be vaguely friendly with.
Not for nuttin’ but wasn’t Google+ supposed to be the answer to much of this? Perhaps social networks are not the problem. Perhaps we’re the problem? Excessive, trite, self-serving, selfish, small-minded, etc. Sound like anyone you know?
