89 Monday Musing: Rethink Your Connections

On today’s Monday Musing, Jeff recalls an incident on a previous episode of the podcast that has completely reshaped the way he thinks about his connections online. He’s asking the tough question about his connection group and you should be too.

How many of those people in your connection group are you actually connected to? How many of them do you know? How many of them are worth talking to? How many of them are bots?

It’s time to stop obsessing over the number of twitter and linkedin follows you have and start obsessing over how connected you are to the people that do follow you.
