My proportions are probably different to McKayla Kennedy’s, but her answer is what I’d give: McKayla Kennedy’s answer to Why are you following more than 100 people on Quora, and what effect does this have on your feed? Can you really give attention to all your followers’ content? I follow people I want to hear more of, or I want to encourage. And like I’ll bet almost all Quorans, I never prune the list. I am somewhat picky about following, and I don’t auto-follow those that follow me.
I also refuse to follow anyone with more than 10k followers. (The limit used to be 1k.) If the superstars of Quora have something I’m likely to be interested in reading, chances are it’ll end up in my feed anyway.
There are three or four frequent posting Quorans who are my close friends, and from whom I expect to see every solitary word they answer with. The feed typically complies. The rest, I don’t mind seeing less frequently, and I don’t think that lessens my regard for them. McKayla included. 🙂
I’ve caught myself wondering what Joseph Boyle’s feed must be like: follows 19k, followed by 18k. “A kaleidoscope,” I once speculated to someone.
