Joe, why are you following me?

I read a lot more than I write.

I listen a lot more than I talk.

I ignore most friend requests on Facebook and connection requests on LinkedIn.

I’m not a snob, I just don’t get what value a connection to someone that you’ve never met, never spoken with, and have little in common can do for either one of us.

Twitter is a different animal. I can block people from following me on Twitter, but I don’t. I can make my tweets private on Twitter, but I don’t. However, I still wonder why have the people on Twitter follow me. They’ve never picked up the phone and called me. If we have met, it was a passing acquaintance. Are you trying to steal my stuff?

I’ll tell you a secret. It’s not the stuff.
