Wait. Why are you following me?


Yesterday I had an aha moment when I posted a status on Facebook and someone responded immediately. It occurred to me that people actually read my updates. I’m probably one of Twitter‘s greatest fans, but I had to wonder– why are people following me? I came up with this short survey because I’m really intellectually (not narcissistically) interested in understanding what is motivating my followers to follow me. My curiosity stems most likely from my years as a small circulation (yet clubby) newsletter editor where I knew most of my readers.So, if you’ll indulge me… tell me, why are you following me?Click Here to take surveyIf this goes well, I will follow up later with a short survey attempting to understand who my followers are as a unique cohort and see if I can draw any conclusions. I’ll publish the results of both.

  1. I’m following you because I’m following all my friends. When I watch my "home" page in facebook or linked in, everything my contacts say or do appears there. The more you say or do, the more likely it is that you will attract a response from me.
