Dunbar #? Mavens?
This article has some interesting views about following large numbers of people, on Twitter.
The author, Matthew E. May, cites social media expert, Chris Brogan:
- First, you don’t need to play the forced-choice, quality vs. quantity game — that if you’re in it for the people factor to connect and build relationships where there’s an exchange of value and the currency is knowledge and information — you can beat the Dunbar number.
- Second, to do that, there are a number of creative ways to leverage that limit. One way is to ensure that you’re in someone else’s 150 by finding the right groups of 150.
If the shoe fits, wear it! I sure do love futurist, up-to-the minute information!
I guess that makes me a social media maven. Who knew?
