Very true. For me, I love the randomized stuff. It’s great to see the same faces a lot — I love hearing the opinions and seeing the faces of familiar people — and yet, I love finding new people, new opinions, or maybe the same opinions expressed differently, new minds… and engaging.
I end up with friends lists on social networks filled to the brink because of it. I always reach the cap, making friends as I go along. (I’m more careful with FB because they don’t like that stuff).
But it’s all because I like the randomness, appreciate engaging with the people I do, and next thing I know, we’re engaging many times in the future over other random things while I’m also finding new people.
I dunno. Being online is like being in an infinite city with lots of interesting personalities to meet and greet and I want to get to know everybody to come by. Not too deeply but on a “hey buddy lemme pick your brain for a sec” kind of way.
and NOW, it’s even better . I get friend requests on networks not just because they happened upon something I said and they liked but, but because an AI algorithm determined, “Hey, Kenneth Udut should be YOUR friend”.
And… the AI is right. Love the work they’re doing in the background with this stuff.
