Why we’re not friends anymore: the nptech echo chamber

I did a kind of radical experiment a couple of weeks ago: I de-friended almost all of my nptech and client Facebook friends (cutting my friend count by more than 60%). Now of course it used to be that all of my Facebook “friends&# were other nptech early adopters. But around two years ago, a steady stream of my real friends started to come on, and then about 40% of my Facebook friends were non-nptech related. facebook nptech

A key value of following the NpTech Tag stream, even though it is undifferiented is for finding or identifying patterns. There is a lot to be learned about our respective tagging behaviors and who contributes to the NpTech Tag stream and why. So, rather than have just a few folks filtering the nptech tag stream, to have some way to make the filtering social. A sort of "digg" for NpTech Tag items.
