Are we sharing content online efficiently? (Part 3)

ISSUE: The Google-verse, continued

I find that my Google Reader in particular is my personal online content hub. I think that’s fine and to all the people I share with, they don’t necessarily need to know that. What I suppose matters to the people with whom you are sharing and engaging online is that you get that content to them in the way that is most convenient to them. Who are these people in my life and why is it more convenient to them—and at some level to me—to share content one way or another?

It seems like the thing about sharing AND engaging is that you better be good at how you share and how you engage with people so that the content that you find valuable will be valuable to others as well. I may measure how people to whom I am connected demonstrate that they find some content valuable differently than you do. I want to be good at creating that sharing value for and with others because at the end of the day, I believe that I am no one’s personal online content hub and so I shouldn’t try to force myself to be that to anyone.
