What is the deal? I always try to respond to friend's discussions

I have a number of friends on Mylot and I always go to their discussions first and make responses each day. I figure that is the whole purpose of making friends on such sites. However it doesn't seem that others do the same. Most of my discussions don't get many responses. I really don't believe they are too boring to leave a response. But I guess others do. Isn't the purpose of having friends on here to help each other with making money by responding to each other's discussions? Correct me if I am wrong but I really feel that is the whole intention....

You are right my friends, I answer your posts whenever I do answers posts, sometimes I get so overwhelmed and get almost two hundred mylot notifications a day and I cannot keep up so I delete just about everything, I am sorry if I missed yours, I try to be fair and not delete the same people all the time,

I hate discussions with no responses, if that happens pm me and ask me to go to it and answer, I will find something to say, don't worry.

Well, it is the reason for having friends...not the only one but one of them. As to why ppl don't respond all the time...it could be any number of reasons from their not interested in the topic or maybe they haven't gotten to the discussion yet. That's usually the case with me...I'm usually really behind but lately I've been trying to catch up. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I am sorry, tammytwo, that you feel this way. In some time at some point, I did feel this way but I am lucky to have only one discussion started that has not been responded to at all. I have learned to accept that not everyone will respond to what I start be they my "regular friends" here at myLot. I try to respond to those who respond to mine, I think it's but fair and nice as well but we can't get to answering them all. In the meantime, keep on myLotting.

I support all of my friends, once upon a time I would respond to them all but now I see that it isn't always possible. If I don't have an opinion on something it makes it hard to relate to the discussion and at a point I was responding more to others that had no interested in being my friend but only to receive extra responses. I tend to support friends more now, if someone isn't interested in discussing things with me then I still respond but I don't ask how they are or ask questions. I just add my thoughts. It's a shame when people just request to be your friend with no intention of responding to your discussions. At least you would of thought the odd comment would be made.

I agree with you. I always go to my friend's discussions before I answer anything else. Thank you for responding to my posts. I actually don't create many new discussions anymore but instead answer others to try to reach my payout.

Tammy, I took a look at yout profile and looked at the statistics on your discussions and I think your response numbers are about average. There is a lot of competition as there are many members and many posts and a limited amount of time. If you are looking to create discussions that many people will respond to you have to think about topics that are universally interesting. Also, a number of your discussions aren't really discussions but one sentence statements. Be sure you're giving people something to work with. I don't think it is necessary to knock yourself out responding to every discussion your friends start. Pick a day for responding to discussions and one or two discussions from each person. That way you can spread the love and help everyone and still have time to post your own discussions and photos because this is where most of your earnings will come from. You should also make it a point to respond to discussions outside of those started by your friends.

Thanks for your response. I have had very little time on here lately. So haven't responded much to anything.
