Hello to all the lovely people here at myLot. I haven't checked the number of active members here. But I'm sure we are all good people. . Yet, we have our preferences for adding people as friends at myLot. I normally add/request people of good outlook & keen intellect demonstrated through their posts here. I also prefer common interests. What is your preference for adding/requesting friends?

Whenever a person responds for my discussion started then I normally send a request. This I may not do in respect of members who have joined just on that day only. Apart from that no strict preferences--no restrictions. Normally people from Europe are less in mylot. So we get more people as friends from India, USA, Philipines. Nowadays we are having some friends from China, Malaysia and Indonesia also. good day.

Yes, through their responses in discussions, people provide insights into their personality that helps us select them as friends. I do that too. I thought there are quite a sizable membership by Europeans here. . May be, I am also not very sure but I guess there would be. How do you socially engage with people added as friends? Do you exchange information, ideas, links and other stuff through pm?

We have people coming from UK, Germany,Netherlands--I have seen a few people. More members are from USA,India, Indonesia, Philipines. Personal messages are sent by me very rarely only when you want to communicate some request which cannot be put in discussion. negligible number of friends get to know each other fully like place of residence, occupation etc. have an excellent day.

i do not mind having friends in mylot, most of the time it is them adding me to their list. and i appreciate that with people who adds me up. i do not think we can ever find out a lot of things about people in mylot just by looking at their posts, or their photos. we won't really be able to get to know a lot about by someone if we do not spend time with them. right?!

Hello chiyosan. I think posts are like beacon lights! We have to go closer, explore & engage. I think myLot's policy is to encourage but I'm also not sure how many people get to really progress beyond customary add and following up friends' posts. It appears people would want to spend more time on discussions for obvious reasons! . I have exchanged some pm with a few friends sharing ideas. I feel its an opportunity to socialize & has to be used more.

I send friendship request when I see this person has helped me and will help me in future too. I add some people just because I like their Posts and feel like they will share these same things in future. I also add people when I want to make friendship with them. Although I have never got any mylot member as my one of good friends, but still I try my best.

One good reason to add & develop friends is to be of mutual help. Not sure if you need specific help or regular interaction from what you call a good friend.. You may elaborate if you feel it is good to share with us on this discussion.

I don't have a preference, everybody is welcome who asks me and I think these are mostly the people who's discussions/interests/the way they write I find interesting. So I assume that is what we have in common? So these people are the first ones who's discussions I will try to read even if it's not always possible to answer them as well.

That's clear WUK as far as accepting requests is concerned. Fair & fine. . How do you initiate add requests? Just a bit more curious.
