How should we use the Suggestions option?

I am new here so I hope old and experienced members can help me out with this. How can we use the Suggestions option without seeming to be a pest?. Can I use it for each and every post that i type here or will this seem like spamming and irritating my friends and followers here. I think people usually read and interact on posts whose titles or topic they find interesting and not because they are suggested to them. How often do you suggest your posts to others?

I think that the best way to use it is intelligently! If you know someone who is interested in the topic or someone whose response you really would value, then use the 'suggest' button to tell them about it. You can use it not only for your own discussions, but for others as well. You are quite right to say that using it indiscriminately (and only for your own discussions) would quickly seem like spam. It would only take a couple of days of multiple, indiscriminate 'recommendations' from a particular person for me to realise that I was being spammed and to block that person.

This is the first time I use this, of course I realize now that it's a threat and can be use by others to spam you. but you have the option to block them I think. I do want my post be read by those who followed me, so what's the point if you don't share your post.
