Do you see all the same "faces"?

I have noticed recently that I tend to see all the same people posting, and most of them are on my friends list. I only have 33 friends so far, but it seems strange that I see them in almost every discussion... I would think that with over 60,000 memebers I would hardly run into the same people all the time. I can understand that happening in my friends posts, but this is in posts that are not on my friends list, but just in the general discussions. Do you find the same thing happening to you?

I know what you mean, although i am glad to not run into some people i have talked with, you know the ones that when you read there post you get this not so good feeling about them! You know the ones that belong on my game show!

This is happening all over mylot. I had not noticed it till you said it. But my many responses come from the same people. I do think it's also cool. If your having time around you alot. This means your doing something right.

Hiya Reinydawn, I definatly find the same thing happening to me where most if not all of the people who respond to my discussion are on my friends list. I think it is because the discussions move so fast here at mylot, that sometimes the only people who see them are your friends when they have notify on. I always have notify on for this reason. Its unfortunate because its soo hard to make a discussion interesting enough to stay on the first page long enough for some different people to read it. Anyway, hope you get some responses from people who are not your friends, as I am, Tanika.

Hey Tanika - I haven't seen ya around as much lately. You must have gotten a life :) I do get some posts from non-friends, so that's usually cool. But I do agree that a lot of them are from friends. I have to check into that notify thing - I was not sure what it was for.

maybe it's because some of your friends have other friends and they answer these discussions from their friends list and the people aren't on your list yet. that's the only thing i can think of.

That makes sense. I do look at the profiles of people I don't recognize then I end up posting to some of their discussions. It't like a big circle.

Yes and it's rather odd isn't it? I thought it was just me until you posted this. Maybe we are all attracted to the same discussions? I do know out of my 60 plus friends, many are no longer posting here. So out of the 60,000 memebers mylot is claiming, how many are really still here and active?

mylot may have 60000 members, but how many of them are actually active members and not just spammers? I like to see fimilar faces because i love to hear there opinions about everything, it make me think i know them when i actually really don't.

I was also wondering how many are "active" and not just the people who checked it out for 2 posts.

Yep, I've noticed the same thing. I think it's because we're all interested in similar topics, so we all flock to respond to them when we see them. That's part of why I love this community. The familiar faces.

I thought the same thing, we're just intersted in the same stuff. Like our own private club almost...
