Why do some people gets more response then other?
January 24, 2007 6:50am CST
When I first joined mylot I was new and used to create lots of discussions well most of them were not quality discussions but later on I try to create some good discussions by being a little creative but I only manage to get like 5 to 15 responses except for 2 or 3 discussions where I received more then 50 responses and when I look at other peoples responses I feel that if only I can get such responses so that I can feel that I can share my thought with other members of this community. Is it just me or other members also feel this way? What I have to do in order to get more responses?

I did not know anyone when I joined mylot except the lady who refered me. I had never even met her. We only knew each other online. I tried writing quality discussions from the beginning. I found that as I continued writing quality discussions, more and more peole began to comment on them. I was getting lots of friend requests also. Today, I still try really hard to write quality discussions and I have quite a following now. Some of my discussions have over 100 comments. That is not the case with many of them though. I am pleased with the people who do comment on mine and I do the same for them. I do however only comment on quality discussions. I dont have time to waste my time on discussions that are going to be deleted.

The reasons I think some people always get more responses are: 1. They have lots of friends on mylot who always respond to the discussions started by them. 2. They start discussions that attract all age people. I mean they start such discussions in which people of all age are interested & respond to it. 3. Their discussion headings are really simple & eye catching. I also always put up quality discussions, but not always I get more responses. Only for 4-5 discussions started by me I got more than 50 responses & others have got really less responses.

Different topics appeal to different people that's all. I don't think it's a matter of what you post, I think it's a matter of who is online when you start your discussions. I find it difficult to get posts with a lot of responses as well, but I'm going to keep trying and so should you :)

I do to feel this way..I hate to see my discussion gone unresponded..I do try to be creative and I think I have started some very interesting discussion but the maximum till far I have is only 13 sadly..I guess maybe I still lack somewhere..I have seen some of my friend's discussion response 100+ and thats amazing..I hope to develop that appeal some day and till then I'll keep tring..all the best to u too..

I think it's just because other people write discussions which almost everybody can relate with. Its much easier to respond in a certain topic if you honestly know what the writer is talking about. It's just a matter of creating discussions that will catch the interest of other members.
