No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.


@fribbledom not really. On FB and Birdsite there are simply too many astroturf accounts. Curate your feed carefully there. Find better ways to see what other people are using for information.

@RandomDamage I didn't say "follow random idiots". When it comes to diversity, though, Birdsite is big enough to be as diverse as it gets.

@fribbledom the challenge is following people who disagree with you *and* have a sense of editorial integrity.

No matter what your personal philosophy, those people are rare.

Better to just read HuffPo and The Federalist if you need some diversity and aren't hanging out with a diverse group in meatspace.
