My behavior wrt Facebook Status Updates

I've been spending considerable time on Facebook off late. Of course it's a reflection of my desire to connect and have conversations with more people.

I've tended to overlook status updates from people who post very frequently (let's say those who post 5 or more updates a day). And I think I respond more to status updates from people who post regularly but just once or twice a day.

I also respond more to people who write infrequent longer status updates. That's perhaps a result of my inclination to gobble up whatever reading material is at hand.

In all of this, of course, Facebook's internal display algorithms (and my notification preferences) play a role as well.
