The Auto-Follow Etiquette

A while back I read that it’s a thing to automatically follow someone who follows you, but the practicality of this seems…well…absent.  How could we possibly follow, in any sort of meaningful way, hundreds and thousands of people?  But I guess that’s the point, social media isn’t all that meaningful…yet it is…and it isn’t.  So why have an etiquette for something that’s not all that meaningful?  I have no idea…

And for the record, I encourage meaningful interactions so, don’t follow me on anything if you aren’t all that interested.  No offense is taken and please, enjoy what you enjoy.  Similarly, if I don’t follow you it’s not because I dislike you…it’s because I might not be able to in a meaningful way.
