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.
Some of the uses i see suggest more intimacy(using the word loosely) and others more a general forum.
In some ways this is all very public and intimacy is very visible.. It's probably okey, if you want something which is really for a tight-ish knit group.
