These are just my thoughts, so I am sure everyone else agrees with them
1. Are funny
2. Announce something exciting
3. Feature pink pants and fun shoes. Trust me, I got great response here
4. Random pictures of funny or interesting things you have seen. My friend AM has this down to a science and always sees fantastic stuff.
5. Interesting/teach you something you didn't know. I love some random factoids so bring them on.
6. Comment on your co-workers. This is also where I shine. I also work in a terrible place with endless stories to mention. I do my people a favor and limit it to the really good stuff, like bagels and finger nail cutting.
They are not
1. Oversharing. No I don't care or feel sorry for you about this!
2. Whiny. Probably means I am going to screen your call later if you call.
3. Political. Quasi is ok but I have a FB friend who is so anti-Obama. I am not politicial at all but their constant trashing of him is just old and overdone. Get a new shtick.
4. Trashy. Nothing is worst than those perimeter friends you have. Very different from you and dress trashy. I take that back. These are good updates. They provide me with lots of entertainment.
Ok think that sums it up. Aren't you glad this was a second post and not included in the first.
