Livejournal theory

Basically, anyone's friend's friend's page, is identical. Yeah, there might be different specific posts, but you're basically going to the the same relative ratios of syndications, technogeeks, political activists, self-indlugent ramblers (me!), sexual beings, and teen angst. Sometimes, the same person will contribute all of these.

I think the reason why is simple: You can only do friend's friend's on paid accounts, and the type of people who have paid accounts is somewhat self-selecting. There are also certain people who are nexuses of friends, so you're almost bound to hit one in a friend's friend's page. Finally, there are numerous journals that if you don't know the people writing them might as well have exactly the same content, because it's stuff like "I had jello today" and if you don't know the personal significance of jello to them, it's just a random personal detail like all other random personal details.

I don't really know what this means.
