Andrew, I, like Natalie, focus on the unusual names and the categories I follow. One of my tags is Shepherd, and I rarely get a hit on my branch of the family. Lots of others Shepherd families, though. However, I do keep the tag as sometimes when others are helping me out with stickers, categorization, or just tightening things up, I want to know. This is so I can put an acknowledgement under the sources for their work. Most recently, Natalie worked on my Dad’s profile, so I added an acknowledgement.
Yes, it does make for long feeds sometimes, but I can usually narrow it down, even if there are 578,385,916 contributions to the Shepherds each week!
