2 quick questions

1.) how do you to respond to a complete stranger who greets you with questions like "what's up?", "what's new?" or "how's it going?" ? i know it's asked more out of courtesy rather than them inquiring about my life/ health.

i usually respond "not much" and then feel like i haven't responded properly. is there a more polite way to answer them without actually relating the specifics in my life and not appear as though i'm blowing off the question all together?

2.) if i were to post a friends only question here, and someone on my friends list were to skim my friends page, would s/he be able to see the post? or would s/he have to be a member of this community to have access?
