Social Networks, Bringing Us Together or Keeping Us Apart?Here's what I offered:
Good question, Jacob!What do you think? Are social networking tools bringing us together or keeping us apart?
I still believe that the telephone is one of the best social networking tools around, and, at least for me, there is a point when you want to take your online connections into the real world. Last year, I began creating opportunities to network away from the computer.
During the week, I meet with folks I've met through social media periodically for lunch. Last October I founded New Media Cincinnati, a meetup group for folks interested and passionate about new and social media to get together. We hold conversations in real life and online.
Social networks are the people; not the tools themselves. The tools exist just to facilitate the real-life connections.
