I’ve written many articles about social networking sites. Here’s some food for thought.
Little Real Networking on Social Networking Sites
These social networking platforms are extremely popular, but in my opinion, there’s little real social or business networking taking place on these online networking sites.
Sure, people are connecting and communicating on these sites, but few so-called social networkers are developing the important relationships that lead to the introductions, recommendations and opportunities they desire.
Social networking sites are used quite a lot to substitute for email, to share content, and to market products and services. Social networking sites are only infrequently used to build their users meaningful business or social networks.
Do you agree with my assessment, and if so, why do you think this is true? Lack of knowledge? Laziness? Other factors?
