In “real life” I’m not much of a networker. Maybe that’s one reason I love the “virtual world” so much. For introverts like me it’s much easier to connect with people–on my schedule and within my comfort zone.
If you’ve listened in to any of my teleclasses about Twitter or social networking you’ve probably heard me tell the story about the time my daughter got gum stuck in her hair and my Twitter friends rescued us (peanut butter works, for the record). Or about how helpful my Facebook friends have been in helping me try different things for my recurring migraines.
The human connection. That’s what I love most about social networking sites. It’s more than just swapping business cards and trying to sell our services or products. It’s two-way communication, building relationships.
How about you? Do you enjoy social networking? What’s your favorite part?
