Social Networks, Bringing Us Together or Keeping Us Apart? (Linkedin Responses)

Posted by on June 30, 2008

No too long ago I wrote a post about social networks, I decided to open up the question to a larger audience and thus asked the question on linkedin. I many great responses and wanted to share a few of them with you here:

Assistant Vice President Business Banking Officer

Social Networks keeps us from the human touch. Electronically we are more connected, we can exchange ideas or opinion faster, and we now say that we have more “friends” that we are popular, etc, but in reality we are isolating ourselves.


I don’t think that people choose to live a cyber life over a real one, I think that social media simply enhances our real lives using the ubiquity of the Internet.

Founder at Total Success Teams

They are two completely different worlds. Like a personal conversation is different from a letter, but both are parts of the friendship. As the pendulum swings we may be spending too much time on social networks, but this answer specifically plays the Devil’s Advocate.

Independent Entertainment Professional

As Richard Buck wrote… no place is apart… for this reason I think social networks, can bring us together… if we are geographically apart… but we must not forget the importance of real social life… the deep intensity of a look face to face, eyes in the eyes.

VP of Marketing & Emerging Media Enthusiast

I can only speak for myself, but I have to say that social networks online have allowed me to build more personal and business “real world” networks and friends than I ever would have been able to previously. Technology simply facilitates my ability to more quickly find the needles in the haystack — the others who share my niche interests, whether personal or professional.

Strategic Transformation Consultant for Telecoms and Social Networking Expert

Social network sites can do part of the job – they can start the process and they can sustain the process to some degree, but that’s not the whole picture.

It’s all about building a trusted relationship, because that’s the basis on which we choose to transact with each-other, whether it’s social or business we engage with people we Like, Trust and Respect.

These are just a few of the responses that I have received.  If you have a few minutes I encourage you to take a look at some of the other great responses that were posted, they are both thought provoking and interesting.  I’d love to hear some of your thoughts, you may post them in the comments section of this blog, the linkedin question closes in 3 days but I will re-open it.

Thanks for reading
