    Couldn’t agree more Valerie. From my experience stronger relationships be they business or social are developed when there is regular face to face contact. I’ve been analyzing much literature on this topic so don’t get me started. 🙂

      Helen: I love social media (love it!) but am amazed at the number of people who think they can hide behind a computer 100% of the time and who never go to networking events IRL!

    I don’t think it’s because it’s the least crowded channel. I think it’s because ‘real life networking’ is, by a factor of a squillion, the best way to ‘interface with a human’.
