As you may remember, a few weeks back I asked all of you what questions you wanted me to answer here or what thoughts you would like to open up for discussion.
I’ve received a bucketload of these and have been working through them one by one (thanks by the way).
Most of the questions were focused on strategy, marketing, tactics, tips and the like. However, one stuck out of the pack and really grabbed my interest.
A friend of mine asked a wonderful question, one that has been on my mind as well. Is Facebook killing our relationships?
Professionally speaking (from a business marketing perspective) Facebook is an absolute winner as it helps us connect with people far and wide who are interested in receiving our products/services. It helps us build visibility, credibility and brands us to no end.
But what about personally? Think about what you have done today: logged into Facebook, checked your friends, commented on some things, ignored others, updated your profile, maybe chatted and logged off. Now, think about this day in 1998 BF (Before Facebook). You would have to call a friend, meet them in person, and you’d probably get scolded for sending an email (“How impersonal of you!”).
Well times may be changing…what do you think? Is Facebook making us lazy? Are our personal relationships suffering due to easy access of information? I would absolutely LOVE for you all to weigh in on this one. It is definitely a hot topic that deserves to be discussed!
