connecting networking rekindling oh my

I’ve decided to pick up the phone and make calls.  Yes actual phone calls to people I haven’t spoken to or seen in ages, maybe even decades.  What are their names again?  Oh who cares.  We shared a locker in high school.  They’ll remember the days of mouldy oranges trapped within the confines of smelly running shoes and old winter sweaters underneath all that metal shelving.  And sharing quick drags off of each other’s cigarettes was a way to connect with the mates to stay cool.  Who are those people again?  I’m blowing the dust off my yearbooks as I type this. Coin collecting is so passé, I want to collect friends.  I’ll use Facebook and frantically start friending, friending…what an odd word.

Seem kind of ridiculous?  Indeed.  Casting a net to rekindle isn’t genuine.  Facebook and all of it’s digital brothers and sisters like Twitter and Linkedin are a great party and they know it.  Find out how you can use them in other ways too tho’.  This may be a cold shower talking but build and nurture an audience to create meaningful dialogue.  Whether these social robots are used to promote the latest bacon cheese fondue recipe, a new litter of kittens or to tell others about a shoe deal for your footwear company, the social fembots are much more than just cats in sweaters.  Let me ask, what do you mainly use Facebook for?
