Social networking

An interesting observation about my personal life that I would be shocked if it didn’t expand to most of my generation.

I am comfortable if not overly willing to network via the Internet but am hesitant or unsure in person.

I don’t mean to say I don’t like meeting new individuals in my field. In fact it’s quite the opposite.

Instead it is the method. I have spent the last few month expanding my digital footprint, updating linkedIn, Coroflot and facebook profiles, starting a Twitter account, and posting on various design blogs. All of this is natural if not second nature to me. Then, about a month ago, I met an individual and exchanged business cards. A seemingly natural transaction, I have become used to digital networking and this physical transaction threw me off.

Now there are many articles out about new social media and networking. What they all fail to address is the need to preserve physical networking as well.

Technology is moving social networking forward and it is infinitely easier to stay in touch with people, but are we losing simple human interactions?
