Don't get into social networking if your in-person* networking sucks!Because:
- You're wasting your time and other people's time on social networking sites if you are unwilling to work from a mutually beneficial stance. Just email me your brochure if you want to prospect. Don't make me wade through your pseudo-free-invitation/informational link just to find out you want to sell me something.
- Social networking sites give us such a narrow view of a slice of each others lives, that everything is magnified. Good and bad traits are out of proportion, because we don't have a lot of context to put them in.
...Tomorrow: other habits/traits that are more important on social media.
*Thank you Daniel Klotz for the suggestion of this term to mean non-social-networking networking.
