On The Human Contract You Sign When You Use Social Media

Hey Amanda. I think it's great that you disagree with me. It means something is creating friction and, fortunately, friction changes how things are perceived. 

I think you're pretty right with your assumptions. But I do think both approached this post form a different perspective, you're talking about brands and businesses and I'm plainly talking about people. And this makes a huge difference on the whole context.

Anyway, long time I had no awful experience with brands nor people. All works great here. Follows if used correctly have a long lasting positive effect. Unfortunately, we have overvalued this kind of practices.

"Brands understand that for the most part "likes" and "follows" aren't the ultimate goal of connecting--it's the conversations and formation of relationships that matter."

I couldn't be more in agreement with you.

The core of this is at the middle (more or less) of the post. Empathy, ethics, connectiveness, choice and attention, some of the biggest human assets we have to create human interactions (on the Internet and out of it)

This reflects what happens when you work with different organisations, advice board members, connect with people from different cultures, backgrounds, countries for different purposes. Nothing applies 100%, but this is a common pattern we have identified over the years.

On 13 Ways to Add Human Understanding to the Internet

Thanks Sara. Sometimes we get so envolved on this social hype that we forget how to create value to our readers. It's not about we don't know how to do it, but getting deep and work on the actionable path. 

Takes time, but it pays off.

Thanks for your comment Jay. Exactly, we should never forget that behind all that there is a person who’s creating the necessary moves having the intention to connect, create relationships, communicate or make something happen.

On Facebook Leads the Present and Happiness

Indeed. However, Facebook as business / marketing tool isn't working as it should, or at least not as we wish. Generating stisfactory results in facebook, that justify the money we invest in, have become a pretty messi task. 

 

Thanks for your comment Edmonton.
