What IS the connection between social networks and being lonely?

Posted by on Nov 11, 2013 in Consulting, networking | 0 comments

I’ve been a proponent of quality over quantity when it comes to my social circles for years now. And as Malcolm Gladwell highlighted in “The Tipping Point,” 150 has shown to be the magic number for most people when it comes to counting the number of quality connections one can have that truly matter. In this same vein, I came across a very clever video from Shimi Cohen titled, “The Innovation of Loneliness” which just might get you to reframe what you likely think about social media, creating a real connection and being lonely. Brilliant piece! The Innovation...

With the recent changes to the LinkedIn profile causing a seismic shift in the social networking universe (kidding! totally exaggerating), I thought I’d take a minute to comment on one of the things that has now taken center stage as a result of the change; your LinkedIn profile Summary.
