Hi, my name is Jami and I am a Facebook-oholic.
I invite you to read an article from April in the New York Times called “The Flight of Conversation.” You can find the link here: http://ow.ly/cZPgn. The article describes this time of being so connected on social media networks yet people feeling very alone. Texting, e-mailing, Facebook, Twitter have all allowed us to edit our lives and let them appear much better than they really are. The technology and instant connections that it offers allows us to keep relationships just where we want them – not to close, not to far, but just right. The author calls this the “Goldilocks effect.”
Like many of you, I’ve signed up to get the latest blog posts of different writers. I recently received one telling me about a new book called Humanize: how people-centric organizations succeed in a social world. I thought it sounded interesting, I clicked on the link and realized immediately that I needed to buy this book. I invite you to check it out here: http://www.humanizebook.com/
