"Finding people you can ‚be real‘ with are what fuels life into Social Media" | Social Media Today

I believe authenticity can exist in social media. I believe we can start and nurture online relationships into something meaningful and real.  Are there fakes out there, yes. Will there be people who will scam us and fool us into thinking they are real, yes. However, it doesn’t change the hope we have to believe in real people and have real relationships.

Finding the needle in the haystack online relationships where I am real with you and you are real with me is the greatest gift of the social ecosystem. Finding people you can “be real” with are what fuels life into Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. If we were all fakes and not in it for the people then it wouldn’t be as addicting as it is. It’s addicting because we are connecting in real ways with people. We can voice opinions, we can share information. We can inspire. We can connect. We can achieve more together.

This is a great piece on authenticity and the real value of social networking. I couldn’t agree more and can 100% agree based on my experience.
