Manage Your Connections

Scott’s Thoughts: Managing Connections
Friends, fans, followers and connections… but why?
“Enough is as good as a feast.” –English Proverb

It’s interesting to see how social media has placed a premium on the number of people we “collect” as our own. We count our friends and fans on Facebook, our followers on Twitter, and our connections on LinkedIn. We track the number of visitors to our websites and count how many comments people leave on our blog posts. The theory goes: The larger your network, the greater your influence.

But is that really the case at all?

What do we really want out of these connections? What will these connections demand of us? Is there a hidden cost associated with maintaining these connections?

We may not know all of the answers to these questions, but it is important to be mindful of the questions as we experiment (See our post: “Start Your Experiment Today“). It is interesting to note that many in-person organizations, clubs, or meetings come with a purpose attached; it may be networking, socialization, or strategic planning, but the point isn’t to cram as many people into the room as possible and hope something happens.
