Brilliantly delicious piece Margie. How true in so many ways. Don't we love to joke about oulives and share our hopes and d in both realitrealities? It is very difficult for me to say my off-line relationships trump but they do and you can, if necessary, turn them off but in doing so have to deal with the repercussions in real time. There's no crafting a witty comeback in those circumstances.
Are you as real to me as the people I work with? Methinks that's true.
Tough one to think about.

@Lori Hi Lori. I just saw this! Things are great. It's good to see you are revamping your site. Small steps. I can't wait to see what you are up to.
Thanks for coming by. It has been a while. Agreed, verbosity is one of my crutches, at times. We have a new series started that will likely help with that. look out for it when you are floating around the interwebz. Cheers!

How do you classify the local microbrew? A breed on its own; unique, different, small batch, tight following, quality more important than big sales.....

You sure you have enough steps? It would be funny if it was 12. Then we could make many more jokes. Right @Howie Goldfarb

What do you say to a girl who has EVERYTHING?
You're networking like a pro alright but like any pro I wanna know. How old is this guy? 17? Sheesh. Why does everything have to boil back down to sex? Redundant question, I know. But seriously?

Tough subject. Beautifully written. I am all for the positively that social can bring to an often cynical world. Good for you for sharing your thinking.

Good story. I missed that whole thing. I hope @yvettepistorio is feeling like a winner in this whole thing. Don't know how she couldn't - harrowing as it would be. Onward and upward, I always say (well, ok, not always but I thought it appropriate here).

Hey Erin. I went back and re-read my response to you and yes, I didn't say anything about a blog post on the subject but I am glad you wrote it. Thanks for the share and the link. I really do appreciate that. Hope you are well and things are going well.
I have your most recent communique in my inbox ready to read. Looking forward to it. Cheers!

You are always bending my head. Never fluff, for heavens sake. The best of the least? How can such a claim be made when the industry of engagement is unregulated and any study or brand or researcher can define engagement in any semantic way they choose?
I think your buddy Tom is onto something here but I only think that because engagement is this. Me talking to you and you making fun of me.
@Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing Hi Jayme. I have missed your wit. Thank you and it's good to be back in the fray. I see your point and it is like The other comments here. I may take a poll in my company and see. We have over 500 people so if I can get a good sampling I might make some headway. Naturally, I am asking these questions because I have an idea which should take shape in the next few weeks. Cheers miss.

@Caitlin Kelly Hi Caitlin, I think you hit on something interesting here. Imagination. I mentioned that to Betsy. Video, for all its merit in time savings, may rob the imagination. It's hard to argue when you see something awe inspiring though. It does depend but I m afraid the mass of Gen Y sees it differently. No, I have little basis for that other than what I read and observe in my workplace. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers.
@rlalita Hi there. Not sure of your name. Can you drop by and letme know? Thanks for the compliment. Much appreciated. I suppose you are correct but it seems that the younger Gen doesn't want text based communication as much as the older Gen does. I did say want but likely should have said prefers. I guess it comes down to your audience and who you are trying to reach.
Tell me, which Gen are you? I am on the leading edge of Gen X.
@BetsyKCross Hi Betsy. Thanks for the visit and comments. So, if you think you need to feel what the blogger is communicating (great POV BTW) then you feel like you get more from the written word? What's interesting to me is that with writing we have to work harder on both aides in order to communicate our intent and as a reader to imagine what the writers point of view is. With video the emotional cues are much easier to read but the downside is that we may lose depth.
I like the way you related it. Cheers.
