Online friends

In the process of pounding away on the book tonight, I came across this great quote from my friend and colleague Justin Hitt, who teaches business executives how to develop and manage strategic relationships. He is a user of social networking sites, but a staunch advocate of a focused approach, emphasizing strong relationships.

“When online systems tell you that you can reach 98,000+ plus people, but you know you could not call on seven “friends” for advice and counsel, a conflict occurs.”

How true that is!
