The Importance of Face to Face Interaction

Something that is very important to me is getting to meet people face-to-face.  I love the relationships that I’m able to build using social media tools but nothing beats then taking it to real life face-to-face conversations.  Today I wanted to share my thoughts on meeting people in person and why I want to meet you while at SXSW or any of the other conferences, meetups or other events I will be during 2009 (and beyond).

Since I’ll be traveling over the next few weeks I figured my time to actually write will be hard, especially while at SXSW.  So, I have decided to do a lot more videos over the next few weeks.  I hope you enjoy :)

What are your thoughts?  Do you agree that face-to-face interaction is important?  Why?

    Face to face interaction IS important! There’s nothing better than when you turn all of your on-line connections, into off-line connections. It solidifies/strengthens any prior relationships you have developed with your contacts and ultimately paves the way to greater business opportunities.
