Social Media: Creating MORE real face time or less?

Richard SF Created by Richard SF

Informal collections and discussions about the tools being used in society today online, and on phones, to facilitate a richer life. The premise is based on the notion that clustering your information stream around constant knowledge of where your friends & colleagues are, and what they are doing, leads to higher quality time and life spent with these people, or leveraging the power of your network to propel you where you want to be.

We all know it's immensely popular and growing like a tropical storm. But the question worth exploring is: How is it working?

Another question: is "140 culture"

We all know it's immensely popular and growing like a tropical storm. But the question worth exploring is: How is it working?

Another question: is "140 culture" (# of characters allowed in a twitter post) having a trickle-down effective in overall communication, oral and written? It would seem logical that it would have to be conditioning people to shorter and shorter attentions spans. There is absolute value in thought-reduction into "headline + link" , because that is congruent with how business & society has always worked:

• signpost/summary of what's coming, then the full message.

But to what extent are full messages now being skipped because "i thought we covered that; I said 'k, i'm in' " ... or .. has the necessarily highly informal nature of twitter impacted writing styles for more formal communication?

Personal testimony would be nice, where available. I would be very happy to be surprised by positive trends. ... Also here: Personal commentary on perception of how well it is working.

It's fair to say I start with a somewhat slanted view --- or I wouldn't have created the group to inquire about it :)
