Now we are all connected by pixels!
As part of my research into understanding how networks are key for opening future opportunities in both professional and personal endeavors, I am becoming more and more aware that this new social network world via such tools as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc...is moving us into a very new paradigm of connection. No longer is it the personal network connection that will be the catalyst to open doors, but the ability to establish your "brand", what story you want to tell the world, and how you want to share and help in the world. For me to understand this new connectivity and where we are headed, I reviewed the book Six Pixels of Separation by Mitch Joel. If you are wondering what is changing in business and society through social media, read Mitch Joel's book. Mitch ends his book with a challenge to us all - "How are you going to spread your story, connect, and add value to your life and the people whose lives you touch?"
