We hear about "building our network often", but don't talk much about what to do to *maintain* that network. #sm140
Q1: What are 3 “tests” you use to determine who to connect with in the social media space? #sm140
What are the criteria you use to determine who might make an interesting connection? #sm140
Yes. :-) RT : are we talking from a business perspective or a personal one? ;) #sm140
RT : A1: Value, Frequency and Relevance #sm140
So you, go back and read timelines to determine it? #sm140
Yes. :-) RT : are we talking from a business perspective or a personal one? ;) #sm140
RT : A1: Value, Frequency and Relevance #sm140
RT : Often, I'll see them interacting with someone I already know. #sm140
So you, go back and read timelines to determine it? #sm140
But what is "interesting" content? #sm140
Has that proven to be effective? #sm140
RT : no matter the channel, i like when people add, offer or share value #sm140
But what is "interesting" content? #sm140
Interesting approach. How has that panned out? RT : A1: Friends of friends aren't a given ... #sm140
Talk about "value"... RT : A1. How do I determine who to connect w/ in SM? Interests. Value. Likability. #sm140
RT : for me, i look to follow people who have an opinion. have enough people who aggregate links already #sm140
Q1a: Have you had to tweak your "criteria" at all? If so, how? #sm140
Great point. RT : Do criteria get tweaked, or do they evolve as a platform evolves (and your use of it does likewise)? #sm140
RT : on twitter, conversations matter more than the do on linkedin. #sm140
So we've gone through some personal filter for determining who we like to associate with online ... #sm140
This leads me to Q2: What process do you go through to ensure that you truly get to know the people you’ve connected with? #sm140
RT : No, it's more that different people are on different platforms. I meet them where *they* are. #sm140
Curious -- Does anyone *engage* to learn more or is it just passive? #sm140
Do you think the Royal "we" ask enough questions of others to get to know them? #sm140
I would submit that we don't find out what's important to others enough as a connection mechanism. Thoughts? #sm140
Somehow we've made it 1/2 hour on #sm140 without mentioning Dunbar's Number.
MT : Some of my closest friendships have their roots in SM - and a handful of those haven't yet been IRL. #sm140
I did. And thank you for stopping by. :-) #sm140
RT : People who are naturally curious will ALWAYS do better at this stuff than people who have finite information needs. #sm140
If you cull your relationship list a lot, does that mean that criteria could be tweaked? #sm140
No lingering. Jump on in. :-) #sm140

A landscaper once told me that grass watered frequently for a short time grows shallow roots and won't survive droughts well. #sm140
I wonder if the same could be said for our relationships? #sm140
But grass watered less frequently but with more intensity can survive long periods with no water. #sm140
A landscaper once told me that grass watered frequently for a short time grows shallow roots and won't survive droughts well. #sm140
Q3: What can we do better in a social media environment to ensure these relationships are "watered well"? #sm140
Okay final question for #sm140...
RT : A3: ‎Blogs are school, FB is a family reunion, Twitter is a cocktail party, LinkedIn is an interview #sm140
Define "nurture" in this environment.... #sm140
I totally agree. It's maddening when I hear chuckles about "online" relationships and their value. #sm140
I totally agree. It's maddening when I hear chuckles about "online" relationships and their value. #sm140
I'm guilty of not doing this enough. RT : we could take a moment to say 'Hi' more frequently. ... #sm140
I'm not as big on the term "conversation curation" because it strips the human out to me. #sm140
RT : What would u say is percentage of your LinkedIn connection base people you have met in person? #sm140

Thanks for joining in... #sm140
RT : What would u say is percentage of your LinkedIn connection base people you have met in person? #sm140
It's amazing what people will tell you when you simply ask about them, their lives and what they value. #sm140
Does anyone pick a few folks they haven't heard from in a while and just say "hello"? #sm140
RT : my following on LI has a purpose, which is different from Twitter, FB, etc. Having a purpose helps set expectations #sm140
How do we move people past this "numbers" myth? #sm140 #DeeperRoots #GreenerGrass
RT : my following on LI has a purpose, which is different from Twitter, FB, etc. Having a purpose helps set expectations #sm140
How do we move people past this "numbers" myth? #sm140 #DeeperRoots #GreenerGrass
RT : Some ppl always want a way to quantify "popular." Like being prom queen has a value. #sm140
It's Valentine's Day. Go find a couple of folks to reach out to. Simple 'hello'. Ask. Then listen. #sm140
Thanks for having me. Enjoyed it! #sm140
