Social media is not substitute for the face-to-face connection
A Social media is a great Platform. People use it a lot but it is just a tool. You might meet someone new or reconnect with someone that you haven’t seen in years using social media, but you need to do face-to-face connection to build a trusted relationship. We can spend a lot of time in social media with minimal results if we are not careful. Though useful, social media needs to be used in with face-to-face meetings.
