Since you started using social media, have you met many people in real life?
 jolewitz
YES, since SoMe, met many IRL and some truly valuable relationships too
KatiaMillar
Some of my fav ppl IRL I initially connected with through SM!
OnePinky
yes! have met some amazing, like-minded, conscious tweeps like all of you here
 jmass
Love when what appears to be complete stranger walks up at a conference and says"I love your tweets!"
 jgombita
When I travelled to Oz (four years ago) it was great meeting a LinkedIn contact inMelbourne. Farthest away IRL meeting!
TomOehmler
I am working backwards from meeting 100's of people a week to building my smaudience.
StrategicMonk
I have been active on social media for 2 or 3 years & would like to meet more peoplein person.
raehanbobby
I initially used #sm to connect and get access to people, then last year startedrealizing the incredible transition to IRL
ideabloke
I think I've become more mindful of the people I meet IRL, thanks to SM.
raehanbobby
I've always been an IRL person, then SM expanded my horizons to reach thousandsand the quality of IRL connection went up!
StrategicMonk
My connections through social media are balanced between people I am able tomeet in person and people I can meet through Skype
JoanneGuidoccio
Not yet...I've been on Twitter only a few months. I'm hoping to get pointers onmoving to IRL today
ideabloke
One of the reasons I moved to Vegas recently, to facilitate IRL connections fromSoMe via conventions and such.
raehanbobby
Sometimes the surprise IRL connections are more fun than the planned ones!
raehanbobby
Well I always say that IRL is the exponent to the SM connection. So I try to max theIRL's out!
AD_TO
yes I have! I have met a good chunk of my followers. I love meeting people in generaland no different on SM @raehanbobby
raehanbobby
Yes! I try to focus on each personl IRL one at a time.
Why is connecting IRL important to our personal and professional lives?
LovelyLu
F2F just deepens the connection, adds the 'human touch'. Online IS IRL, it willbecome more and more the way people connect.
 jgombita
Meeting IRL tests the perceived character/values/personality versus the reality.Usually it's a positive. Occasionally it's not.
ClaireSMBB
Meeting IRL, for me, is about connecting on a different level, sharing energy andideas
KatiaMillar
SM is awesome, but IRL is where the juicy connection happens - nothing like a hug oreye contact!
LovelyLu
There are ways (phone, skype, G+) to add the human experience to online
 
relationships.
 jolewitz
We live in an impersonal world - F2F & IRL yields connection at a different level
TomOehmler
it's all about the personal relationships that grows a business.
JoanneGuidoccio
Can't beat face2face connections when trying to close a deal or move a relationshipto the next level
Hoovers
Connecting in real life #IRL is important for deepening relationships--personally,professionally--& even for brands.
raehanbobby
Even professional relationships get better production when you talk IRL vs. overtools
raehanbobby
IRL increase your SM connection exponentially!
ideabloke
It takes the relationship to another level and shows that you're willing to invest moretime & effort into growing it.
StrategicMonk
Listening is more powerful in person than through social media.
raehanbobby
My virtual hug just exploded 1000x when I saw you in person!
Florentine23p
SM is great to widen the circle of people I can meet, but IRL impact/meeting is prettymuch always the goal for me
raehanbobby
The closer in proximity you are, the greater chance of sharing vulnerability androoting that connection more deeply
JoanneGuidoccio

AD_TO
u need to have people skills. I find that personally and professionally, people must beable to trust one another
raehanbobby
When I see your face, I get a bird's eye view of your soul.
What are some of the challenges to making the SM to IRL transition?
ClaireSMBB
Challenge can be time; I intentionally set time aside for IRL connections, anyoneelse?
LovelyLu
I find that some are shyer F2F than online. There's something to that strengththrough anonymity.
OnePinky
 just time and mostly geography challenge us from getting out IRL / F2F,unfortunately
KatiaMillar
Some folks not nearly as open, warm & engaged IRL as they are on SM - so makesthe meeting a bit awkward
StrategicMonk
Connecting in person generally takes more time & effort than connecting throughsocial media.
raehanbobby
Distance, time, fear of uncertainty and different personas between SM/IRL
lmendersby
For some it's a different way of communicating. Typing instead of talking can be achallenge, as can the other way around.
AD_TO
I feel it evolves around how to spark the first conversation. My advice: just do it!
raehanbobby
Many people feel very comfortable with the SM connection. But in IRL they've alot of anxiety. I've have many awkward meets
lmendersby
SM conversations can create expectations that don't always translate well to F2F.Authenticity can look different on a screen.
JoanneGuidoccio
Time and distance are the main ones for me. Also, there is a certain comfort level inkeeping the relationship totally SM
 
ideabloke
Typically logistical challenges: Geography, schedule, etc. (at least for me!)
Do you intentionally meet people IRL? Why?
 jolewitz
Sometimes because you just know that IRL will expand the relationship & sometimesto "work together" in a special way
OnePinky
always, our intention is to reach out into the communities we serve, which is world-wide, so #travel is def. part of our plan
ClaireSMBB
I intentionally meet IRL, it enriches my work, my life and my mind, to meet like-people IRL
LovelyLu
Love to meet when geographically possible, but most of these connections I willnever have the chance to because of that.
KatiaMillar
SM is the first layer - IRL is when we have a chance to get to the juicy core - andconnect soul to soul
 jgombita
Only if it is a natural progression and/or there is something to be gained by bothparties in doing so. Not JUST IRL social.
AD_TO
140 characters is not enough to have an epic conversation with stories and such. Digdeeper.
raehanbobby
Connection is always about authentic intention. I go in with that purpose IRL.
StrategicMonk
I am intentionally open to meeting people in person.
StrategicMonk
I intentionally meet people unintentionally. It is part of "marketing myself withoutmarketing myself."
AD_TO
I like sharing stories. U can only do that effectively in real life.
lmendersby
It's important to remember that tech (SM or otherwise) is another vehicle for thecommon goal - communication & connection.
JoanneGuidoccio
Prefer IRL connections...only got into social media recently.
raehanbobby
Reminds me of my friend @steveshed who likes to "Network with Intent". Therelationship and the why matter
Can you share a personal story of meeting via SM then IRL? Any good or bad ex?
OnePinky
because of all the community groups we belong to, it happens all the time. always adelight (and sometime surprise) to meet IRL
KatiaMillar
I remember when I met @raehanbobby - he came up and shared how excited hewas, asked to take a pic. I felt like a celeb :)
Florentine23p
I used LinkedIn groups to connect with ppl in my industry abroad, led to Skypeinterviews, then IRL job. Good experience :)
LovelyLu
I've had good and bad experiences meeting offline, but some of my closest friendsstarted off online, then off.
ClaireSMBB
Officer Scott Mills is 1st I met IRL and that day, he helped someone out of crisis, w/twitter. He inspires me daily
AD_TO
I connect w/ artists on twitter before in real life, and have built my site around thepeople I meet
StrategicMonk
I host in person events to give people I meet on social media opportunities to meetin person.
ideabloke
I started off by meeting people IRL locally first. There's always going to be someoneon SM that's local to you. Start there.
