Typically logistical challenges: Geography, schedule, etc. (at least for me!)
Do you intentionally meet people IRL? Why?
Sometimes because you just know that IRL will expand the relationship & sometimesto "work together" in a special way
always, our intention is to reach out into the communities we serve, which is world-wide, so #travel is def. part of our plan
I intentionally meet IRL, it enriches my work, my life and my mind, to meet like-people IRL
Love to meet when geographically possible, but most of these connections I willnever have the chance to because of that.
SM is the first layer - IRL is when we have a chance to get to the juicy core - andconnect soul to soul
Only if it is a natural progression and/or there is something to be gained by bothparties in doing so. Not JUST IRL social.
140 characters is not enough to have an epic conversation with stories and such. Digdeeper.
Connection is always about authentic intention. I go in with that purpose IRL.
I am intentionally open to meeting people in person.
I intentionally meet people unintentionally. It is part of "marketing myself withoutmarketing myself."
I like sharing stories. U can only do that effectively in real life.
It's important to remember that tech (SM or otherwise) is another vehicle for thecommon goal - communication & connection.
Prefer IRL connections...only got into social media recently.
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?
because of all the community groups we belong to, it happens all the time. always adelight (and sometime surprise) to meet IRL
I remember when I met @raehanbobby - he came up and shared how excited hewas, asked to take a pic. I felt like a celeb :)
I used LinkedIn groups to connect with ppl in my industry abroad, led to Skypeinterviews, then IRL job. Good experience :)
I've had good and bad experiences meeting offline, but some of my closest friendsstarted off online, then off.
Officer Scott Mills is 1st I met IRL and that day, he helped someone out of crisis, w/twitter. He inspires me daily
I connect w/ artists on twitter before in real life, and have built my site around thepeople I meet
I host in person events to give people I meet on social media opportunities to meetin person.
I started off by meeting people IRL locally first. There's always going to be someoneon SM that's local to you. Start there.
