Friends...fans...followers...tweets...updates...check-ins...hashtags...it's all meaningless without the personal bond forged in a true relationship.
I was reminded of that today at my neighborhood's holiday parade and cook-out.
Sure, I'm connected with many of my neighbors in online communities. Yet, that doesn't replace catching up live and in-person for even 15 minutes.
Happy 4th of July!
|Each block in our neighborhood creates a float to drive in a parade.|
|Neighbors working together to add signs and streamers. That's social, right?|
|Many floats had a theme...like pirates or Harry Potter. A reminder that content must be entertaining.|
