Thing 3

Having started on 23 Things, I’ve been thinking about the value of social networking.

Yesterday I read a Guardian article by Zoe Williams about an interview she’d done with Julia Hobsbawm (http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/oct/10/julia-hobsbawm-queen-of-networking).

What particularly struck me was the last paragraph:

She’s interested in the moment that happens between two people, “the minute someone looks you in the eye and engages you and your cortisol levels drop, and you feel OK” […] “People have been so obsessed with social networks that they really haven’t noticed the human side, the non-algorithm side, is still where it’s at.” “

I wonder how this works with online networks.
