Today I have installed the new Skype for iPhone app. Personally I love it, but later I started to think about how we communicate with everyone in those days…
With my iPhone, between twitter, contacts, Skype and now Skype I can contact directly more or less 500 people easily… but with which quality?
We can communicate with hundreds of people with something we have in our hand but sometimes we have difficulties by interacting with the people we are in front of. That is in some way scary, because with internet we start thinking about the quantity and not about the quality of the relations that we have. It’s hard for us to make good relations with people on internet, cause we have things that are missing, we see them in a controlled environment where there is nothing out of our control, in real person we challenge ourselves.
We can use internet to keep connection and make them grow, but not to make new ones. We need to trust something in a way to make relationship grow and see the real person in a real environment. Sometimes is good to start thinking about the quality on how we know people and not on how many people we can and we know.
