I think it’s healthy always to be adapting to new changes and challenges. Every day is a chance to make the right connection and to give someone a chance to make a living by doing what they’re good at.

People are strengthening their connections to their close ties, but losing the social capital of their weak acquaintances

People are more likely to find a job through an acquaintance because their acquaintances have new sources of information. If we just let our social circles go without reflecting upon them, we tend to end up talking to people who look like us and think like us. The more that we have those same conversations over and over, we all increasingly start to influence one another and think alike. So without these weaker ties, we’re essentially all sitting in echo chambers. That’s why that weak tie is so important — it’s providing new sources of information that we otherwise wouldn’t be exposed to.

Open Business Communications in Writing — Posts vs. Comments

Keywords: blogging , keepitalive , blogging tips , bloggingetiquette , blogginginsights , saltedcaramel

There’s an interesting discussion thread started by Sadje & Tanya, perhaps a good place to jump in might be here:

A couple of weeks ago, for Blogging Insights # 49, I asked my readers for any topics that they would like to see discussed on this forum. Sadje whom you all know from her tremendously popular blog KeepItAlive, was the first to respond. She presented a very discussion worthy topic, set out four questions and elaborated very clearly what she wanted us to tell her.

I have a related question: What is the correct blogging etiquette when a comment you make on someone else’s post is not approved? I myself actually started a blog dedicated specifically to such cases (see jax.news.blog — although this was intended as a group blog, very few people have signed up & nobody besides myself seems to understand the intent, let alone posting posts … presumably the more or less draconian rules are a clear sign for visitors to close the window with only very minimal interaction).

In my opinion, all comments should be out in the open. Approval could be a matter of validating (e.g. granting “dofollow” status [vs. a default “nofollow” status] ). I believe comments have in large part been wiped out from blogs primarily due to the censorship (or perhaps the lack of understanding) of bloggers — basically: many people who write posts simply do not understand that they are supposed to approve comments.

I feel this is an important question, because open, transparent and lively communication is the lifeblood of all blogging.

Low-maintenance open-to-all chats will motivate bonding among employees, allow the group-members to contribute whenever they want, and give a voice to all
