Social networks

If you work full time then much of your time and your life is at the workplace. It means you have to adjust to the comings and goings of new people and old friends. It means you always have to be ready to change relationships. Some people you can keep up with out of work and some you can’t. You can build internet relationships these days through email and facebook contacts. That helps soften the blow but it also has the effect of widening your supoort base if you care to operate it that way. It means you can hang onto   the good people in your life when in practice you just cannot keep up with them all. In the down times and tough moments it means you have an ever willing resource to help keep you stable and steady. Social networks cop a lot of flack, but in actual fact they can be a great way of keeping the positives in your life.It also means as a new person you can get intot he network quickly with the minimum of fuss. At work quite a few of us are on facebook but we are not all on each other’s. Quite a few os us have email circles, for want of a trendier expression. But just about everyone belongs to one of other of those at work and so what cannot be achieved during the day is fast tracked in our own time on the Net. What we have found is we are happier because we seem to know each other and it gives us a chance to have some ready made news. That way the conversations flow smoothly and happily. We have all commented about how much better it is with a social network.
