Social Status 2.0

By November 28, 2007 3 Comments

Connecting to your friends and family is becoming more and more virtual everyday. If you are not one of the many hundreds of millions of people racing to position themselves as the next big thing online then you may be missing out. How many people visited your blog last month? How many friends do you have in MySpace? How many videos have you posted to YouTube? Is your information in Facebook? What is your rank and level in World of Warcraft or Halo 3? What is your profile name and community you belong to in Second Life? If you do not have an answer to any of the questions above then you may not be preparing yourself to be a part of the next important status movement.

Yesterdays Prom Queen is now Second Life’s Socialite sporting dance moves and social clubs that you can only be invited if you are a substantial contributor to online social status of others. Online social status is really about how connected you are to others and willing to participate in social interactions that may be unfamiliar and uncommon to you. For example, if you haven’t made a RECOMMENDATION of your friends or colleagues on LinkedIn in the past few weeks you may not be losing social status with them. If you are interested in learning more visit my personal LinkedIn, setup a profile and send me a friend invite.

Communication and Networking is now taking place anywhere, anytime with anybody if you have the right connections and are interacting in communities online daily. Six degrees of separation is quickly becoming a few degrees due to the massive networking and connecting online through online social networking tools. For example, with little effort I have the following LinkedIn status and degrees of separation from people as of 11-28-2007:

Connections Your colleagues 53
Two degrees Friends of friends 5,600+
Three degrees Their friends 916,100+

    Therefore that’s why this paragraph is perfect.

  • Lucas is the master mind of this movie and after written the plot of the movie,
    he offered the universal Studio to joint hand with and gave this plot
    a shape of movie but they refused by saying that it is ridiculous.

    moments and have fun building up the model at the same time.
    Ensure that you have the guest list ready with
    you, so that you do not miss out on any important guest.

  • His prequels did establish how these events played out, but have universally panned as failures.
    But if you are a beginner, simply do your best to match story
    elements to this structure. And the only way to offset
    these price tags is to gain a wider audience for the films.
