Just a little heads up that I will be doing a series of posts this week comparing the benefits of face to face networking versus social media.
So ahead of that I wondered if you would be willing to comment on the differences you see and the benefits each offer.
So, what are the main benefits between social media and face to face networking?

There’s just no substitute for body language, facial expression, and all of the other subtleties of a face-to-face meeting. I like nothing better than being able to actually meet someone that I have interacted with through online media. Getting to actually sit down with an acquaintance from Twitter or Facebook substantially elevates a relationship in my opinion. It substantiates or negates whatever your online opinions might have been. Face-to-face also opens up opportunities to network with people that just aren’t in your online circle.
Great comments Doug.
I agree that body language adds to the power of F2F networking. Emotes just don’t accomplish the same thing.
