Unchartered territory: stumbling upon someone you know via social media but up until now, never meeting them face to face.
What a funny & new concept to ultimately know a lot about someone but to have never met them. And then, on occasion, you do cross each other’s paths and you think…
“Hey, I know you!
Buut, I don’t?
Soo, how’s your dog?”
So what’s the protocol here? Is it the typical introduction & inquisitive nature to find out more about them or is it acceptable to start shooting from the hip on topics/things we clearly already know they take part in?
Is there a fine line between seeming nosey and just being friendly?
That being said, tis the beauty of social media: to connect with individuals, near & far, with the toss-up of linking up beyond the profile & filter & alternately in the flesh. [planned or unplanned is TBD]
The world is a great big place. I’m thankful I live in a time where I am able to share my life & passions with others & find inspirations in others social media contributions as well.
Cheers to sorting through the [maybe] awkwardness of meeting our social media frans in the flesh & even [maybe] becoming tangible friends.
