    Nice Post – and here’s the kicker – friends online MAY NOT be someone they have ever met FTF. More likely they are people they have gotten to know (and trust) by participating in a community over time. That is the gold mine of the social web.

    Many people just accept online invitations to “join my network”. The real trust comes based on the depth of the friendship. I like to call it “the trusted network”. This is when you really know someone. Perhaps you went to school together, grew up together, work together, attend the same church, etc. As we all know, there are a limited number of real people in this circle.
