Is the social virtual relationship getting boring soon? What about feel, smell and touch? I need to give hugs and kisses sometimes! How can I mix it up for a more human relationship!!??

I have nothing against hugs. I think one big takeaway is that the social web is the start of a conversation that lead to introductions in the real world.

The social web is connecting me to more peeps, more places and fueling more conversations far and wide with friends and strangers alike. The conversations start on the web, and continue face-to-face.

If we meet in-person, I promise to give you a hug!
