    Social networking: How easy and how difficult?
    (The topic was once discussed on 19th August 2016)
     

    Every time you meet someone, you are networking. Every time you pick up the phone, you are networking. Every time you send an e-mail, you are networking. Every time you engage someone in conversation, you are networking. Every time you write a note, you are networking. Every time you attend a meeting or join a social club like Advance English club, you are networking.
    Yes, we are all networkers although some of us may be more effective than others; some may enjoy it more than others, and some do it with purpose while others only wander aimlessly through the process. The fact is like it or not, successful networking is essential for greater profits and increased business. Study the biography of any successful person and you can see how key relationships accelerated their growth.
    However, for many of us, it is not easy to develop a relationship from scratch especially when we want to connect with more successful and influential people. For people who are not naturally outgoing, things can be even more challenging. So, what should we do to become successful networkers? what are the best strategies to build a strong social network? Let’s join our discussion to explore the topic in detail.
    Questions for discussion:
    1. How many close friends do you have?
    2. Is it better to have few friends or many friends? How many good friends should a person have?
    3. What should shy people do to meet new friends or increase their social network?
    4. Situations:
    a. You want to get the attention of people who are more successful than you are. What should you do to network with those “celebrities” like a champ?
    b.You want to reach potential new clients or recruit new employees. What should you do to connect with them effectively?

    Herd behavior or Following the crowd
    (The topic was once discussed on 2nd June 2016)
     

    In a social study, a person is asked to stand still on a busy street corner in New York City and stare straight up at the sky. About 4% of all passers-by stopped to look up with that one person. When 5 people stood on the sidewalk and looked straight up at the sky, 20% of all passers-by stopped to look up. Finally, when a group of 18 people looked up simultaneously, almost 50% of all passers-by stopped to look up.
    The experiment shows how individuals make decisions by observing and mimicking the actions (rational or irrational) of a larger group. In psychology, this phenomenon is called Herd behavior or the power of the crowd. Herding often involves people using the actions of others as a guide to sensible behavior, instead of independently seeking out high-quality information about the likely outcomes of these actions. Herd behaviors are often observed in demonstrations, riots, and general strikes, sporting events, religious gatherings, episodes of mob violence, and everyday decision-making, judgment, and opinion-forming.

    Questions for discussion:
    1. Can you give examples of herd behavior? Have you ever found yourself being one of the crowd?
    2. Is it better to be different or follow the crowd?
    3. Who controls the crowd?
    4. What can be done to avoid crowd manipulation?
