Message 3 of 3: Michelle McArthur on 19/03/2012
I think that it is a widespread phenomena, I think that there is so much out there with the likes of Linked In, Twitter, Blogs, webinars etc etc etc plus all of the face to face stuff and no one wants to miss anything, so everyone signs up for everything and then prioritises on the day if it is a webinar or meeting.With discussion threads etc, I think it is down to their personal hot topics of the moment and they get drawn into the discussion. As we are social beings, and a basic need is to have a sense of belonging, if we then get engaged and accepted into discussion, we are more likely to keep going back until such time as the hot topic is superceded by another hot topic and then we move on.
I think that time is such a valuable and scare resource and life moves at such a fast pace that the norm is now to have short lived relationships, we are used to coming together for a specific purpose and then are quite at ease with moving on when the purpose has been fulfilled or is no longer of interest to us.
