Zapping was yesterday a concrete behavior, linked to our tv use. Jumping from channel to channel, an eye on remote control, the other on printed tv magazine, phenomena that exploded with arrival of satellite and cable tv, with several and diversified channels. With profusion, we had no choice to pay less attention to “carpe diem” instant, in the benefit of being champions of “more”. Last development fury and for VOD programs, prove that there is another level we just passed: holding time. The way we manage our relations is becoming a accurate exercise between, real friends, “interest” friends, randomized friends and others we could live without.
And I must admit, profusion of social web, lead to some equal behavior with so called “friends” encountered on social networks. There are even tools (machines!) to make work for you, in adding contacts you’ll never know…A kind of action, to feel someone important and being secured? not sure. Before social web, who, while reading this paper, had 2.000 real  friends? who could manage with such? Yet, I didn’t find anyone, even if it was his job, with these characteristics…;-)

If social web brought ability for anyone of us to write, talk or read anything in various topics, it exists because of some who invest lots of time, to share best of the web. And if free model blew ever else model yet, it doesn’t mean that there is no value, and attention to be stared in such situation. Keeping attention and sustaining speach and sharing, doesn’t match with zapping mates, who collect friends and contacts as stickers. Some said, we can’t handle with more than 150 contacts, in a interesting and regular relationship. I know it’s really easy to have a huge audience, that can hear what you say, but is “hear” sufficient to hold a relation, that could be wealthy for everyone?

We, in fact are caught in a “hub” of information, encounterings, meetings, accelerated by technology, and in this context, high is the power of media to confuse ourself in an ocean of true/false conversations. We just have now to learn again to sort, make our mind of real kind of life, real values, real sense. Storm for the twirling RSS, won’t make us blind or deaf, if we make the effort of reflection, to value information, content and where it comes from: even if trust is an essential enlightening skill to cope with too much information, we usually and formerly now, don’t try to evaluate. 2.0 is the best way to viral any information (rumour or hoax), for free and for…fake too. Confronted with this, even if tools have risen so much, more than we can sometimes handle, man must control machine and channels: obligation is done to stare and watch what kind of receiver we want to be. Zapping is so light, too light for attention anyone must have, to warm sender, and to be a accurate receiver.

My parents did have a job for their life, I’ve myself had 5 until now, and my children are on the way to do several ones at a time…Time is running out and emergency to make the point and use the compass again to reborn and take time to think at where we go and what we do: give value, sense and aim to who we meet, and social places like blogs are great examples to give a new direction to argumentation. That’s what I try to do, for passion and attention to others, others we often can’t see for hedonism, egoism or unattention. And that’s not why there is too much networks, that we must waste relationship by zapping too fast, while there is relevant information to listen. Machine and techs not for what they ARE, but for what they DO. And fortunately we have brain and emotion, yet…

Here you can find several apps to share your “presence” and your linking power. Then, everybody can know how touch you, who you touch and who you know, what you allow to show to others. And you can map your “friends” circle to see which interactions you can find between two contacts, while you think they didn’t met before. Interesting, because of famous quote “together are people who are similar”. Fortunately, Social Media can help you growing, in the quest of meeting new people completely different from you…It’s one of the best exciting stuff, taking risks and discover always new things with new people. A cute app called “lijit“, that can make you graphs, links and drawing representations of your influence, network and links.

You can step and build your own community, skipping toward apps like ning or French affinitiz, an invite your closest members to a smaller circle, to target more and more, the subjects you want to share. As you do, you’re more accurate in the way others know you, and you can discover more things about your new private members. You can do more rooms in Friendfeed, so long in Facebook groups too, to increase the precision of your exchanges. Some say to know really people, you can’t manage more than 150 friends in first sight, or first level, to make a real relation in a sustainable and valuable way. How many of you have more…? Do you use to send and read more of them, when they publish, send, share something? Do you consider you know them “well”? And according to your work, can ou say all your friends can remember and talk about you, your tastes and your profile as well..? No really answers, because of the jungle and the precipitation we do, in adding contacts as we collect bugs or stamps…

“Choose is saying no to others” ; between lots and few, is there any chance to accurate the relation we share and the face we want to show to others? Do you think, people which know you want to make you in relation with others they know, or don’t want to? What kind of echo do you send back, to any contact you have on the web, communities or posts? More you step forward, more you’ll like it, people are awesome in their faculty to welcome…Up to you to be appreciated, in the time you need to…As real life, pay attention to others is such more relevant and valuable than running faster than the wind! Take your time, enjoy people like you would like them to enjoy you, and get the best of them…But most of all “know yourself well” is the mirror of your investment in others…
