How to make FULFILLING digital connections
The goal of “building community” or “making connections” online is as broad and unrealistic as “making friends anywhere in the world.”
Streamline and focus your online connection goals with these strategy ideas.
The overall strategy: Connect in the context of shared topics of interest.
Here’s some evergreen advice from the smarties at Deloitte.
“Take note of where and on what topics your future connections post so you can intelligently contribute to the conversation. Making connections can come in the form of resharing or commenting on your connections posts with powerful insights and developing the relationship from there.”
The overall strategy: Know what you want and be direct about it.
This tip from TinyBuddha is rooted in the beautiful simplicity of honesty and openness. For example, if you’re in the market for a serious mentor or vice versa, then don’t agree to do someone’s household chores.
The overall strategy: Lean on tech.
Apps (like these 15 examples that help you make friends) expose you to a pool of individuals as interested in connecting with you as you are with them. You all joined the app to achieve the same goal. You’re less likely to encounter the awkward mismatch of intentions and interests that plague other venues and meeting places.
The overall strategy: Go niche!
Dedicate your networking time to groups and organizations aligned with your specific interests and passions. Goodwall offers the following examples:
- Book clubs
- Expat communities
- Travel groups
- Neighborhood ferret owners
- Beer connoisseurs

Start figuring IT out
What do you really want to figure out? A dream? A problem?
Marie Forleo doesn’t care what it is. She cares only about making sure you know you can figure it out.
While Nike would advise you to just do it, Marie advises you to just get started.
Start working for what you want immediately. Patch your doubts with the certainty that you can and will figure it out as you go. The key is giving yourself the opportunity to figure things out, and that only happens after you get started.
