Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - A Matter of Perception

« The Agency Side of Business: Edward Boches, Mullen | Main | Top Ten Reasons Why Your LinkedIn Question is Getting (Mostly) Pitches »


The closeness part caught my attention immediately because the assumption is that you'd need it to engage - you don't. How liberating, actually!

Excellent choice for the lead sentence alone.

"The Web enables us to interact with people - and brands - at the level of closeness or distance of our own choosing."

There is a balance somewhere in allowing the public to choose it's level of engagement and I think we sometime forget that given that 78 percent of public engage brands and companies online, regardless of closeness.
