QvQ - Connecting online

Lots of people are talking about QvQ. Quantity vs. Quality. It is the number of people you connect to in an online social networking system. Quality means you are stuck up and only connect with people you know well. Quantity means you are a bad person and try to connect with everyone. The true issue is how much time and how committed you are to creating, maintaining and growing your network. If you cannot drop an email to every person in your network every six months, you are probably over extended and do not have as valuable of a network. But how valuable is it if I am only connected to people I know super well? Not very. manageable is different to everyone. Keep your network manageable for you, and you will have a quality network no matter what the size.
