What is the All Friends Project™ & why am I reaching out to my Facebook friends?

Hopefully you will believe the All Friends Project™ is bold. The suggestion is; let’s get out from behind the keyboard!

How many times to ‘friends on social media’ actually interact outside of Facebook? In my experience, it is rare, though it shouldn’t be.

The concept? Just an invite to have a coffee and talk.

There’s no ‘hidden agenda‘ . . just a desire to have real conversation for 15 or 20 minutes. 

Real one-on-one social interaction without selling a car or insurance or online marketing or anything else.

Real social interaction — not to be confused with social media — for most people is something they do less and less, especially during the pandemic. So let’s change that, what do you say?

Why should we want to talk? Good question.

Cacooning has been a trend in society for decades. In fact, if it were not for work, family and necessary stuff, like shopping or going to a doctor, many people have no real contact at all, except occasionally with a neighbor.

How do we do this?

I favor the use of Zoom webinar and I have a zoom account but, a phone call or WhatsApp call work fine too.

What is the worst that can happen? Well, since the suggested rules of engagement of the All Friends Project™ are to set aside 15 minutes minimum to actually talk to a social media ‘friend’ you don’t really know or a friend you do know but have not spoken to in a long time — you might feel like to wasted 15 minutes.

If, on the other hand, it is enjoyable, the conversation could continue for up to 20 minutes. 

Since I intend to promote this concept — suggesting to others that they do the same — then I will continue to explain this using 3rd party writing.

You see, the All Friends Project™ will help our conversation skills, could create real friendships and even romances, though the last possibility is not the purpose.

Parties must agree to do no business and otherwise bring no attitude.

All you need is an open mind and 15 minutes to talk.

Now imagine you were to do this once a week for a year. You will have spoken to 50 people that you would otherwise never get to know. And what might come of that?

The All Friends Project™ has the potential to turn social media connections — Facebook friends — into real friends.

Do we expect to hit it off with everyone? No.

However, the Law of Averages suggests that it will happen. That we will like some of the people we meet.

Of course, it may renew old friendships too, which would be awesome, no?

Imagine what your life would be like if you lost a friend — a real one (not a social media connection you barely know). Basically, when you rekindle a friendship, you already lost that friend. This is a way to get them back onside.

The other side of the coin is; some your social media friends are people that could be real fiends but, through no real contact, that friendship is lost to you!

So, I leave you with a question; Why leave it that way?
