I utilize them all but, my primary means of communication is still face-to-face or phone calls. I'm old fashioned that way and I believe that will eventually prevail because the internet seems so impersonal to many.

Example from TODAY: I got a call from a past client that he was recommending me to one of he and his wife's friends relocating to Charlotte. I immediately gave her a call but, had to leave a message. 

I got a call back this morning, telling me that several of their friends had referred them to agents and I was the only one who had responded with a phone call. "We're going with you because you actually know how to communicate in a manner other then email or texting!" She told me they liked the 'human factor' in communication and everyone else had reached out to them via text or email.

YES, we are in 2018 but, the 'human factor' is still important - especially when these folks are making the largest financial decision of their lives. Just MHO!

IoT has been a wonderful buzzword for several years now.  I'm waiting for developers to consider SECURITY before they put out the internet connected TV/lights/fridge/thermostat/front door locks/power meters/....

 

For now, I'm strictly old school when it comes to my devices (other than phone, Roku and tablet).

What I find fascinating is that the internet of everything is positioned between two non-rational lifeforms that don't always use critical thinking.

The Internet is a tool. I still connect with people the old fashioned way; with exception to my Podcast. My Podcast has connected me to many different states, Canada, Australia and South America. TECH IS A GREAT TOOL.
