    1. We all are in search for the middle ground and as we all know, one cannot underestimate the importance of human interactions and relationships. The ever changing technology, however, redefines what is “human relationship” and “what can be counted as person-to-person interaction.” Web is no longer a distant doubtful-quality lead generator, it has become an intermediary in human communications, often one-on-one, even more often, one-to-many. The point we are making is that B2B companies can no longer ignore the important influence that the interactive virtual world has in purchasing decision making of the new-generation business people. I invite all to post an example of how you or your company’s purchasing decision was affected by the Social-Media chatter, a review blog or general rating found on the web!
