Question: Can working with the social networks be considered valuable dissemination?
Answer: Although the Internet is widely used and you can practically convey scents through it, we cannot really feel people without physical contact. We can’t!
Even businessmen say that nothing happens without a personal touch. Although they can contact their partners on the other side of the world through banks, they still fly over to meet them. They have to meet them personally and to discuss different issues in conventions or over a meal. The personal contact is very important.
Even heads of states visit each other, and it isn’t because it’s an essential ritual but because this contact is necessary between human beings. Something happens here which cannot take place any other way.
You can imagine any virtual connection that you like, virtual love, etc., but it’s all a substitute and nothing can replace the physical connection. Of course, working on the Internet is essential, but still, when I visited Krasnoyarsk and Novosibirsk, I had such a connection with people over there that nothing can replace it. This contact is very important.
