2. INTEGRATION with each other

2.1. The pieces of my PLN work together in several ways. Most people I follow in social networks are doing what I want to do (consulting, speaking, etc.). Seeing how others connect and promote themselves is useful to me. I am fascinated by the endless amount of content and ways to connect with others online.
