One of the things I realized lately is the presence of dozens of communication tools, for instance WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, IRC, Google Talk, Skype, SMS etc. Every platform has its own pros and cons.
There are still people on this planet who think that namedropping enhance their status. Name-dropping is lame and doesn`t work on me, it only makes you look silly. So what you`ve worked with person X, this doesn`t prove quality or skills!
