In the age of modern technology, people have almost boycotted meeting in person and rather prefer communicating with people via video call, phone call or chat. In fact, excessive use of such technological means has diminished the ability to have interaction face to face. But it is our communication skills that make us social animals and hence few social traits are required to be successful in different spheres of life.
The most important factor that makes face to face communication effective is the eye contact. Maintaining an eye contact indicates your confidence in every word you are speaking and also symbolizes that you have dedicated your complete attention to that person. You can be truly successful when you are able to keep people around you happy. When you develop the skill of spreading happiness around you, then good things will surely follow you. Another fantastic way to keep yourself socially attached to people is by appreciating them and their good habits, behavior or any act. You also need to be cautious about how you exhibit yourself in front of public so that people don't have misconceptions about you.
You must also ensure that you appreciate people and keep their reputation up while speaking in their absence. If you are asked to speak about a person with whom you don't share a good rapport, then you must avoid speaking about them. If you want to be socially active, then you must learn to be a good listener as it helps you to understand people and strengthen your relationship with them. If you want to know more about people around you, then you must observe little details about them. You must maintain a composed attitude by controlling your emotions and being polite while dealing with people. You must have complete control over your negative emotions and must handle situations patiently and politely without putting your reputation at stake.
