Social Networks to superficially know each other● As Demian wrote in our email exchanges, "When you dont know somebody, social networks are a quick, useful and efficient way to know him /her.

A. Things that we can have in common (in a group) B. Things that we all have in common (as a human being) C. 10 Things that we guess that we have in common (now that we got acquainted thanks to social networks and short email presentations)● The 3 next slides gather the points we chose to show because they represent the best of that step. 9

Different time zones, personal motivation & schedules required us to be creative regarding the team organization.● No matter where we live, come from, study, work or what we believe; open-mindness, will, reactivity, patience and mutual-understanding allow people to achieve goals and find creative ways to solve problems.
