Social networks have made building and widening your social contacts
extremely easy. In the past, you might have had to attend numerous
functions and paying for gas, food, and clothing just to show up and hand out
a few business cards that later got tossed. With online social networking, the
costs of networking are zero, but the rewards are immeasurable. Creating a
list of social contacts online can lead to opportunities worldwide, something
that local networking could never do for you.
