2009 is the year of Internet networking.
Until recently I had no real presence on Active Rain and must admit, I thought FaceBook was only for teenagers.
Wow! Was I wrong!!!!!!!
During the past three weeks, I have made contact with real estate professionals all over the world through Active Rain.
In only one week on FaceBook, I have been able to connect with 130 'friends'. Some are from childhood, some from college. Most are professionals who are valuable networking sources.
It seems to be more difficult for us babyboomers to put ourselves 'out there' on the Internet. One of my friends actually told me last week that she didn't want to accept my invitation to join FaceBook because she had 'heard' there are 17,000 child predators on the site. I told her that at our age, that isn't something she needs to be worried about - personally.
If you aren't already using facebook as another source of networking opportunites, sign up today! There is no charge for any of the services and it is amazing how many 'friends' you'll find.
So, quit reading this post and go make some friends!
