Good insight, MarcyOne.

This thread was started in 2005, when online social networking was in its very early stages and rarely used by businesses, but a heck of a lot has changed during the past four years. It's now almost impossible to grow a business effectively without paying at least some attention to the online social networks, since they now attract such huge audiences of engaged consumers and business owners.

I still place a lot of value on real-world networking and regularly attend two large networking groups here on the Gold Coast, but Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook have become just as important to my business lately as any real-world networking group.
