Encouraged by Interest in Online Professional Networking

26 Jun

Online blogs are reporting (such as here and here) about new applications on Facebook that faciliate “professional social networking.” They says that Facebook users want tools to help them exploit their social networks for professional purposes. This is great news.

But the best professional relationships still are personal, not virtual. Take it from Lori Smart who, posting a comment on one of the articles above, said that she and friends had blocked one of the apps after being annoyed by “people you have never worked with continually asking you to recommend them.”

Down4Lunch is the best of both worlds. We connect you online to potentially great professional contacts so that you can meet in person to forge lasting relationships leading to new career and business opportunities. Apps that discover professional connections among Facebook friends are helpful, but the best relationships still are made in person.
