Networking to Get and strangers

The last two questions from the recent article in The Sun newspaper

Isn’t Facebook just for kids, can I network there?
Since Facebook opened membership to the public, people have looked at the business potential, with mixed success. Facebook have started ‘brand’ pages where people can become a ‘Fan’ of your business.

Facebook is ‘viral’ by nature, meaning that you can spread your message. But you have to understand how to do so and your business needs to be a good fit.

Why would a bunch of strangers want to help me?
Many people avoid networking because they can’t see themselves referring, or being referred by strangers.

Think about the people you support and refer now. Can you remember when you didn’t know them? Networking is about building relationships. Networks provide you with the opportunity to do that. The rest is up to you.
